During the week of June 3, 2013, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live delivered its best performance among Adults 18-49 in 4 weeks (since w/o 5/6/13), despite airing repeat telecasts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. JKL was up over the year-ago week (which consisted of 1 repeat and 4 original telecasts) by 32% among young adults. In fact, this week marked JKL’s 22nd consecutive week of year-over-year growth in Adults 18-49.

 

  • Thursday’s telecast of JKL (on 6/6/13), which featured guest Will Smith, was the show’s strongest regular telecast on any night in over 4 years among Adults 18-49 – since Monday, 3/2/09. On Thursday night, JKL was the #1 talk show in late-night in the key young adult demo, holding a 40% advantage over runner-up NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

 

  • Despite airing only 2 original telecasts during the week, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live outdelivered 4 original telecasts of CBS’ The Late Show with David Letterman by 9% in Adults 18-49 and by 5% in Adults 18-34.
