Nov. 20-24, 2017 proved to be a good week in the late-night ratings for “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” with the NBC series ticking up from its previous 0.60 to a 0.77 rating in adults 18-49 this time around. The increase gave the series its biggest margin of victory so far this season. Meanwhile, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” also experienced a noticeable tick up from a 0.35 to a 0.42, also on NBC.

Additionally, CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” rose five-hundredths of a point from a 0.47 to a 0.52, staying above ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which took the week off and fell from its previous 0.46 to a 0.45. On CBS, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” managed to continue its recent uptick streak as well, rising from a 0.29 to a 0.31.

In cable, “Conan,” “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” and “The Opposition” all took the week off, resulting in predictable drops for all of the series, except for “Conan,” which maintained a 0.15.

Here are the late-night numbers for Nov. 20-24, 2017:
