"THE TONIGHT SHOW" AND "LATE NIGHT" EASILY OUTPERFORM TIMESLOT COMPETITION FOR WEEK OF DEC. 7-11

Excluding NFL Boosts, This Is Fallon's Biggest Margin to Date Versus a Week of Colbert Originals in Total Viewers

NEW YORK - Dec. 17, 2015 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers" have dominated the late-night ratings week of Dec. 7-11, defeating their ABC and CBS time-period competition in every key measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

For the week, Fallon outdelivered CBS's "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" by 1.255 million viewers overall (3.628 million vs. 2.373 million) and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" by 1.485 million viewers (3.628 million vs. 2.143 million).

Excluding weeks of rating boosts from primetime NFL coverage, this is Fallon's biggest margin to date versus a week of Colbert originals in total viewers. The prior biggest margin for a non-NFL week was the 1.135 million for the week of Oct. 26-30 (3.756 million vs. 2.621 million).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, Meyers beat CBS's "Late Late Show with James Corden" by 492,000 viewers (1.660 million vs. 1.168 million) and has over the last three weeks delivered his three biggest total-viewer margins of the season over Corden.
