March 26-30, 2018 was another quiet week in the late-night ratings. NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” took the week off, which predictably resulted in the series falling from its previous 0.58 to a 0.45 rating in adults 18-49. The series did just barely maintain its place at the top of the 11:35 p.m. time slot though. Meanwhile, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” also took the entire week off, and therefore, fell from a 0.33 to a 0.26.
Similarly, CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” dropped one-hundredth of a point from its previous 0.46 to a 0.45 this time around, while ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” — which was also in reruns — fell from a 0.45 to a 0.39. “The Late Late Show with James Corden” fell back down to a 0.24 this week as well, also on CBS.
In cable, the ratings Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” continued to rise for the second week in a row, with the series ticking up from its previous 0.24 to a 0.27. On TBS, “Conan” managed to climb four-hundredths of a point to a 0.20.
