“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” took a major hit in the late-night ratings for the week of Sept. 10.

After hitting a six-month high the week before, the NBC series fell from a 0.58 to a 0.46 rating in adults 18-49, and just barely led the 11:35 p.m. time slot in the measure. Also on NBC, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” experienced a similarly noticeable ratings decline, falling from a 0.35 to a 0.28.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” managed to tick up six-hundredths of a point from its previous 0.39 to a 0.45 this time around, while ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” was down four-hundredths of a point to a 0.33. “”The Late Late Show with James Corden” maintained its previous 0.22 for the second week in a row.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” (0.10) remained on hiatus, and as a result, stayed low. Meanwhile, Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” was steady with another 0.22.

Here are the late-night numbers for Sept. 10-14, 2018:


Note: Sept. 14’s “Tonight,” “Kimmel,” “Late Night” and “Late Late Show” were encores and the “Tonight” rebroadcast was excluded from these averages. Sept. 14’s “Last Call” was preempted.
