Leno Defeats Letterman in All Key Demos and Bests Kimmel in 18-49, 25-54, and Beats Both in Total Viewers; ‘Tonight Show’ Scores Highest Demo Week Since December
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — June 20, 2013 — “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” both scored impressive wins in total viewers and several key demos over their timeslot competition for the week of June 10-14.

“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” topped “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and “Nightline” in all three key demos as well as total viewers.

The Monday, June 10 telecast of “The Tonight Show” had its highest 18-49 demo rating since Dec. 18, 2012. In fact, June 10-14 was Leno’s best week in the demo since Dec. 17-21, 2012.

  • Gary Middleton

    The next time anyone says that 10 pm lead-ins aren’t important because the local news comes in between or because people have remotes now or whatever, tell them that Kimmel’s biggest ratings in a decade came on an NBA finals week when he aired 3 reruns.

  • Nick

    3.8 million for Leno? That’s a huge increase week-to-week, and way up from the season average. And taking the slight edge in the demo, even with Kimmel having two huge lead-ins – another great weekly performance for Leno.

  • Gary Middleton

    Nick, I’m a little confused because no exclusions were mentioned. Did NBC include a night on which the hockey game ended at 1:06 a.m.? I find that hard to believe.

  • Gary Middleton

    So there’s the 0.5 some were expecting from Dave, and Ferguson got pulled down to 0.3.

  • Gary Middleton

    Some additional data courtesy the ABC release, if I’m reading it correction:

    -Dave’s demo last week was .53, Ferguson’s .32

    -Kimmel very barely rounded up to .9

    -Kimmel did 1.3 Tuesday and 1.1 Thursday

    -Nightline did .75 Thursday

  • Gary Middleton

    *if I’m reading it correctly

  • a p garcia

    And NBC wants to get rid of Leno for telling jokes that are mainly true of NBC brass. When Fallon takes over, from what I’ve heard, he won’t top Leno in the ratings. I think Johnny Carson would now approve of Leno and I think FOX TV will be the real winner.

  • GARebelman

    So Kimmel has a huge week and still doesn’t beat Leno.

  • sitcomlover

    Proof the American viewing public has their heads up….oh well, they wouldn’t know good comedy if it hit them in the face. Leno should retire and play with his freakin cars. Not funny!

  • Gary Middleton

    A down-to-the-wire game 7 after a thrilling game 6. I don’t see how Kimmel won’t finally beat Leno this week.

  • Douglas in TN

    So Jay Leno and Paula Deen fired within a few weeks of each other.

    Maybe they can get a show together…maintain Meal or no Meal…she cooks, he provides the lame jokes.

  • Gary Middleton

    Sorry if I’m misreading the chart, but did Daily Show/Colbert fail to make the top 100 for the first time ever? If they did, then the Leno/Letterman fans should be prepared for the possibility that NBA finals games 6 and 7 really wiped everybody out.

  • Gary Middleton

    “We got our ass kicked last night.”

    -Leno

  • GARebelman

    Jay said they didn’t win a single market last night except the Cleveland market.

  • GARebelman

    BTW Gary this isn’t indicative of what ratings will be like this summer even though you are enjoying this ;) I am sure Kimmel will sink after this week.

  • Gary Middleton

    “Jay said they didn’t win a single market last night except the Cleveland market.”

    Lest anyone interprets that seriously, it was of course a Lebron James joke. Leno had some strong stuff tonight.

  • Nick

    Leno was great tonight. His quick wit always shines when Terry’s on the show. It doesn’t get much funnier than that. Good monologue too, and those strange “audience participation” bits always turn out pretty funny in the end.

  • Nick

    With a 0.8 lead-in and against Game 7, I wouldn’t be surprised if Leno sunk to the 0.6 range. Regardless of what is airing when, I really can’t see Leno ever going below that.

    Letterman, on the other hand, could’ve been as bad as a 0.4

  • GARebelman

    The audience thing is fairly new and strangely works. Though I did love the Fallon jab at the end of it. Terry Bradshaw always livens up the show. Those two know how to bounce off of each other quite well.

  • Neal

    Doug you lying redneck! Paula Deen is fired at the end of the month while Leno is on till next year. That is not “within a few weeks” of each other! Learn how to tell time!

    Leno keeps proving week after week he is da KING!
