    FLOM2 Finale hits highest non-sports ratings in 9 weeks

    NBC'S 'FOR LOVE OR MONEY 2' FINALE HITS PRIME TIME'S HIGHEST NON-SPORTS 18-49 RATING IN NINE WEEKS

    THE ‘FOR LOVE 1’ AND ‘FOR LOVE 2’ FINALES ARE THE TOP-RATED NON-SPORTS PROGRAMS ON ANY NETWORK IN 15 WEEKS AMONG ADULTS 18-49

    AT 8 P.M., ‘FEAR FACTOR’ LEAPS 30 PERCENT ABOVE ITS YEAR-AGO RESULT

    BURBANK, Calif. -- September 9, 2003 -- Last night’s finale of the NBC reality hit “For Love or Money 2” has achieved the highest adult 18-49 rating for any non-sports telecast on any network since the July 7 finale of “For Love or Money 1.” Those two closing episode of “For Love” are prime time’s #1 and #2 non-sports telecasts among adults 18-49 in the 15 weeks since May 22.


    According to preliminary “fast affiliate-based” in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research, last night’s 8-10 p.m. ET finale of “For Love or Money 2” (5.7 rating, 14 share among adults 18-49, 12.2 million viewers overall) dominated its non-sports competition, winning head-to-head in 18-49 over CBS’ “Everybody Loves Raymond” rebroadcast by a 27 percent margin, over CBS’ “King of Queens” encore by 49 percent, over Fox’s “Paradise Hotel” by 81 percent and over CBS’ “CSI: Miami” rebroadcast by 113 percent.


    “For Love 2” generated impressive growth throughout its two-hour telecast, amassing a 47 percent increase in 18-49 from its first half-hour to its fourth. Versus NBC’s time period result on the same night last year, “For Love 2” tripled the network’s 18-49 rating (5.7/14 vs. 1.9/5).


    From 8-9 p.m. ET last night, “Fear Factor” (3.9/12 in 18-49, 9.4 million viewers overall) scored a powerful 30 percent increase over its 3.0/9 for the night of last year’s “Monday Night Football” season opener.


    Preliminary Sept. 8 nightlong 18-49 averages are: ABC, 6.5/17; NBC, 5.1/13; CBS, 3.2/8; Fox, 2.4/6. Last night’s preliminary total viewer averages are: ABC, 16.0 million; NBC, 11.3 million; CBS, 9.7 million; Fox, 5.1 million. Significant adjustments to these fast-affiliate-based results are possible when Nielsen issues official national results this afternoon, particularly in the case of live telecasts such as ABC’s football.


    In local-market late-night results, “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (4.6 rating, 11 share in metered-market households) defeated CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman” (3.4/8 in metered-market households). ABC’s “Nightline” (3.4/11 in metered-market households) and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (1.4/6 in metered-market households) were delayed by football.

    And I was one of those adult viewers. . . hard to believe. Never watched anything like this in my life. Got hooked. Cheered Erin on from the very beginning. Loved Chad.

    Worked out great for me! And them too!
