It was another slow week in the late-night ratings, as many of the broadcast shows remained on hiatus. This included “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” and “Last Call with Carson Daily,” all of which scored predictably low numbers as a result.

On ABC, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” returned from a week off and ticked up four-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.32 to a 0.36 this time around. CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” also came back up from a 0.29 to a 0.34.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” was back on the air and maintained a 0.15 for the second week in a row, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” was preempted.

Here are the late-night numbers for July 9-15, 2018:


Notes: “Kimmel” was in originals July 9 – 14, with an encore Friday.
