It was another up week in the late-night ratings for NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” which rose two-hundredths of a point from a 0.50 to a 0.52 rating in adults 18-49. Similarly, CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” was able to tick up from its previous 0.42 to a 0.43 this time around. Meanwhile, after taking a hit the week before, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” climbed up one-hundredth of a point to a 0.29.
On ABC, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was able to tick back up from its previous 0.35 to a 0.37. Unlike many of the other late-night series this week, though, CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” fell noticeably to a 0.21 this week, from a 0.23.
In cable, TBS’ “Conan” returned from a week off and ticked down three-hundredths of a point from a 0.15 to a 0.12, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (0.14) and “The Opposition” (0.7) ran a week of encores and predictably dropped in the ratings.
Here are the late-night numbers for May 21-25, 2018:
Notes: May 25’s “Kimmel,” “Late Night” and “Last Call” were encores. Also on May 25, CBS ran re-titled encores, which are excluded from these averages.
