"Late Night" Once Again Delivers Double-Digit Advantages in 18-49 Over "Late Late Show" and "Nightline" in Head-to-Head Competition

NEW YORK - Feb. 25, 2016 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" has scored decisive victories for the late-night ratings week of Feb. 15-19, prevailing in every key measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers - versus CBS's "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

For the week, Fallon beat Colbert in adult 18-49 rating by a +68% advantage (0.96 rating vs. a 0.57) and topped Kimmel by an +81% margin (with a 0.96 vs. 0.53). Note that Friday's Kimmel telecast was an encore and Monday's show was excluded due to the Presidents Day holiday

Fallon delivered four-week highs with a week of "Tonight Show" telecasts from Los Angeles, generating his top 18-49 and total-viewer numbers since Jan. 18-22 (1.03 rating in 18-49, 3.705 million viewers overall for the week of high-rated Friday telecasts during winter storm Jonas). Week to week, Fallon was up +7% in 18-49 (0.96 vs. 0.90 for Feb. 8-12) and +3% in total viewers (3.509 million vs. 3.411 million).

At 12:35 a.m. ET for the week, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" generated a +26% margin in 18-49 over CBS's "Late Late Show with James Corden" (0.44 vs. 0.35) and a +39% advantage over ABC's "Nightline" (0.50 vs. 0.36 in their 12:30-1 a.m. head-to-head half-hour).
