During the week of October 15, 2012, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live hit season highs, growing over the prior week by 16% in Total Viewers and by 17% in Adults 18-49 to deliver its best performance since June – since the weeks of 6/11/12 and 6/18/12, respectively.


  • ABC’s JKL (M-F 12am) dominated CBS’ The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (M-F 12:35am) by double-digit margins in both Total Viewers (+34%) and Adults 18-49 (+24%), beating the CBS late-night program in all 4 weeks of the new season to date. In fact, JKL has drawn a bigger audience than Ferguson in 19 of the 20 days of the season.


  • Monday’s telecast (10/15/12), which featured guests Aziz Ansari, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and June “Mama” Shannon and singer Josh Turner, marked JKL’s most-watched and highest-rated telecast in Adults 18-49 on any night since June – since 6/14/12 and 6/11/12, respectively.

    I love the Jimmy Kimmel show, but I am getting tired of the opening Guillermo skits. At first they were fun, but I think they are using him too much.
