After bringing in a 0.57 rating in adults 18-49 last week, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” grew a tick for the week of Feb. 8-12 with a 0.58 — the best it has done since the short Thanksgiving week last November. It was also the week’s No. 2 late-night talk show, besting CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” by 5 percent.

“The Tonight Show” rose from its previous 0.85 rating to a 0.9 this time around, while “The Late Show” also grew slightly from a 0.5 to a 0.55 thanks largely to a brief Super Bowl halo on Monday.

Meanwhile on cable, both “The Daily Show” and “The Nightly Show” increased from their previous ratings, and “Conan” was down week to week.

Here are the late-night numbers for Feb. 8-12, 2016.


Note: “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night,” “The Late Late Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call,” and “Late Show” all aired repeats on Feb. 12.
