NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” held steady in the late-night ratings for the week of July 23, grabbing the same 0.45 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row. The same could not be said for “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” also on NBC, which fell four-hundredths of a point from a 0.28 to a 0.24.

Similarly, CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” was down noticeably from its previous 0.41 to a 0.37. ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” ticked down as well, falling one-hundredth of a point to a 0.34. After spending several weeks on hiatus, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” returned with a 0.19, putting it at the bottom of the 12:35 a.m. time slot in the demographic.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” rose nine-hundredths of a point to a 0.26. TBS’ “Conan” (0.12) stayed on hiatus, and as a result, stayed predictably low.

Here are the late-night numbers for July 23-27, 2018:
