ABC’s “Nightline” outperformed CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” among Total Viewers and adults 18-49, and tied the program among adults 25-54.
NBC’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” took home the crown in all three categories for the week of September 6, however.
Note: Due to the Labor Day holiday, all three programs are based on four days only, Tuesday-Friday. In addition, because of the NFL game on Thursday, The Tonight Show aired approximately 45 minutes later than normal. ABC’s ratings are based on 30-minute broadcast, while CBS and NBC are based on one hour.
