March 4-8 ended up being a quiet week in the late-night ratings. NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers” both took the week off, resulting in predictably low 0.43 and 0.27 ratings in adults 18-49. The two shows did, however, still lead their respective time slots in the demo.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” returned from break, and as a result, climbed back up from a 0.29 to a 0.40. “The Late Late Show with James Corden” experienced a similar uptick with its return from hiatus, posting a 0.22 rating, up from both its previous 0.18 and the 0.21 it had the week before that. Meanwhile, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” ticked down two-hundredths of a point to a 0.36.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” slipped from a 0.19 to a 0.16, and Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (0.18) took the week off.

Here are the late-night numbers for March 4-8, 2019:
