Every major late-night series went on hiatus throughout the week of August 21-25, 2017, which resulted in some predictable drops from all of them. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” fell from its previous 0.63 to a 0.58 rating in adults 18-49 this time around but stayed on top in the 11:35 p.m. time slot. Similarly, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” dropped to a 0.32 from its previous 0.37, also on NBC.

On CBS, “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” fell from a 0.47 to a 0.36, which resulted in ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” rising above it with a 0.41, despite also dropping slightly from its previous 0.42. In addition, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” dropped one-hundredth of a point from a 0.22 to a 0.21 this week.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” held steady with a 0.19 for the second week in a row. Meanwhile, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” scored a 0.30, following a week of preempted ratings previously.

Here are the late-night numbers for August 21-25, 2017:
