It was a quiet week in the late-night ratings for August 20-24, 2018, as every major late-night show took the week off. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” led the week, despite falling noticeably from its previous 0.48 to a 0.42 rating in adults 18-49. The NBC series also posted a rare win in total viewers with 1.91 million , beating both of its 11:35 p.m. competitors, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (0.28, 1.86 million) and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (0.31, 1.69 million).

In the 12:35 p.m. time slot, things remained status quo with “Late Night with Seth Meyers” (0.25, -0.01) leading both “Nightline” (0.22, -0.01) and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.16, -0.06).

In cable, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” took the week off as well, while “Conan” returned and tied it in the 18-49 demo with matching 0.13s, though, Monday night’s “Daily Show” broadcast was preempted.

Here are the late-night numbers for August 20-24, 2018:
