"Fallon" Beats the Combined Scores of "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" for the Week of March 24-28
NBC spins the late-night numbers for the week of March 24-28.

[via press release from NBC]

In its sixth week, "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" continued to generate elevated results, retaining 99% of the prior week's adult 18-49 rating, which was the show's highest since week two of Fallon's run on "Tonight." And at 12:35 a.m. ET, week five of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" hit three-week highs in 18-49 and total viewers, with week-to-week growth of 4% in 18-49 and 8% in total viewers.

Fallon (with a 1.33 rating in adults 18-49) beat the combined scores of CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" (0.53) and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (0.65) for the week of March 24-28. The 1.33 comes within 1% off the 1.35 for Fallon's prior week. Note that Thursday and Friday CBS programming is excluded from these averages due to NCAA overruns and Friday's "Kimmel" was an encore.

Meyers (0.70) topped both Letterman and Kimmel in 18-49 for the week, despite starting an hour later. Head-to head, Meyers out-delivered CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" by a 79% margin (0.70 vs. 0.39) and ABC's "Nightline" from 12:30 to 1 a.m. by 95% (0.80 vs. 0.41 for that head-to-head half-hour).

Last week's 0.70 rating in 18-49 and 1.995 million viewers overall for Meyers were up versus the prior week's 0.67 in 18-49 and 1.854 million viewers overall, and are highs since the show's second week on the air (0.71 in 18-49, 2.073 million viewers overall for the week of March 3-7). Note that last week's Friday's "Late Night" was a rebroadcast while all five nights of prior weeks were originals.

Compared with the same week last year, Fallon was up 75% versus "Tonight's" 18-49 rating (with a 1.33 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 vs. the year-ago 0.76/3) and up 22% in total viewers (4.306 million vs. 3.541 million).

Meyers scored gains versus the same weeks last year, up 43% versus "Late Night" results for the year-ago week in 18-49 (0.70/4 vs. 0.49/3) and up 20% in total viewers (1.995 million vs. 1.663 million).

At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" was up versus the same week last year by 17% in 18-49 (0.35/3 vs. 0.30/2) and up 15% in total viewers (1.013 million vs. 879,000).
