"THE TONIGHT SHOW" WINS LATE-NIGHT RATINGS RACE FOR WEEK OF OCT. 6-10

Fallon Bests Kimmel, Letterman and Also Gains 18% Vs. 'Tonight's One Year Ago 18-49 Demo

NEW YORK - Oct. 16, 2014 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" has won the late-night ratings week of Oct. 6-10 with an +18% gain over "Tonight's" year-ago week in adults 18-49. "The Tonight Show" also won all five nights of the week versus the time period's ABC and CBS competition in 18-49 and total viewers.

Fallon's 1.00 rating in adults 18-49 for the week dominated the timeslot competition, delivering a +64% margin over ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (0.69) and a +75% margin over CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" (0.57). In total viewers, Fallon's average 3.668 million persons gave him advantages of +33% over "Late Show" (2.758 million) and +42% over "Kimmel" (2.585 million).

Versus the same week last year, "The Tonight Show" grew by +18% in 18-49 rating (to a 1.00 from a 0.85) and was up +6% in total viewers (3.668 million vs. 3.459 million).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" outdelivered CBS's rebroadcasts of "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" in adults 18-49 and all other key measures, excluding men 18-34, where the two shows tied. Meyers also prevailed versus ABC's "Nightline" in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. in every key measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

Note that CBS's Thursday shows were delayed last week by a high-rated NFL overrun. Friday's "Kimmel," "Late Night" and "Last Call" were encores.
