It was another quiet week in the late-night ratings.

“The Tonight Starring Jimmy Fallon” (0.30), “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (0.28), “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (0.26), “Late Night with Seth Meyers” (0.18), and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.16) all stayed on hiatus, and scored another string of predictably low ratings in the adults 18-49 demo, with only a few shows experiencing some small upticks or downticks week-to-week.

As a result, ABC’s “Nightline” led the 12:35 a.m. time slot yet again, averaging the same 0.20 rating that it has the previous four weeks. Meanwhile, in cable, TBS’ “Conan” managed to tick up from its previous 0.11 to a 0.14. Comedy Central’s “Lights Out with David Spade” and “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” were both preempted.

Here are the late-night numbers for Aug. 26-30, 2019:
