Last week proved to be a quiet week in the late-night ratings, starting with NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” which scored the same 0.49 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row. Meanwhile, also on NBC, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” managed to tick up one-hundredth of a point from its previous 0.28 to a 0.29 this time around.

CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” similarly rose from a 0.39 to a 0.41, while ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” fell to a 0.36 from a 0.38. After taking a minor hit the previous week as well, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” dropped another hundredth of a point to a 0.22.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” took the week off and, as a result, dropped to a 0.13. Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” ticked down from a 0.24 to a 0.22. “The Opposition with Jordan Klepper” also fell to a 0.10.
