It was a down week for several shows in the late-night ratings.

CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” remained the no. 1 late-night show for the week of July 22, despite falling from a 0.33 to a 0.30 average rating in adults 18-49. NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” which tied for second place in the demo, similarly fell from its previous 0.32 to a 0.29. ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” posted a 0.29 average as well, but was actually up one-hundredth of a point from the 0.28 it averaged the week before.

“Late Night with Seth Meyers” dropped from a 0.21 to a 0.18, but still led the 12:35 a.m. time slot in the demo. “Nightline” placed second with a 0.17, down from its previous 0.18, while “The Late Late Show with James Corden” returned from hiatus, and ticked up from a 0.15 to a 0.16.

In cable, the ratings for Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” were preempted, and TBS’ “Conan” (0.16) took another week off.
