Head to head from 12:30 to 1 a.m., Jimmy Fallon topped ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in nearly all key categories: adults and men 18-34; adults, men and women 18-49; adults, men and women 25-54; and total viewers.

To date, Jay Leno has ranked #1 in adult 18-49 rating on 66 of 70 nights versus "Late Show" (including ties), since returning as host of "Tonight" on March 1. In total viewers, Jay has ranked #1 on 67 of 70 nights.

For the week of May 31-June 4, Jay's average 1.257 million adults 18-49 outscored Letterman's 935,000; in total viewers, Jay's audience of 3.446 million persons beat Letterman's 2.904 million; and in adults 18-34, Jay's 424,000 topped Letterman´┐Żs 258,000. At 12:35 a.m. ET, Jimmy Fallon's 673,000 adults 18-49 for the May sweep topped Ferguson's 582,000; in total viewers, Jimmy's 1.352 million trailed Ferguson's 1.496 million; and in adults 18-34, Jimmy's 239,000 out-delivered Ferguson's 196,000.
