It was a predictably quiet week in the late-night ratings. With the 4th of July holiday, every major cable and broadcast late-night show took the week off, resulting in low numbers across the board.
“The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” maintained its place atop the 11:35 p.m. time slot with a 0.42 rating in adults 18-49, down six-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.48. But while “Tonight” won the week in the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” led in total viewers with 2.06.
Here are the late-night numbers for July 2-6, 2018:
Notes: Wednesday’s ABC and CBS programs were excluded due to the July 4 holiday.
