Following its return from hiatus last week, NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” held steady with a 0.59 rating in adults 18-49 for the week of July 24-28, 2017. This was the same rating as what it had scored the week before and kept the NBC series on top in the 11:35 p.m. time slot. Meanwhile, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” took a minor hit, falling one-hundredth of a point from its previous 0.33 to a 0.32 this time around, also on NBC.

In addition, CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” rose one-hundredth from a 0.43 to a 0.44 in the week and managed to score the most total viewers of any late-night show once again with 2.96 million. But as “Jimmy Kimmel Live’s” hiatus on ABC went on, though, the series continued to fall, this time dropping four-hundredths of a point from a 0.37 to a 0.33.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” maintained a 0.29 for the second week in a row on the network, while TBS’ “Conan” took another week off, but still managed to tick up from a 0.12 to a 0.17.

Here are the late-night numbers for July 24-28, 2017:
