"THE TONIGHT SHOW" AND "LATE NIGHT" DOMINATE TIMESLOT COMPETITION IN FOURTH QUARTER

Fallon Wins in All Key Measures While Meyers Stretches Lead in 18-49 Over Corden

NEW YORK - Jan. 4, 2016 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" has delivered a dominant ratings win for the fourth quarter of 2015, outscoring CBS's "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in every key measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

In 2014 and 2015, Fallon has delivered "Tonight's" two highest-rated fourth quarters in adults 18-49 since 2008. His 1.10 rating this year and 1.17 rating during the year-ago quarter are "Tonight's" two best in a fourth quarter since 2008 (1.34).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" also dominated the quarter, stretching his margin over CBS's "Late Late Show with James Corden" to +50% in adults 18-49 (with a 0.51 rating versus a 0.34), up from last year's +46% (0.51 vs. 0.35). Meyers also increased his advantage over ABC's "Nightline" in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. ET to +47% (0.56 vs. 0.38 for that half-hour), up from the year-ago +39% (0.57 vs. 0.41).

Meyers retained 100% of his year-ago 18-49 rating for the fourth quarter (0.51 vs. 0.51) and grew +4% in total viewers (1.658 million vs. 1.588 million), +3% in adults 25-54 (0.65 vs. 0.63) and +11% in men 25-54 (0.61 vs. 0.55).

At 1:35 a.m. ET, "Last Call with Carson Daly" generated a +4% increase in total viewers versus the fourth quarter of 2015 (921,000 vs. 888,000) and was also up +3% in adults 25-54 (0.39 vs. 0.38) and +9% in men 25-54 (0.36 vs. 0.33).

Meyers concluded the fourth quarter with a 0.45 rating for encore telecasts during the holiday week of Dec. 21-25 (all Thursday and Friday telecasts were preempted or excluded), to tie that week's rebroadcasts of "Colbert" (0.45) and finish within 0.04 of a point of the week's "Kimmel" encores (0.49), despite Meyers' start time one hour later.
