An encore week of THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON has taken the late-night ratings week of Aug. 28-Sept. 1 versus the rebroadcast time-period competition on ABC and CBS in every key measure - adults, men and women 18-34; adults, men and women 18-49; and adults, men and women 25-54, plus total viewers, according to "live plus same day" results from Nielsen Media Research.

In total viewers, Fallon's 2.112 million bested "Late Show's" 1.976 million by +136,000 viewers and "Kimmel's" 1.628 million by +484,000.

At 12:35 a.m. ET last week, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" encores outrated Colbert rebroadcasts in 18-49 (0.31 vs. 0.30), despite starting an hour later.

Meyers finished #1 in the timeslot versus CBS' rebroadcast week of "The Late Late Show with James Corden" in all key demographics, and in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30 to 1 a.m. ET, "Late Night" also beat ABC's "Nightline" originals in every key measure.
