There’s no stopping NBC’s late-night duo of Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers, which last week dominated their talk-show competition in key demos even with encore airings, reports Variety.
The story continues, “Since the start of the television season, the NBC hosts have now swept 25 of 25 weeks in both key demos and total viewers.”
Furthermore, “Looking at the Nielsen estimates for the March 7-11 frame, ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ led all late-night programs with a 0.80 rating in adults 18-49 (1.03 million in the demo). Even in encores, this is a bigger young-adult tune-in than every week of any other late-night host during the past six months. (Colbert’s premiere week in early September did rate higher with a 0.94.)”
The piece also notes, “It continues to be a tight race, meanwhile, for second place behind Fallon at 11:35 p.m. between ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and CBS’ ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ The former has been winning most recent weeks in the 18-49 demo (some very narrowly) while the latter has consistently placed second in total viewers.”
