In the week of Oct. 10-14, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” continued to show its dominance over the 11:35 p.m. time slot, despite dipping from its previous 0.82 to a 0.80 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. Also on NBC, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” managed to tick up from a 0.43 to a 0.45.

Interestingly, despite having a week of repeats, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” also experienced a minor increase, ticking up from a 0.32 to a 0.34, beating ABC’s “Nightline,” which fell from a 0.34 to a 0.32. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” scored lower than “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” once again, since even though the latter aired a week of repeats as well, it managed to maintain a 0.51 for the second week in a row.

In cable, a week of “Conan” repeats scored a 0.25 on TBS, while “The Daily Show” grabbed a 0.34 on Comedy Central.

Here are the late-night numbers for October 10-14, 2016.


Note: All CBS programs on Oct. 13 are excluded due to an NFL overrun. “Kimmel,” “Late Night,” and “Last Call” all aired encores on Oct. 14 as well.
