NBC's TONIGHT SHOW Encores Viritually Match 'Kimmel' Originals in 18-49 Demo

A week of encore telecasts of THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON has virutally equaled original episodes of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" for the ratings week of Oct. 16-20 in the key late-night demographic of adults 18-49, according to "live plus same day" results from Nielsen Media Research.

At 12:35 a.m. ET, rebroadcasts of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" finished the week #1 in the timeslot versus CBS' encores of "The Late Late Show with James Corden" in adults 18-49, adults 18-34 (tie) and adults 25-54, and in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30 to 1 a.m. ET, "Late Night" beat ABC's "Nightline" in those key measures.
