Dec. 4-8, 2017 proved to be a fairly down week for most of the shows in the late-night ratings, beginning with “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” dropping one-hundredth of a point from its previous 0.71 to a 0.70 rating in adults 18-49. As usual, though, it maintained its place above the competition in the 11:35 p.m. time slot. Similarly, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” dropped from a 0.42 to a 0.41 this time around, also on NBC.
On ABC, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” held steady with a 0.44 for the second week in a row, while CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” took a minor hit, dipping from a 0.50 to a 0.49. Unlike most of the other shows, however, CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” did manage to tick up two-hundredths of a point from a 0.28 to a 0.30.
In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” fell to a 0.24 from a 0.26 this week, while “Conan” dropped one-hundredth of a point from a 0.17 to a 0.16 on TBS.
Here are the late-night numbers for Dec. 4-8, 2017:
