NBC SAYS GOLDEN GLOBES COVERAGE AVERAGED 13.1 RATING

     (The following press release from NBC Universal was received by e-mail. 
The sender verified the statement.) 
*From 8-11 p.m., NBC's coverage of "The 70th Annual Golden Globe
Awards" aired live in all time zones and currently available fast
affiliate-based ratings are not time zone-adjusted and understate the
telecast's ratings.  In metered-market households, which are time
zone-adjusted, the "Golden Globes" averaged a 13.1 rating, 20 share, up
12 percent versus last year's 11.7/18. 
*It's the top "Golden Globes" rating in metered-market households
in six years (since Monday, Jan. 15, 2007, 16.0/23).   
*In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, the "Golden Globes"
jumped 23 percent versus last year in adults 18-49, for the top Local
People Meter rating in the five years NBC has been tracking the
category. While these major-market LPM ratings are likely higher than
where the national 18-49 ratings will come in later today, the currently
available 18-49 result in the Local People Meter markets is a 7.6
rating, 19 share versus last year's 6.2/16 in the LPM markets.  
*From 7-8 p.m., the "Golden Globes Red Carpet Special 2013" aired
live in all time zones and the fast affiliate-based ratings due from
Nielsen at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT are subject to significant revision.
In metered-market households, the "Golden Globes Red Carpet Special
2013" averaged a 4.8 rating, 7 share, up 26 percent versus its 3.8/6 of
one year ago.  It's the top result in metered-market households for the
"Red Carpet Special" in four years (since Sunday, Jan. 11, 2009, 4.9/8). 
NOTE: All national ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media
Research unless otherwise indicated.
