“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” took the week off from Nov. 6-10, 2017 following the unfortunate passing of Fallon’s mother, resulting in it taking a minor hit in the late-night ratings. The NBC series fell two-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.55 to a 0.53 rating in adults 18-49 but stayed on top in the 11:35 p.m. time slot in that demographic. Also on NBC, though, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” held steady with a 0.35 for the second week in a row.

On ABC, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” rose five-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.44 to a 0.49 this time around. This resulted in the series rising above “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” despite the CBS series also managing to rise from a 0.46 to a 0.48 on the network. Meanwhile, CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” held steady with a 0.27 once again.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” rose six-hundredths of a point from a 0.18 to a 0.24, while “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” fell one-hundredth of a point from its previous 0.25, tying “Conan” with a 0.24 as well.

Here are the late-night numbers for Nov. 6-10, 2017:
