‘THE TONIGHT SHOW’ CONTINUES YEAR-TO-YEAR INCREASES IN 18-49 DEMO FOR WEEK OF MAY 5-9

Jimmy Fallon Also Increases ‘Tonight’ Winning Margins Versus One Year Ago Over Kimmel, Letterman; Seth Meyers Tops Year-Ago ‘Late Night’ Leads Over Competition

NEW YORK — May 15, 2014 — In its 12th week, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” continued to generate elevated ratings, with a +20% increase versus “Tonight’s” result for the same week last year in adult 18-49 rating. Time-period rivals on ABC and CBS were down versus the same week last year.

For the week of May 5-9, Fallon averaged a 1.04 rating in adults 18-49 to outscore ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (0.63) by a +65% margin, up from “Tonight’s” +28% margin one year ago. Fallon also topped CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” (0.51) by a +104% margin, up from the year-ago +47%. For the same week last year, “Tonight” averaged a 0.87 as compared to a 0.68 for Kimmel and a 0.59 for Letterman.

For the week, Fallon outdelivered “Kimmel” and “Late Show” in all key ratings measures.

At 12:35 a.m. ET, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” (0.56) topped ABC’s “Nightline” in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. by a margin of +47% (0.63 vs. 0.43 that half-hour), up from a +22% advantage for “Late Night” during the same week last year. From 12:35-1:35 a.m., Meyers outscored CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” by a +70% margin (0.56 vs. 0.33), up from a year-ago +46% win for “Late Night.” Meyers also topped CBS’s Letterman in 18-49 (0.56 vs. 0.51), despite starting an hour later.

Meyers delivered bigger audiences than “Nightline” in their head-to-head half-hour and “Late Late Show” for the full hour in every key demographic — adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.

At 1:35 a.m. ET, “Last Call with Carson Daly” (0.32/2 in adults 18-49) grew +7% versus the same week last year (0.30/2) in 18-49.
