NBC RATINGS RESULTS FOR THE LATE-NIGHT WEEK OF MAY 27-31

NEW YORK — June 4, 2019 — Encore telecasts of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” have delivered a 0.37 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.945 million viewers overall for the late-night ratings week of May 27-31, to outrate CBS’ rebroadcast week of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” in all key demographics – – adults, men and women 18-34; adults, men and women 18-49; and adults, men and women 25-54..

Note that ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was delayed on Thursday by a high-rated NBA Finals overrun and aired Wednesday and Friday encores. All Monday results are excluded from these averages due to the Memorial Day holiday.

According to “live plus same day” results from Nielsen Media Research, “Tonight’s” encores topped “Colbert’s” rebroadcasts for the week in adults 18-49 by a +37% margin, with a 0.37 rating vs. a 0.27.

Last week at 12:35 a.m. ET, encores of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” outrated CBS’ rebroadcasts of “The Late Late Show with James Corden” in every key ratings measure, including by a +47% margin in adults 18-49 (with a 0.22 rating vs. a 0.15).

Season to date, Meyers also leads both “Late Late Show” and ABC’s “Nightline” in “most current” averages in every key ratings category.
