"THE TONIGHT SHOW," "LATE NIGHT" HANDILY OUTPERFORM TIMESLOT COMPETITION FOR WEEK OF JAN. 20-24

Leno, Fallon Up Double-Digit Percentages in Every Key Ratings Category Versus a Year Ago

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Jan. 30, 2014 - "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" have dominated the broadcast competition for the week of Jan. 20-24.

Each program generated their second-biggest weeklong 18-49 audiences this season (1.249 million and 824,000 respectively), excluding the week of a high-rated NFL overrun. Fallon delivered his biggest weeklong overall audience (2.136 million), counting all weeks, in four years.

Versus the same week last year, Leno and Fallon were both up by double-digit percentages in every key ratings category. "The Tonight Show" was up 25% in viewers 18-49 (to 1.249 million from 999,000) and up 22% in total viewers (4.303 million vs. 3.529 million). "Late Night" was up 41% in 18-49 (924,000 vs. 585,000) and up 41% in total viewers (2.136 million vs. 1.515 million). The 2.136 million for Fallon is his highest since the week of Jan. 18-22, 2010 (2.162 million).

At 1:35 a.m. ET, "Last Call with Carson Daly" grew versus the same week last year by 35% in viewers 18-49 (444,000 vs. 329,000) and by 23% in total viewers (996,000 vs. 813,000).

Season to date, Leno and Fallon are delivering their strongest averages 18 weeks into a TV season in three years in 18-49 viewers. In total viewers, "Tonight" is at a five-year high and Fallon is delivering his top total-viewer average at 18 weeks in the five years he's been hosting "Late Night."

Versus the first 18 weeks of the year-ago season, Leno is up 8% in 18-49 viewers (with 1.139 million vs. 1.052 million) and up 9% in total viewers (3.876 million vs. 3.551 million). Fallon is up 18% in 18-49 viewers (802,000 vs. 678,000) so far this season and up 16% in total viewers (1.980 million vs. 1.705 million).

"Tonight" has now delivered bigger 18-49 audiences than "Late Show" for the last 62 weeks in a row and topped "Kimmel" for 51 of their 55 head-to-head weeks. In total viewers, Leno has out-delivered "Late Show" for 66 weeks in a row and "Kimmel" for 55 of 55 weeks.
