'Tonight Show' Videos Generate a Total of 215 Million Online Views During the Weeks of Sept. 7 and Sept. 14

NEW YORK - Sept. 24, 2015 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" has finished #1 for the late-night ratings week of Sept. 14-18 in adults 18-49 and total viewers.

With the wins, "Tonight" remained the late-night leader in the key 18-49 demo and moved ahead of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" in total viewers in the second week of the new CBS talk show.

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" continued to dominate its time-period competition and virtually matched ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in adult 18-49 despite starting an hour later.

NBC's late-night success extended to the online world as well, where "Tonight" amassed a total of 215 million online views during the weeks of Sept. 7 and Sept. 14, with 14 separate "Tonight Show" videos generating more than 1 million views.

The NBC ratings wins for Sept. 14-18 conclude a dominant 2014-15 season for the network's late-night lineup, marking the 20th straight season "Tonight" has been the #1 late-night broadcast talk show among adults 18-49 and the 19th time in 20 seasons "Tonight" has been #1 in total viewers.

With the transition to Jimmy Fallon as host, "Tonight" has delivered the show's two top-rated seasons in the last six years.

For the 2014-15 52-week season, Fallon outdelivered the time period's ABC and CBS 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, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" topped CBS's "Late Late Show" for the season in all key categories and also outrated ABC's "Nightline" in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. ET in every key measure.

For the Sept. 14-18 week, Fallon won four of five nights versus Colbert in both 18-49 and total viewers, only trailing "Late Show" in 18-49 on Thursday - the night the CBS show was boosted by a high-rated NFL overrun. Fallon claimed that night in total viewers.

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" decisively topped CBS's "Late Late Show with James Corden" in both 18-49 and total viewers and, despite the later hour, nearly matched ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in 18-49 (0.46 vs. 0.47). Meyers outrated Kimmel in men 18-49 (0.44 vs. 0.36) and men 25-54 (0.54 vs. 0.47).

"Tonight" continues to excel across social platforms, with double- and triple-digit growth over the past year and a recent Creative Arts Emmys juried award win in the Social TV Experience category. Versus its levels of one year ago, "Tonight" is up +63% on Facebook (5.8 million likes for its show page vs. 3.6 million), up +92% on Twitter (3.0 million followers vs. 1.5 million), up +24% on Tumblr (703,000 followers vs. 569,000), up +84% on YouTube (8.0 million subscribers vs. 4.3 million) and up +218% on Instagram (1.4 million followers vs. 426,000).

For the weeks of Sept. 7 and Sept. 14, "Tonight Show" videos generated 153 million views on the show's channel on YouTube and 61 million views on Facebook. Over that span, 14 different "Tonight Show" videos amassed more than 1 million views on those platforms.
