March 19-23, 2018 proved to be a fairly quiet week in the late-night ratings, starting with NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” which was able to maintain the same 0.58 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row. Meanwhile, also on NBC, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” only suffered a minor hit and fell one-hundredth of a point from its previous 0.34 to a 0.33 this time around.

After a couple weeks of low ratings for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” however, the CBS series ticked up notably from a 0.43 to a 0.46. This put “Colbert” above ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” once again, which scored just one-hundredth less with a 0.45. Meanwhile, CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” ticked up two-hundredths of a point from a 0.24 to a 0.26.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” similarly rose from a 0.22 to a 0.24. After taking a hit the week before as well, TBS’ “Conan” rose just slightly from a 0.15 to a 0.16.

Here are the late-night numbers for March 19-23, 2018:
