It was an up week in the late-night ratings for NBC.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” stayed on the rise, ticking up from its previous 0.47 to a 0.51 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” managed a similar, if smaller, uptick – rising one-hundredth of a point to a 0.30. Both NBC series won their respective time slots in the demo.

“Tonight” beat its 11:35 p.m. competitors, including ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” which returned from a week off and predictably climbed up from a low 0.27 to a 0.38 this time around. Meanwhile, CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (0.29) and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.18) both took the week off.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” ticked up another hundredth of a point to a 0.22, while TBS’ “Conan” returned from a break with a 0.19.

Here are the late-night numbers for Feb. 25 – March 1, 2019:
