It was a relatively quiet week in the late-night ratings from Jan. 30 – Feb. 3, 2017. Despite ticking back up in the week before, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” took a noticeable hit, dropping from a 0.75 to a 0.67 rating in adults 18-49, one of the show’s lowest-rated weeks of the current season. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” also dropped on NBC, though less than “Fallon,” ticking down from a 0.39 to a 0.38.

On the flip side, “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” experienced a minor resurgence, increasing nine-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.39 to a 0.48. This effectively put it over ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (0.45) in the week. “The Late Late Show with James Corden” also managed to tick up from a 0.24 to a 0.30 on CBS.

In cable, both “Conan” (0.29) and “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (0.33) managed to maintain their previous respective ratings for the second week in a row.

Here are the late-night numbers for Jan. 30 – Feb. 3, 2017:


Note: “Late Night” and “Kimmel” both aired encores on Feb. 3.
