Meanwhile, both of it’s 11:35 p.m. competitors, CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” were able to tick up two-tenths from their previous ratings to 0.42 and 0.50s this time around, respectively. Elsewhere, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” dipped one-tenth from a 0.29 to a 0.28, and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” maintained a 0.23 for the second week in a row.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” took the week off and scored a 0.15, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” raked in a 0.24.
