JIMMY FALLON AND SETH MEYERS RANK #1 FOR THE LATE-NIGHT SECOND QUARTER VS. THEIR ABC-CBS COMPETITION IN ALL KEY MEASURES

NEW YORK — July 2, 2015 — NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers” have dominated late-night ratings for second quarter of 2015, outscoring their ABC and CBS time-period competition in every key ratings category – adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

Fallon averaged a 1.04 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.573 million viewers overall for the quarter, to generate a +68% margin over ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (0.62) in 18-49 and a +121% advantage over “CBS Summer Showcase” (0.47 from May 25 through June 26). Fallon also topped the quarter’s combined CBS average of “CBS Summer Showcase” and “Late Show with David Letterman” in all key measures, including a +68% margin over their combined 0.62 in adults 18-49.

For the second quarter at 12:35 a.m. ET, Meyers averaged a 0.44 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.408 million viewers overall, beating CBS’s “Late Late Show” (0.33) by a +33% advantage in 18-49. In their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m., Meyers outscored “Nightline” by a +28% margin in 18-49 (0.50 vs. 0.39 for that half-hour).

The quarter ended with the week of June 22-26, during which Fallon and Meyers once again outdelivered their respective ABC and CBS time-period competition in all key measures.
