It was a quiet week in the late-night ratings from May 29-June 2, 2017, with many of the shows taking the week off to air encore episodes. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” still landed on top in the 11:35 p.m. time slot, despite taking the week off though, falling just slightly from its previous 0.65 to a 0.63 rating in adults 18-49. Also on NBC, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” actually rose one-hundredth of a point from a 0.32 to a 0.33.
CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” took the biggest hit by the week off, dropping from its previous 0.48 to a 0.34 this time around. “The Late Late Show with James Corden” also fell from a 0.28 to a 0.21 on CBS. But like “Meyers,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” actually ticked up from a 0.46 to a 0.62, despite also only airing encore episodes throughout the week.
In cable, “Conan” also took the week off, scoring a 0.19 as a result. However, unlike almost every other late-night show, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” returned from a week off previously, rising from a 0.17 to a 0.36 rating this week.
