Jan. 22-26, 2018 ended up being a fairly down week for a couple of shows in the late-night ratings, including “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” which fell from its previous 0.66 to a 0.59 rating in adults 18-49. The NBC series did, however, still stay on top of the 11:35 p.m. time slot, despite its noticeable drop. Meanwhile, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” only fell one-hundredth of a point down to a 0.37 this time around, also on NBC.
Similarly, CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” fell six-hundredths of a point from a 0.50 to a 0.44. This allowed ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to rise above it in the time slot as well, even though “Kimmel” did also drop from its previous 0.46 to a 0.45.
In cable, TBS’ “Conan” took a minor hit in the ratings this week, falling three-hundredths of a point from a 0.18 to a 0.15, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” also fell to a 0.25.
