“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” has delivered a five-week high and  a week-to-week gain of +17% in April 28-May 2 ratings results in adults 18-49, allowing Fallon to match the combined rating of CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for the week. 

 

At 12:35 a.m., “Late Night with Seth Meyers” was up  for a second consecutive week to also achieve a five-week high and a week-to-week gain of +7% in 18-49.

 

For the week of April 28-May 2, Fallon’s 1.23 rating in 18-49 was up versus the prior week’s 1.05 rating for the top “Tonight” rating since a 1.33 for the week of March 24-28.  Versus a 0.82 for the same week last year, “Tonight” is up +50% in 18-49.

 

Fallon’s 1.23 equaled the combined ratings of “Letterman” (0.55) and “Kimmel” (0.68).  In total viewers, Fallon’s 3.787 million is up versus the prior week’s 3.358 million by +13%, to top Letterman (2.838 million) by +33% and Kimmel (3.358 million vs. 2.487 million) by +36%.  Note that Kimmel was in rebroadcast on Friday.

 

At 12:35 a.m. ET, Meyers’ 0.61 rating is up +7% versus the prior week’s 0.57 and up +9% versus a 0.56 for his prior week of originals, April 7-11.  Versus a 0.47 for “Late Night” during the year-ago week, last week’s 0.61 was up +30%.

 

Meyers outrated Letterman in 18-49 (0.61 vs. 0.55), despite starting an hour later.  Meyers ranked #1 in every key ratings measure head to head versus ABC’s “Nightline” from 12:35-1:05 a.m. and versus CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” from 12:35-1:35 a.m.  The “Late Night” margins of victory in  18-49 rating were +56% versus “Nightline” from 12:35-1:05 (0.67 vs. 0.43) and +69% versus “Late Late Show” from 12:35-1:35 (0.61 vs. 0.36).
