Several shows took the week of April 22 off, resulting in predictable drops in the late-night ratings. NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” was one of the week’s only shows to not go on hiatus, and managed to climb up three-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.42 to a 0.45 rating in adults 18-49. “Fallon’s” 0.45 and 2.31 million viewer averages both marked eight-week highs for the NBC series.

Also on NBC, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” took the week off, but held steady with another 0.25. However, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (0.27), CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (0.30), and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.17) all took the week off, and posted predictably low ratings.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” rebounded from the 0.12 it had scored the week before, back up to a 0.14, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” returned from a week off with a 0.17.
