Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon

via press release:

In its seventh week, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” continued to generate elevated ratings, up versus “Tonight’s” results for the same week last year by 46% in adult 18-49 rating, while time-period rivals on ABC and CBS were down versus the same week last year.

 

For the week, Fallon topped CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” in adult 18-49 rating by an 87% margin (with a 1.18 rating vs. a 0.63) and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” by 79% (1.18 vs. 0.66).  In total viewers, Fallon outdelivered Letterman by 22% (3.829 million vs. 3.148 million) and Kimmel by 46% (3.829 million vs. 2.627 million).

 

In a week that included the announcement of Letterman’s retirement and a Wednesday appearance by former President Bill Clinton on “Kimmel,” Fallon’s 1.18 rating was up 46% versus the year-ago 0.81 for “Tonight,” while “Late Show” declined by 5% (0.63 vs. 0.66) and “Kimmel” was down by 10% (0.66 vs. 0.73).

 

And at 12:35 a.m. ET, week six of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” outscored CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” in all key ratings measures and also topped ABC’s “Nightline” in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. ET in every key category.

 

In adult 18-49 rating, Meyers beat Ferguson by a 51% margin for the week (with a 0.59 rating vs. a 0.39) and outdelivered “Nightline” in their head-to-head half-hour by 76% (0.67 vs. 0.38 from 12:30-1 a.m.).
