JIMMY FALLON DOMINATES THE LATE-NIGHT WEEK OF APRIL 21-25, UP +36% VS. "TONIGHT'S" YEAR-AGO WEEK IN 18-49

Seth Meyers Returns From a Week of Encores With a +2% Gain vs. His Prior Week of Originals

'Last Call' Beats its Year-Ago Week by +25%

NEW YORK - May 1, 2014 - In its 10th week, "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" continued to generate elevated ratings, returning from a week of encores with a +36% increase versus "Tonight's" results for the same week last year in adult 18-49 rating, while time-period rivals on ABC and CBS were down versus the same week last year.

For the week of April 21-25, Fallon's 1.05 rating in adults 18-49 came within 0.03 of a rating point of the combined 18-49 results of CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" (0.51) and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (0.57). In total viewers, Fallon outdelivered Letterman by +20% (3.358 million vs. 2.807 million) and Kimmel by +35% (3.358 million vs. 2.487 million). Note that Kimmel was in rebroadcast on Friday.

In a week that saw all three 11:35 p.m. ET talk shows return from a week of encores, Fallon's 1.05 rating was up +36% versus the year-ago 0.77 for "Tonight," while "Late Show" declined by 18% (0.51 vs. 0.62) and "Kimmel" was down by 10% (0.57 vs. 0.63).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" grew +2% versus its prior week of originals despite returning from a week of repeats, scoring a 0.57 rating in adults 18-49, up from a 0.56 for its last week of originals April 7-11. Versus a 0.46 for "Late Night" results during the year-ago week, last week's 0.57 was up +24%.

Meyers outrated CBS's Letterman in 18-49 and tied ABC's Kimmel in adults 18-49, despite starting an hour later than those rival shows.

At 1:35 a.m. ET, "Last Call with Carson Daly" (0.35 rating in adults 18-49) jumped +25% versus the same week last year (0.28). Daly outrated CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (0.33 from 12:35-1:35 a.m.) and finished within 0.04 of a point of ABC's "Nightline" (0.39 from 12:35-1:05 a.m.), despite starting an hour later.
