NEW YORK - March 3, 2016 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" have dominated the late-night ratings week of Feb. 22-26, defeating their ABC and CBS time-period competition in every key measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

At 12:35 a.m. ET for the week, Meyers pulled within 0.02 of a rating point of CBS's Colbert in 18-49 (0.44 vs. 0.46), despite starting an hour later. And at 1:35 a.m. ET, "Last Call with Carson Daly" finished within 0.01 of CBS's "Late Late Show with James Corden" in 18-49 (0.28 vs. 0.29), despite a start time of one hour later.

Meyers delivered a +52% margin in 18-49 over "Late Late Show" (0.44 vs. 0.29, doubling his +26% lead of the prior week) and generated a +47% advantage over ABC's "Nightline" (0.50 vs. 0.34 in their 12:30-1 a.m. head-to-head half-hour).
