[via press release from NBC]

'BEST TIME EVER' JUMPS +22% VS. LAST WEEK'S PREMIERE, HITS A 10-MONTH SLOT HIGH EXCLUDING 'THE VOICE'

'THE VOICE' IS #1 FOR THE NIGHT, GROWS +17% VS. ITS SPRING FINALE

NBC WINS TUESDAY AMONG THE BIG 4 IN ALL KEY DEMOS

NBC wins Tuesday night among the Big 4 networks, winning the night in all key demographics and claiming six of six half-hours in adults 18-49.

NBC has won the opening two nights of the new season in 18-49 among the Big 4 for a third year in a row, tying ABC's three-year streak from 20 years earlier ('93-94 thru '95-96) as the longest such streak in people meter history .

"Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris" (2.2/7 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall from 10:01-11 p.m. ET):

· Jumps +22% from Week 1 to Week 2 in 18-49 (2.2 vs. 1.8), despite facing dramatically increased competition this week from ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" and CBS's series premiere of "Limitless."

· Note that last fall, 21 of 22 new series launches on the Big 4 declined or were flat from their premieres to Week 2.

· The 0.4 gain from Week 1 to Week 2 in 18-49 (1.8 to 2.2) is the largest increase for regularly-scheduled episodes of a new broadcast series since January 2012 (Fox's "Finder" on Jan. 12 and 19, 2012, 1.7 to 2.2).

· Earns NBC's 18-49 high in the slot excluding "The Voice" in 10 months (since Nov. 11, 2014, 2.2) and matched NBC's high in the slot excluding "The Voice" in nearly a year (since Sept. 30, 2014, 2.3).

· Won the time period among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49, as well as adults 25-54, adults 18-34 and other key demos.

· Is up +29% versus NBC's average in the time period last season (2.2 vs. 1.7, non-sports L+SD).

"The Voice" (3.4/11 in 18-49, 12.1 million viewers overall from 8-10:01 p.m. ET):

· Is the #1 show of the night in adults 18-49, as well as adults 25-54, adults 18-34 and most other key demos.

· Jumps +17% versus the show's spring finale in 18-49 (3.4 vs. 2.9 from 9-11 p.m. on May 19).

· Scored NBC's top rating in the time period in six months (since March 10, 3.8).

· Retained 97% of the prior night's season-premiere rating in 18-49 (3.4 vs. 3.5) and held 98% in total viewers (12.114 million vs. 12.371 million).

· Wins the time period by a +70% margin among the Big 4 in 18-49 (3.4 vs. 2.0 each for both ABC and CBS from 8-10).

NBC led the second night of the 2015-16 season among the Big 4 in 18-49 for a third consecutive year, the longest streak of Premiere Tuesday victories for NBC in people meter history and the longest streak of Premiere Tuesday victories for any net since ABC won six Premiere Tuesdays in a row from 1991-92 to 1996-97.

This is the third consecutive year NBC has won the first two nights of the season in 18-49, matching ABC's streak from 1993-94 to 1995-96 as the longest streak in people meter history.
