    'For Love Or Money' Cashes In Big Numbers

    "FOR LOVE OR MONEY" CASHES IN BIG NUMBERS

    NBC’S NEWEST REALITY-RELATIONSHIP SHOW BUILDS THROUGHOUT ITS TELECAST AND DECISIVELY WINS THE 10-11 P.M. ET HOUR


    BURBANK, Calif. - June 3, 2003 - Last night’s 9-11 p.m. ET premiere of “For Love Or Money” has generated strong numbers, NBC’s second-highest adult 18-49 rating in that time period in the eight weeks since April 2.


    “For Love Or Money” built its 18-49 rating and overall viewer total with each succeeding half-hour and took over first place in the 10 p.m. ET hour among adults 18-49, adults, men and women 18-34 and all key adult-female demographics.


    According to preliminary “fast affiliate” in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research, “For Love Or Money” (4.8 rating, 12 share among adults 18-49, 10.2 million viewers overall) built its 18-49 rating by 36 percent from its first half-hour to its fourth (to a 5.3/14 from a 3.9/10) and by 2.5 million viewers overall.


    “For Love Or Money” matched the 4.8 rating with which Fox’s “American Idol” debuted Tuesday, June 11, 2002, the second-highest 18-49 rating for any reality premiere last summer (excluding “Idol’s” first Wednesday episode, the show’s second telecast overall).


    “For Love Or Money” is the fourth impressive launch of a first-run summer series on NBC over the past seven nights. The others have been: “Dog Eat Dog,” which earned NBC’s highest Tuesday 8-10 p.m. ET 18-49 rating since April 8; the series premiere of “Fame,” which scored NBC’s strongest Wednesday 8-10 p.m. ET result in 18-49 since Dec. 11; and Sunday’s “Crime & Punishment,” which retained 100 percent of its 18-49 lead-in from “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”


    From 8-9 p.m. ET last night, an encore telecast of “Fear Factor” (4.0/12 in 18-49, 9.3 million viewers overall) led the time period in 18-49 and several other key demographic categories.


    Preliminary June 2 nightlong 18-49 averages are: NBC, 4.5/12; CBS, 4.5/12; Fox, 3.1/9; ABC, 1.7/5. Last night’s preliminary total viewer averages are: CBS, 12.7 million; NBC, 9.9 million; Fox, 7.4 million; ABC, 4.0 million.


    In last night’s local-market late-night results, “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (4.9 rating, 12 share in metered-market households) defeated CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman” (3.5/9 in metered-market households) and ABC’s “Nightline” (3.3/8 in metered-market households) and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (1.4/5 in metered-market households). “Tonight” has topped “Late Show” on 173 of 175 nights in the local markets this season.


    NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” (2.0/7 with an encore telecast) beat its first-run competition, CBS’ “Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn” (1.6/6) and the second half of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

    NBC will be loving this, perhaps it will prompt them to actually keep their reality shows on schedule in future.

    They've already done a better job with the official site than they ever managed for Meet My Folks.
