Letterman remained in first place in the A25-54 demo. All three programs were down in viewers from the previous week.

Last week, “Nightline” ran a series of episodes about Scientology, which culminated in a spokesperson walking off during an interview with Martin Bashir. That episode drew 4.25 million viewers Friday night.

The numbers for the week of October 19:

Show Network A25-54 A18-49 Total Viewers
Nightline ABC 1.53M 1.25M 3.87M
Late Show CBS 1.56M 1.25M 3.69M
Tonight Show NBC 1.28M 1.21M 2.39M
