In adults 18-49, Jimmy Fallon's audience is 18 percent bigger than "Late Late Show's" (801,000 vs. 680,000) since March 1, in total viewers, the "Late Night" advantage is 1 percent (1.684 million vs. 1.662 million) and in adults 18-34, Jimmy's margin is 30 percent (336,000 vs. 259,000).

For the week at 1:35 a.m. ET, encore telecasts of "Last Call with Carson Daly" (0.4 rating in 18-49, 0.3 in 18-34) tied CBS's originals of "Late Late Show" in adult 18-49 and adult 18-34 rating and finished within a tenth of a point of ABC's mostly original "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in 18-49 and 18-34.
