"THE TONIGHT SHOW" HANDILY OUTPERFORMS ABC, CBS TIMESLOT COMPETITION FOR WEEK OF DEC. 8-12

Fallon Delivers Winning Margins in 18-49, All Other Key Ratings Demos and Total Viewers

NEW YORK - Dec. 18, 2014 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" has dominated the late-night week of Dec. 8-12, beating ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" all five nights in both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

"The Tonight Show" also delivered bigger audiences than both rival shows in every key ratings category - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

Fallon's 1.03 rating in 18-49 for the week generated an +81% advantage over Kimmel (0.57) and an +87% margin over Letterman (0.55). Note that "Kimmel" was in rebroadcast on Friday.

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" matched the 18-49 rating of Letterman (0.55 each), despite starting an hour later. Meyers topped Letterman for the week in men 18-49 and adults, men and women 18-34.

In the 12:35 a.m. ET hour, Meyers outscored CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" in every key ratings measure and also topped ABC's "Nightline" in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. in all key categories.
