It’s the second week in a row NBC has led in adults 18-49 and total viewers, marking the first time since the weeks of September 7-13 and September 14-20, 2010 that NBC has won both 18-49 and total viewers two weeks in a row.

NBC ranked #1 this week among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in all key demographic measures – adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers — including a tie for #1 with Fox in men 18-34.  NBC won four nights this week in adults 18-49 – Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Versus the same week last year, NBC was up by double-digit percentage in every key ratings category, including gains of 20 percent in both adults 18-49 (with a 1.8 rating vs. a 1.5) and total viewers (6.2 million vs. 5.1 million).

NBC programmed the top five shows of the week on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox or CW in both adults 18-49 and total viewers.  The Tuesday edition of “The Voice” was the #1 program of the week in adults 18-49, followed by the Wednesday telecast of “America’s Got Talent,” the Tuesday “Talent,” the Wednesday “Voice” results show and a Wednesday 10:16 p.m. ET encore of “Talent.”  In total viewers, the Wednesday edition of “America’s Got Talent” was #1 for the week, followed by the Tuesday “Talent,” the Tuesday “Voice,” the Wednesday “Talent” encore and the Wednesday “Voice.”
