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.

    No Emmy nomination for Conan this year (except on his tablet app, which is fantastic).
    The usual TDS/CR noms, along with “always the bridesmaid” Bill Maher, well-deserved Jimmy Fallon, “what the…” SNL and Jimmy Kimmel as the wild card. I guess that Emmy nominations are now standard bonuses to the Emmy hosts.

    “If I made as much money as Letterman, I’d get over any grudge as soon as the first pay check came in. The fact that Letterman can only beat Leno despite NBC’s 4th place status like 4 weeks out of a year is telling.”

    GAR, I think you mean 4 week out a a “half year.” Letterman beat Leno a bunch of times in the first half of the broadcast year.
