During a crucial February Sweeps week, “Nightline” was the #1 show in late night last week.

“Nightline” was up compared to the same week last year in Total Viewers (+13%), A25-54 (+8%) and A18-49 (+7%). Season to date, “Nightline” ranks No. 1 in late-night among Total Viewers, and the two younger demos, ahead of NBC’s “The Tonight Show” and CBS’ “The Late Show.”

ABC’s ratings are based on a 25-minute broadcast, while CBS and NBC are based on approximately :50 minutes (prior to the final national commercial break of each program).
