[via press release from NBC]

JIMMY FALLON SCORES HIS HIGHEST 18-49 RATING FOR A WEEK WITHOUT A MAJOR NFL BOOST IN 9 MONTHS & MOST-WATCHED IN 10 MONTHS

Excluding NFL Weeks, Fallon Generates His Biggest 18-49 and Total-Viewer Margins Yet Over a Week of Colbert Originals

For the Late-Night Week of Dec. 14-18, Seth Meyers Pulls Within 0.04 of Colbert and 0.03 of Kimmel, Despite Starting an Hour Later

NEW YORK - Dec. 24, 2015 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" has dominated the late-night ratings week of Dec. 14-18, scoring a 1.07 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.930 million viewers overall, making this "Tonight's" best week with no NFL boost since early March in 18-49 and his most-watched non-NFL week since mid-February.

Excluding Thanksgiving week and Labor Day week, both of which included significant boosts from Thursday primetime NFL coverage, it was Fallon's strongest week in 18-49 since March 2-6 (1.10) and his best week in total viewers since Feb. 16-20 (4.233 million persons).

"Tonight's" strong week was paced by its Monday and Tuesday telecasts (1.16 and 1.17 in 18-49, respectively), both following finale-week "Voice" telecasts. Monday also included the high-rated "Adele Live in New York City" from 10-11 p.m. and Tuesday featured the 9-11 p.m. "Voice" finale. Monday's "Tonight" guests included Tina Fey and Dane DeHaan and Tuesday's telecast featured Mark Wahlberg and Bill Burr.

Fallon's Dec. 14-18 margins over CBS's "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" were his largest yet versus "Colbert" originals during non-NFL weeks. "Tonight" topped "late Show" last week by a +91% margin in 18-49 (1.07 vs. 0.56) and +1.460 million viewers overall (3.930 million vs. 2.470 million).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" earned a 0.52 in 18-49 to pull within 0.04 of a rating point of the 0.56 of "Colbert" and within 0.03 of the 0.55 for ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," despite Meyers' start time one hour later than Colbert's and Kimmel's.

In total viewers, Meyers beat CBS's "Late Late Show with James Corden" head to head by 555,000 viewers (1.729 million vs. 1.175 million), his biggest margin over "Late Late Show" excluding NFL weeks so far this season. Over the last four weeks, Meyers has delivered his four biggest total-viewer margins of the season over Corden.
