In its third week in its new 11:35pm time slot during the week of January 21, 2013, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live grew week to week in both Total Viewers (+4%) and Adults 18-49 (+2%) to score its 2nd-biggest weekly audience in its history (2.855 million), behind only the show’s debut week at 11:35pm two weeks ago. JKL saw gains over the year-ago week of 68% in Total Viewers and 50% in Adults 18-49, growing its overall audience year over year for the 9th week in a row.


  • Thursday’s broadcast of JKL, which featured Matt Damon’s takeover of Kimmel’s late-night show, was the week’s #1 telecast in late-night among Adults 18-49.


  • JKL’s Thursday’s telecast attracted 3.642 million Total Viewers to qualify as the show’s most-watched regular broadcast ever.


  • ABC’s JKL ran in a near tie with NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in Adults 18-49, as just 43,000 young adults viewers separated the two programs. The ABC late-night program beat The Tonight Show in Adults 18-34 (+5%) for the 3rd straight week.
