“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” returned to the top of the late-night ratings.

For the week of August 12, the NBC series averaged a 0.34 rating in adults 18-49, up three-hundredths of a point from the 0.31 it averaged the week before. As a result of its uptick, “Fallon” won the week in the 18-49 demo, beating ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (0.31) and CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (0.29), both of which took small hits week-to-week.

Similar to “Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers” rose from a 0.19 to a 0.21 rating, taking the top spot in the 12:35 a.m. time slot. Meanwhile, ABC’s “Nightline” held steady with its third straight 0.20, and CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.15) stayed even as well.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” held onto its previous 0.19, while “Lights Out with David Spade” ticked up from a 0.10 to a 0.11.
