In addition, JKL was up in both Viewers (+14%) and young adults (+22%) over the same week last year (w/o 2/22/10), building its overall audience over the year-ago week for the 2nd week in a row. Impressively, JKL posted the largest yearly increase of any late-night broadcast program in the key young adult demo.

On that evening, JKL topped NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon by a solid 24% in Adults 18-49 and beat CBS’ The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson by 20%. Further, on that Thursday airing, Kimmel drew 16% more overall viewers than NBC’s Fallon and 3% more than CBS’ Ferguson.
