JIMMY FALLON AND SETH MEYERS DELIVER DECISIVE FEBRUARY SWEEP WINS

'Tonight' and 'Late Night' Beat Their ABC and CBS Time-Slot Rivals in All Key Measures

Fallon's Sweep Margins Are +78% vs. 'Kimmel' and +115% vs. 'Late Show' in 18-49

NEW YORK - March 5, 2015 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" have decisively won the late-night 2015 February sweep, outdelivering their ABC and CBS time-period rivals in all key ratings measures - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

For the February sweep, "Fallon's" 1.14 rating in adults 18-49 generated a winning margin of +78% over "Kimmel"(0.64) and +115% versus "Letterman" (0.53).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, a 0.51 rating in 18-49 for "Late Night with Seth Meyers" delivered a +70% advantage over CBS's "Late Late Show" (0.30). In their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m., "Late Night" beat ABC's "Nightline" by a +39% margin (0.57 that half-hour vs. "Nightline's" 0.41).

For the Jan. 29-Feb. 25 sweep period, Fallon's 1.14 rating in 18-49 was competitive with the combined 1.17 of Kimmel and Letterman; Meyers nearly matched Letterman (0.51 vs. 0.53), despite running an hour later; and "Last Call with Carson Daly" (0.29) nearly equaled "Late Late Show" (0.30), despite starting an hour later.

Fallon's 1.14 is tied for "Tonight's" second best 18-49 rating for any sweep month since May 2009, trailing over that span only February 2014, the month Fallon took over "Tonight" hosting duties, and tying over that span the May 2014 sweep.

The February sweep ended during the week of Feb. 23-27, during which Fallon and Meyers outscored their respective ABC and CBS time-period competition in all key ratings measures.
