May 28-June 1, 2018 was an unusually quiet week in the late-night ratings, as all the NBC and CBS shows took the week off. As a result, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was able to climb to the top of the 11:35 p.m. time slot with a 0.55 rating in adults 18-49, up significantly from its previous 0.37. “Kimmel” experienced the uptick despite taking Monday off for the Memorial Day holiday (excluded from these averages), but also was delayed by a high-rated NBA overrun on Thursday night.

Also on ABC, “Nightline” ticked up six-tenths from 0.24 to a 0.30. Meanwhile, in cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” returned from a week off and doubled its previous 0.14 rating to a 0.28 this time around. TBS’ “Conan,” however, took the week off and therefore, held steady with a 0.12 for the second week in a row.

Here are the late-night numbers for May 28-June 1, 2018:
