“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” returned from hiatus, and rose to the top of the late-night ratings for the week of July 15.

The CBS series narrowly won the week in the adults 18-49 demo with a 0.33 average rating, predictably up from the low 0.21 it averaged the week before. NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” came second with a 0.32, while ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” took a hit week-to-week, falling from its previous 0.33 to a 0.28.

Additionally, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” beat its competition in the 12:35 a.m. time slot with a 0.21 rating. “Nightline” (0.18) followed closely behind, ticking down from a 0.20 to a 0.18. “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.15) stayed on hiatus.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” returned from break with a 0.19.
