The week of June 17 saw “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” return to the top of the late-night ratings, despite taking a small hit.

The NBC title led the week with a 0.37 average rating in adults 18-49, down three-hundredths of a point from the 0.40 it scored the week before. Meanwhile, without the help of the NBA finals, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” predictably dropped from a 0.50 to a 0.35.

“Kimmel” still managed to beat CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” though, which posted a 0.32, just barely up from its previous 0.31. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” similarly ticked up from a 0.21 to a 0.22, and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” stayed even with another 0.17.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (0.19) rose four-hundredths of a point week-to-week, while TBS’ “Conan” (0.16) took the week off.

Here are the late-night numbers for June 17-21, 2019:
