With an encore week of "Best Of - Staff Picks" episodes, "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" has finished #1 for the late-night ratings week of May 25-29 head to head versus the ABC and CBS competition in the key adult 18-49 demographic, according to "live plus same day" figures from Nielsen Media Research.

In their head to head half-hour from 11:30 p.m.-midnight ET in adults 18-49, the "Tonight" encores outrated ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (which included in its averages three originals and one rebroadcast, 0.38 vs. 0.34), as well as in adults 25-54 (0.55 vs. 0.49) and most other key demographics.

Versus rebroadcasts of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" from 11:35 p.m. to 12:35 a.m. ET, "Tonight" prevailed in 10 of 10 key ratings categories, averaging a 0.33 in adults 18-49 versus Colbert's 0.21. In adults 25-54, it was a 0.50 for Fallon and a 0.33 for Colbert."

The 0.33 rating equals "Tonight's" best in five weeks (since a 0.36 for the week of April 20-24). Last week's 1.886 million viewers is also a "Tonight" high since April 20-24 (1.987 million).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, an encore week of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" finished #1 versus rebroadcasts of "The Late Late Show with James Corden" in 10 of 10 key measures - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers (including a tie in men 18-34).
