‘Dateline’ Prince Interview Takes Monday Crown

Jun 19, 2007  •  Post A Comment

Matt Lauer’s exclusive interview with Princes William and Harry gave Monday night’s “Dateline NBC” its best rating in two years.
“Dateline” was the highest-rated program among adults 18 to 49, according to preliminary Nielsen ratings, scoring a 4.1. The newsmagazine crowned a night of summer originals for NBC that led off with the season finale of “Deal or No Deal” (3.1) and the modest debut of dating reality show “Age of Love” (2.4 – NBC’s best rating in the time period since the “Heroes” finale in May, but falling 23 percent from its lead in).
Fox came in second for the evening with “Hell’s Kitchen” (3.4), down 21 percent from last week but the second highest-rated program for the night.
CBS was third with repeats and an original episode of “Creature Comforts” (1.3), down a notch from last week.
In fourth place, ABC had an original episode of “Ex-Wives Club” (1.4) and repeats. The CW had repeats.
Broadcast ratings were likely impacted by the premiere of TNT’s “The Closer,” which debuted its third season to a 6.2 rating in metered market households. “The Closer” ratings represent its second-best rating to date.

  1. RE: Dateline June 18th. 2007
    Very interesting interview; only thing is, from where some of us were watching, Winnipeg Canada, there seemed to be a problem with the transmission.
    The “screen” would “freeze” every minute or so, which made it difficult to follow Matt Lauer conversations with HRH Prince William and Harry.
    Also the fact that NBC must have made a “killing” with the commercials! There seemed to be more than usual.

  2. I dont believe that anyone would have been more suitable to interview these young men than matt lauer.
    He knows how to connect with people in one way or another mostly positave.
