April 9-13, 2018 was an up week in the late-night ratings for ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden,’ after returning from a week off. The CBS series rose five-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.20 to a 0.25 rating in adults 18-49. Also on CBS, it was a similar story with “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which returned to a 0.47, significantly higher than the 0.32 it had scored while it was on hiatus.

Despite “Colbert’s” uptick in the ratings, though, NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” stayed above its 11:35 p.m. time slot competition, after maintaining a 0.53 for the second week in a row. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” also held steady with another 0.31 as well. On ABC, “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” however, fell four-hundredths of a point from a 0.46 to a 0.42.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (0.23), “The Opposition” (0.11), and TBS’ “Conan” (0.16) all returned up from their previous ratings.

Here are the late-night numbers for April 9-13, 2018:


Notes: April 13’s “Kimmel,” “Late Night,” “Late Late Show” and “Last Call” were encores. The same night’s “Late Show” was delayed by news coverage and was also excluded.
