UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – July 12, 2012 – NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” have generated bigger audiences than the ABC and CBS time-period competition in all key ratings categories for the week of July 2-6, a holiday week of mostly encore telecasts in which all Wednesday results were excluded.

 

“Tonight” delivered bigger audiences than the time-period competition of CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" and ABC's combination of "Nightline" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in every key ratings category: adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers. And Jimmy Fallon likewise out-delivered CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and “Kimmel” head to head for their common half-hour in each of those categories.

 

Through the first 42 weeks of the 2011-12 broadcast year, "Tonight" has increased its total-viewer margin over "Late Show" to 18 percent (3.683 million vs. 3.124 million), up from the year-ago season-to-date advantage of 12 percent. Jimmy Fallon has also established a total-viewer lead over "Late Late Show" this season of 18 percent (1.754 million vs. 1.491 million), up from last year's advantage of 4 percent. Jimmy has also increased his season-to-date lead over "Late Late Show" in adults 18-34, to 44 percent (273,000 vs. 190,000) up from last year's 28 percent, and in adults 25-54, up to 13 percent (850,000 vs. 753,000) from 6 percent at this point last season.

 

"Tonight" delivered a bigger 18-49 audience than "Late Show" for the 25th time in 29 weeks while Jimmy Fallon attracted a bigger 18-49 audience than "Late Late Show" for a 32nd week in a row.

    After Letterman’s “spoiler” last night, Jimmy Fallon interview to Anne Hathaway tonight is the most painful thing I’ve seen him doing in a while. It’s like he went back to 2009, nervous and forced. All the conversation was about the things he cannot mention about the movie.

  • Chris

    Anything for ratings, Diana.

    Class and decorum went out the window with that show years ago.

  • wolfmanmozart

    Didn’t know anyone still danced the minuet,let alone 30 per day! Try the quadrille sometime.

  • Brad

    I give credit to Fallon and Letterman. I haven’t watched the full interviews yet, but it has to be hard to plug a movie you can’t really talk about. I mean, the first safe topic that came to mind was talking about Anne Hathaway’s costume, but then I realize that might give away certain things about her character she can’t revile. This is a serious problem.

  • Brad
  • Stone

    Mario, you realize its ridiculous to try to defend Leno in this hotbed of bitter Team Coco LOSERS (yeah I mean YOU Chris, Diana, Brad, Mark). Their bitter rants against Jay is their Group Therapy. Their guy treid to steal Leno’s job, and FAILED, boo hoo… If you like Jay (as MOST viewers, even the all mighty 18-49 crowd, do) then just keep watching and ENJOY LAUGHING!!!! Let these losers drown in their bitter tears.

  • Stone

    Sorry about the typo, you can be sure Team Coco will focus their ire on that. If they TRIED to laugh they probably couldn’t….

  • Chris

    I guess, Stone, you are right. BIG difference between a man trying to steal one’s job and failing, like Conan, and one stealing one’s job and succeeding, like Jay.

    And if you think a .7/.8 in the demo is mighty for a king, you’re as delusional as Super Mario.

  • Diana Santiago

    Who let the troll get wet? Now we have two!

  • Brad

    Mario, you can watch Leno if you want. No one is forcing you not to. I tried to tone down my rhetoric but i guess it wasnt enough. I still watch him from time to time and I always laugh. I like how he crams as many jokes as he can before the commercial break. My father owns a newspaper and so I really enjoy his Headlines. Leno always has good guests on and always has an enjoyable show. For me, he isn’t the best host, but he certainly isn’t the worst. He is a good safe pick in watching a late night show, something everyone can enjoy.

  • Stone

    Chris, you are a fool (you too Diana), exactly what job did Leno steal? The original Tonight show gig when Johnny RETIRED without assigning a successor?That’s right he could have signed paperwork to give it to Dave, but it was left up in the air, and what IDIOT (besides you all) wouldn’t have done anything to get the Tonight Show.

  • Stone

    Oh and Diana, keep your Tiger’s Blood dripping from your fangs off the carpet….Dating Charley Sheen lately?

  • Chris

    Two asses make a pair….

  • Mike

    This used to be a nice place to discuss current late night programs.

    Not anymore.

    Thanks, Mario…

    Have a good life, everybody…bye.

  • Danny

    Here we go again…guess this new guy never heard how Leno and his manager played dirty tricks on Carson through NBC…

    And if you don’t think Leno was involved, you’re really naive.

  • Stone

    Hit a nerve eh, Coco-ites? Go on, Chris, Diana, et al, keep bullying the dissenters like poor Mario. Cruelty is your forte, and after this is YOUR blog, Team Coco Therapy Rants Central!

  • Chris

    Ah, ignorance reigns. I watch Conan once in a while, not a team Coco person. So you have no idea what you’re talking about.

    Although I sense Mario and Stone are one and the same…

  • Brad

    There was a clause to give Letterman the tonight show or pay $1M. Letterman didn’t realize that was chump change for NBC.

    I’m with you Chris, notice how both of them don’t fact check.

  • Chris

    I had forgotten Letterman had that clause in his contract. Not sure which is more astonishing…that he thought a million bucks was a penalty to NBC, or that he could trust what he called the NBC execs pinheads that they would do the right thing.

    What I don’t remember is if when NBC was finally ready and offered Letterman the Tonight Show, dumping Jay, if his proposed salary was close to what he was to make on CBS.
