Through the first 37 weeks of the 2011-12 broadcast year, "Tonight" has increased its total-viewer margin over "Late Show" to 16 percent (3.695 million vs. 3.196 million), up from the year-ago season-to-date advantage of 10 percent. Jimmy Fallon has also established a total-viewer lead over "Late Late Show" this season of 16 percent (1.763 million vs. 1.521 million), up from last year's advantage of 1 percent.
