‘Today’ Leading ‘GMA’; ‘Tonight’ Closing In On Dave

NBC’s “Today” opened its widest advantage over “Good Morning America” in more than two years, according to Nielsen daytime and fringe ratings for the Jan. 2-6 week, while “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” finished just 0.6 rating points behind “Late Show With David Letterman.”

Letterman continued to hold a commanding demo edge, however, while “Nightline” battled Leno for second in households in their common half-hour.

In other areas, CBS extended its daytime win streak to 305 weeks but again trailed ABC in key female demos, while the Fox Children’s Network stayed out front in the children’s realm.

“Today” delivered a 4.5 rating, 20 share in households to a 4.1/19 for “GMA.”

“Late Show” (5.3/15) topped “Tonight” (4.7/13) and “Nightline” (5.5/15), whose half-hour average excludes Monday, when the show was delayed by the Sugar Bowl.
