UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - July 25, 2013 - NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" dominated their broadcast time-period competition for the week of July 15-19.

Fallon also attracted more 18-49 viewers than ABC's week of "Kimmel" encores (663,000 vs. 642,000), the first time "Late Night" has out-delivered Kimmel in the category since the ABC series moved to an 11:35 start time in January. Fallon also out-delivered Letterman and the Kimmel rebroadcasts in men and women 18-49 and adults, men and women 18-34.

Note that CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" aired an encore on Friday and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" was in rebroadcasts through the week.

Versus the same week last year, Leno was up 12% in viewers 18-49 (to 1.038 million from 925,000) and up 15% in total viewers (3.512 million vs. 3.294 million). Fallon grew versus one year ago by 12% in viewers 18-49 (663,000 vs. 592,000) and 9% in total viewers (1.709 million vs. 1.573 million).

Fallon generated a six-week high in viewers 18-49, best since the week of June 3-7, and in total viewers it was his biggest audience in four weeks, since June 17-21. Leno had his biggest overall viewer total in three weeks, since June 24-28.

At 1:35 a.m. ET, "Last Call with Carson Daly" generated its biggest overall audience (921,000) in five weeks (since June 10-14), and did it with a week of rebroadcasts.
