After taking a week off, “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” returned for the week of March 13-17, 2017, rising from its previous 0.62 to a 0.75 rating in adults 18-49. This was a nine-week high for the NBC series, which predictably kept it on top in the 11:35 p.m. time slot. Similarly, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” managed to tick up from a 0.35 to a 0.39.
CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” dropped slightly from a 0.55 to a 0.54, but it maintained its total-viewer lead for the seventh straight week. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” held steady with a 0.49 for the second week in a row on ABC. After managing to rise to the top of the 12:35 a.m. time slot in the previous week, though, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” fell noticeably from a 0.35 to a 0.29.
In cable, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” continued to fall from a 0.32 to a 0.31 on Comedy Central, while “Conan” also dipped three-hundredths of a point from a 0.27 to a 0.24.
Here are the late-night numbers for March 13-17, 2017:
Note: CBS programs on March 16 and 17 were excluded after being delayed by a NCAA overrun. “Kimmel,” “Late Night,” and “Late Late Show” all aired encores on March 17 as well.
