"Late Night" Generates Its Top-Rated Week, Excluding NFL Lead-Ins, In Seven Months

NEW YORK - Oct. 5, 2016 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" have scored dominant wins for the late-night ratings week of Sept. 26-30, outrating their ABC and CBS time-slot competition in every key measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

"Tonight's" week was highlighted by Monday's telecast, the night of a Presidential Debate, when Fallon's guests were Samuel L. Jackson and Gina Rodriguez. Monday's 1.06 rating in adults 18-49 was the show's highest, excluding nights with NFL or Olympic lead-ins, in nearly four months (since President Obama's appearance on Thursday, June 9, 1.12).

Meyers scored his top weekly 18-49 and total-viewer averages (0.47 rating in 18-49, 1.576 million viewers overall), excluding weeks with NFL lead-ins, in seven months (since the week of Feb. 29-March 4, 0.48 in 18-49, 1.644 million viewers overall). Monday's live post-debate edition was Meyers' top-rated telecast (0.56), excluding NFL nights, in eight months (since Friday, Jan. 22, 0.62 with an encore the night of Winter Storm Jonas on the East Coast).

At 1:35 a.m. ET, "Last Call with Carson Daly" (0.30 in 18-49, 917,000 viewers overall) equaled its top-rated week in 18-49, excluding NFL nights, in eight months (since Jan. 18-22, 0.32) and most-watched non-NFL week in seven months (since Feb. 29-March 4, 936,000).
