“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” generated a small uptick in the late-night ratings, from its previous 0.46 to a 0.47 rating in adults 18-49. The NBC series won its 11:35 p.m. time slot yet again, as CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” fell another hundredth of a point to a 0.42, and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” took the week off, resulting in a predictable ratings drop.

In addition, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” maintained a 0.29 for the second week in a row, while “The Late Late Show with James Corden” posted a 0.21, down two-hundredths of a point from the 0.23 it had scored the week before.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” managed to recover slightly from its hit the week before, and ticked up from a 0.19 to a 0.21. TBS’ “Conan” took the week off, and predictably fell from a 0.19 to a 0.14.

Here are the late-night numbers for Feb. 18-22, 2019:


Notes: Feb. 22’s “Late Night,” “Late Late Show” and “Last Call” were encores. Feb. 18’s ABC telecasts are excluded from these averages.
