It was a rerun-heavy week in Oct. 17-21, with “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and “Last Call with Carson Daly” all airing a week of repeats on NBC. “The Tonight Show” predictably fell from its previous 0.80 to a 0.72 rating in adults 18-49 due to the repeats, though it still landed on top in the 11:35 p.m. timeslot. Meanwhile, “Late Night” experienced a dip as well, from a 0.45 to a 0.37.
On the other hand, “THe Late Show with Stephen Colbert” returned from a week of repeats increasing from a 0.51 to a 0.6. Also on CBS, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” continued to perform well, increasing from a 0.34 to a 0.35, beating ABC’s “Nightline” once again, which scored a 0.33. In addition, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” experienced a minor increase from its previous 0.49 to a 0.5.
In cable, a second week of repeats from “Conan” resulted in a drop from a 0.25 to a 0.23, while “The Daily Show” continued to tick up, this time drawing a 0.35 on Comedy Central.
Here are the late-night numbers for Oct. 17-21, 2016.
Note: All CBS programs on Oct. 20 are excluded due to an NFL overrun. “Kimmel” meanwhile, aired an encore on Oct. 21 as well.
