‘TONIGHT SHOW’ ENCORES WIN EVERY KEY DEMO FOR THE LATE-NIGHT RATINGS WEEK OF APRIL 10-14

“Tonight” Rebroadcasts Top “Late Show” Encores and “Jimmy Kimmel Live’s” Week of Four Originals & One Rebroadcast

NEW YORK — April 18, 2017 — A week of encore telecasts of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” has won the late-night ratings week of April 10-14 in adults 18-49 and every other key ratings demographic – adults, men and women 18-34; men and women 18-49; and adults, men and women 25-54 -- versus rebroadcasts of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and a week of four originals and one encore for “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” according to “live plus same day” results from Nielsen Media Research.

The “Tonight” encores led Kimmel’s week of mostly originals by an +11% margin in adults 18-49 (with a 0.51 rating vs. a 0.46) and topped Colbert’s week of rebroadcasts by +31% (0.51 vs. 0.39).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, a rebroadcast week of “Late Night With Seth Meyers” ranked #1 versus CBS’ encores of “The Late Late Show with James Corden” in every key measure (including a tie in men 18-34).

“Late Night” outscored “Late Late Show” by a +25% margin in adults 18-49 (0.30 vs. 0.24). In its head-to-head half-hour versus ABC’s “Nightline,” Meyers’ week of encore prevailed by a +17% advantage (0.34 vs. 0.29 from 12:30 to 1 a.m. ET).
