Nightline” IS #1 AMONG ADULTS 25-54, ADULTS 18-49, AND TOTAL VIEWERS—OUTPERFORMS “LETTERMAN”

ABC News “Nightline” placed first among Adults 25-54, Adults 18-49, and Total Viewers, outperforming CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” for the week of February 22, 2010, according to Nielsen Media Research. NBC’s “The Tonight Show” was pre-empted due to the Winter Olympics.

For the season, “Nightline” also continues to rank second, besting “Tonight” among Total Viewers (3.90 million) and Adults 25-54 (1.58 million / 1.3 rating).

Last week, “Nightline” featured a “Face-Off” on weight, a profile of financial guru Dave Ramsey, more on Toyota’s recall, a report on the Drew Peterson case and whether hearsay evidence from the deceased can be admissible, and coverage of the winter storm that impacted much of the east coast.

*Note:   “Letterman” aired repeats last week.

ABC News’ “Nightline” is anchored by Cynthia McFadden, Terry Moran and Martin Bashir. John Donvan and Vicki Mabrey are correspondents. James Goldston is the executive producer. The program airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m., ET on the ABC Television Network.
