— MediaLifeMagazine.com reports that last night’s American Gladiators premier on NBC drew a very strong rating:

“American Gladiators” averaged a 5.9 adults 18-49 rating from 9 to 11 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, becoming the highest-rated new show on any network this year and generating NBC’s best non-sports numbers in the timeslot in more than three years.

The NBC show, which moves to its regular timeslot tonight, peaked with a 6.1 during its final half hour at 10:30 after averaging a 5.5 in its first half hour. That helped NBC finish within a tenth of a point of leaders ABC and CBS for the night.
