‘THE TONIGHT SHOW’ AND ‘LATE NIGHT’ DOMINATE RATINGS RACE VERSUS TIMESLOT COMPETITION FOR WEEK OF MARCH 30-APRIL 3

Fallon Bests Kimmel, Letterman While Meyers Outperforms Second Week of Corden

NEW YORK — April 9, 2015 — “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers” have dominated late-night ratings for the week of March 30-April 3, outscoring their ABC and CBS time-period competition in every key measure — adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

Fallon earned a 0.96 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.706 million viewers overall, his top 18-49 and total-viewer results since the week of March 2-6 (1.10 in 18-49, 3.874 million). Meyers’ 1.511 million viewers overall represents his biggest overall audience since that same week (1.614 million).

Meyers’ 0.43 rating in adults 18-49 outscored week two of CBS’s “Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.30) by a +43% margin, up from a +16% edge the prior week (when Corden premiered on Monday and excluded Thursday and Friday delayed encores from his averages). In total viewers, Meyers won the hour last week by a +26% margin (1.511 million vs. 1.201 million) after Corden had prevailed by +6% during his debut week.

In the 11:35 p.m. ET hour, Fallon outdelivered ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” in all key measures. Meyers prevailed over Corden in the 12:35 a.m. hour in every key category and won his head-to-head 12:30-1 a.m. half-hour versus “Nightline” in each of those measures.
