On ABC, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” also took a hit, and dropped from a 0.39 to a 0.34. CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” however, scored a 0.45, up another three-hundredths of a point from the 0.42 it had scored the week before. The same could not be said for”The Late Late Show with James Corden,” which slipped from a 0.22 to a 0.21.
In cable, TBS’ “Conan” returned with its new half-hour format, and raked in a 0.17, up four-hundredths from the 0.13 it had posted on its final week before going on hiatus last year. Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” inched down from a 0.26 to a 0.23.
