As several other late-night shows took the week off, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” experienced a minor uptick in the ratings for the week of Oct. 14.

The ABC series averaged a 0.33 rating in the adults 18-49 demo, up one-hundredth of a point from its 0.32 average the week before. Elsewhere, CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.18) and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (0.29) both took the week off, and as a result, experienced predictable drops week-to-week.

It was a similar story for NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (0.34), “Late Night with Seth Meyers” (0.20), and “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” (0.14), as all three shows aired only encores throughout the week and slipped from their previous averages.

In cable, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (0.18) fell one-hundredth of a point week-to-week, as did “Lights Out with David Spade” (0.10). Meanwhile, TBS’ “Conan” (0.14) took yet another week off.

Here are the late-night numbers for Oct. 14-18, 2019:


Notes: “Tonight” ran one original last week on Sunday night, following a primetime NFL telecast. It is excluded from these averages. Oct. 18’s “Kimmel” was also a rebroadcast.
