Leno has now delivered bigger 18-49 audiences than "Late Show" for the last 20 weeks in a row and topped "Kimmel" for 11 of their 13 head-to-head weeks. In total viewers, Leno has out-delivered "Late Show" for 24 weeks in a row and for all 13 weeks since Kimmel moved to 11:35 p.m.

Fallon has now generated bigger 18-49 audiences than "Late Late Show" for 25 of the last 26 weeks and prevailed in total viewers for 22 of the last 24 weeks. Versus ABC's newsmagazine "Nightline" in their head-to-head half-hour, Fallon has out-delivered the ABC series for 13 weeks in a row in viewers 18-49 and nine of the last 10 weeks in total viewers.

The week included Leno's biggest Monday overall audience in 15 weeks and biggest Wednesday viewership in nine weeks. The Monday show averaged 3.8 million viewers overall (best since Dec. 17, 3.9 million) while Wednesday's episode averaged 3.8 million, his best since Jan. 30 (3.9 million).
