FIRST TIME IN 10 YEARS "Nightline" BEATS "LETTERMAN" 12 WEEKS IN A ROW AMONG TOTAL VIEWERS

ABC News "Nightline" was the number one program among Total Viewers for the week of June 28, 2010, besting CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" according to Nielsen Media Research. This marks the twelfth consecutive week "Nightline" has outperformed "Letterman" among Total Viewers; the last time this happened was in 2000. Season to date, "Nightline" posted 3.80 million Total Viewers, just 20,000 viewers away from first place.

Note: "The Tonight Show" aired late Monday-Friday due to Wimbledon highlights; ratings are excluded from the weekly average.

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.
