CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” took a smaller hit than the NBC shows, but still slipped a hundredth to a 0.39. ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” posted a 0.32, down from the 0.37 it had scored the week before, while “The Late Late Show with James Corden” dipped from a 0.20 to a 0.19.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (0.20) dropped four-hundredths of a point, and TBS’ “Conan” returned from hiatus with a 0.14.
