The 1.11 is Fallon's highest 18-49 rating in five weeks, since averaging a 1.13 for the week of June 16-20.

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" outscored CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" (with a 0.51 rating vs. a 0.41) despite starting an hour later, and finished the week within 0.09 of a point of "Kimmel" (0.51 vs. 0.60).
