NBC's TONIGHT SHOW Wins Late-Night Ratings Week in Every Key Demo

NBC's TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON has won the late-night ratings week of June 26-30 versus its ABC and CBS time-period competition in every key demographic - adults, men and women 18-34; adults, men and women 18-49; and adults, men and women 25-54, according to "live plus same day" results from Nielsen Media Research.

For the week, "Tonight" averaged a 0.63 rating in adults 18-49, to win the week over CBS' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" (0.41) by a +54% margin.

Over the past three weeks, "Tonight" has delivered its three biggest 18-49 margins over original weeks of the "Late Show" since January, with a +58% margin for the week of June 12-16 (0.68 vs. 0.43), a +62% win for the week of June 19-23 (0.68 vs. 0.42) and last week's +54% advantage. All three of those margins top every other "Tonight" advantage versus a week of Colbert originals since the week of Jan. 9-13.

At 12:35 a.m. ET last week, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" finished #1 in the timeslot versus CBS' rebroadcast week of "The Late Late Show with James Corden" in all key measures, and in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30 to 1 a.m. ET, Meyers also beat ABC's "Nightline" in every key category.
