“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” took a minor hit in the late-night ratings for the week of August 6. The NBC series fell one-hundredth of a point from its previous 0.45 to a 0.44 rating in adults 18-49, but still led the 11:35 p.m. time slot in the demographic. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” was also down from a 0.29 to a 0.27 this time around.

It was a different story for CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” though, which ticked up four-hundredths of a point to a 0.40. Also on CBS, “Late Late Show with James Corden” returned from a week off and similarly climbed up from a 0.18 to a 0.21. ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (0.39) was also up from what it had scored the week before.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” (0.09) stayed on hiatus, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” maintained a 0.22 for the second week in a row.

Here are the late-night numbers for August 6-10, 2018:
