JIMMY FALLON DELIVERS HIS TOP LOCAL-PEOPLE-METER RATING IN THE PAST YEAR, EQUALS HIS TWO-YEAR HIGH

SETH MEYERS AND CARSON DALY ALSO HIT SEASON HIGHS WITH THANKSGIVING NIGHT TELECASTS

STEELERS-COLTS NFL FOOTBALL DOMINATES PRIMETIME

Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers and Carson Daly have scored season-high ratings in metered-market households and adults 18-49 in the local people meters with Thanksgiving night telecasts that followed NBC Sports' primetime coverage of Pittsburgh Steelers-Indianapolis Colts NFL football.

Fallon generated his highest 18-49 rating in the local people meters (1.5) in the past year, since last Thanksgiving's post-NFL telecast on Nov. 26, 2015 (also a 1.5). The last time "Tonight" rated higher was two years ago (Thanksgiving 2014's 1.6). In metered-market households, last night's 2.9 is "Tonight's" best since Tuesday, Aug. 23 (3.0).

Seth Meyer's 1.5 in households and 0.7 in 18-49 in the LPMs are his highest of the season to date and best since this year's opening night NFL game on Sept. 8, 2016 (also a 1.5 in households and 0.7 in 18-49)

Similarly, "Last Call with Carson Daly" drew its best deliveries in both household (1.0) and 18-49 (0.5) local numbers so far this season and higheset since the season-opening night NFL game on Sept. 8 (also a 1.0 and a 0.5 respectively).

"Tonight" beat its season averages for original by +16% in households (2.9 vs. 2.5) and +88% in 18-49 (1.5 vs. 0.8). "Late Night" rose versus its season averages by +25% in households (1.5 vs. 1.2) and +75% in 18-49 (0.7 vs. 0.4).
