"THE TONIGHT SHOW," "LATE NIGHT" DOMINATE BROADCAST TIMESLOT COMPETITION FOR WEEK OF SEPT. 8-12

Fallon Earns More Than Combined Kimmel and Letterman Rating in 18-49 Demo

NEW YORK - Sept. 18, 2014 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" have dominated the late-night week of Sept. 8-12.

Fallon outscored the combined 18-49 ratings of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," while Meyers topped Kimmel and Letterman despite starting an hour later.

Note that Wednesday's NBC and CBS results are excluded due to a delay for news coverage. CBS's Thursday shows were delayed by a high-rated NFL overrun but are included. Friday's "Kimmel" and "Late Night" were encores.

Fallon's 1.11 rating in adults 18-49 for the week topped the combined 1.08 of Kimmel (0.54) and Letterman (0.54). Meyers' 0.56 beat the 0.54s of Kimmel and Letterman in the earlier 11:35 p.m. hour, while outscoring CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (0.36) by a 56% margin head to head in the 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET hour.

Fallon and Meyers delivered bigger audiences than their ABC and CBS time-period competition in every key ratings measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

At 1:35 a.m. ET, rebroadcasts of "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.36 rating in adults 18-49, the show's top result in nearly six months (since the week of March 17-21, 0.37). The "Last Call" encores tied CBS's first-run "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and ABC's original "Nightline" in 18-49 rating (0.36 each), despite starting an hour later.
