After taking most of February off for the Winter Olympics, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” returned with new episodes for the week of Feb. 26 – March 2, 2018, and scored a 0.63 rating in adults 18-49. This was four-hundredths of a point higher than the 0.59 that “Fallon” had scored the week before its hiatus. With its return last week as well, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” was able to maintain its previous 0.36 rating once again, also on NBC.
ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” took the week off, which resulted in it scoring a low 0.39. Despite this, CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” only performed slightly better with a 0.43 rating. Meanwhile, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” raked in a 0.24.
In cable, TBS’ “Conan” performed fairly well for itself with a 0.19, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” scored a 0.26.
