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.

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.
