The week of May 20 boasted several small upticks in the late-night ratings.

“The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” may have lost the regular season to “Colbert,” but the NBC series did manage to tick up from its previous 0.41 to a 0.43 rating in adults 18-49. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” rose from a 0.24 to a 0.25 as well, and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (0.31) inched up two-hundredths of a point.

On CBS, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” posted its second straight 0.42, while  “The Late Late Show with James Corden” held steady with the same 0.21 that it scored the week before.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” returned from a week off with a 0.21, and TBS’ “Conan” similarly came back with a 0.18.

Here are the late-night numbers for May 20-24, 2019:
