In the late-night ratings for the week of Oct. 16-20, 2017, NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” took the week off and as a result, fell from its previous 0.61 rating to a 0.49 in adults 18-49 this time around. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” also took the week off, and predictably, dropped four-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.35 to a 0.31. This resulted in both shows falling from the top spots in their respective time slots.

Especially with ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” ticking back up from a 0.43 to a 0.50 once again, while CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” also took the week off and dropped in the ratings from its previous 0.48 to a 0.41. Interestingly, though, despite “The Late Late Show with James Corden” airing a week of encores as well, the CBS late-night series actually ticked up one-hundredth of a point from a 0.27 to a 0.28.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” returned from a week hiatus and rose from its previous 0.12 to a 0.22. TBS’ “Conan,” however, did not return, although it did still tick up from a 0.12 to a 0.15.

Here are the late-night numbers for Oct. 16-20, 2017:
