Fallon's TONIGHT SHOW Bests Network Revivals, Myer's Encore Tops Letterman

Fallon's TONIGHT SHOW Bests Network Revivals, Myer's Encore Tops Letterman

"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" have scored dominant wins for the late-night ratings week of Aug. 18-22, with Fallon beating his broadcast competition in every key measure and Meyers encores winning in adults 18-49 versus both his time-period competition and CBS's first-run "Late Show with David Letterman," which starts an hour earlier than "Late Night."
Fallon averaged a 1.00 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.6 million viewers overall for the week and led the competition of CBS's "Late Show" and ABC's encores of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in all key categories - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers. Note that Letterman's Friday telecast, an encore, was delayed by an NFL overrun and is excluded from these averages.
At 12:35 a.m. ET, a 0.46 rating in adults 18-49 for Meyers' rebroadcasts topped a 0.42 for Letterman's originals. In the 12:35-1:35 a.m. time period, the "Late Night" encores also delivered bigger audiences than Ferguson's rebroadcasts in every key ratings measure. Additionally, they beat ABC's original "Nightline" in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. in all key categories. Ferguson's Friday telecast was excluded due to a football overrun.
At 1:35 a.m. ET, rebroadcasts of "Last Call with Carson Daly" out-rated CBS's "Late Late Show" encores (with a 0.26 rating vs. a 0.23). Versus the same week last year, "Last Call" was up +18% in 18-49 rating (to a 0.26 from a 0.22) and up +10% in total viewers (766,000 vs. 698,000).
