'THE TONIGHT SHOW' CONTINUES DOMINANCE AGAINST ABC, CBS TIMESLOT COMPETITION FOR WEEK OF NOV. 10-14

Fallon Wins in All Key Ratings Categories While "Late Night" Outscores Ferguson, "Nightline"

NEW YORK - Nov. 20, 2014 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" has generated a four-week high in adults 18-49 and a six-week high in total viewers to dominate the late-night ratings week of Nov. 10-14.

Fallon won five of five nights of the week versus the time period's ABC and CBS competition in both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

Fallon's 1.03 rating for the week was his highest since earning a 1.06 during the week of Oct. 13-17 and his 3.680 million viewers overall was a "Tonight" high since the show averaged 3.896 million for the week of Sept. 29-Oct. 3.

Fallon beat ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" for the week in every key ratings category - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers. Fallon's 1.03 rating for the week generated a +69% advantage over Kimmel (0.61) and a +102% margin over Letterman (0.51).

At 12:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Seth Meyers" outscored CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" in every key ratings measure and also topped ABC's "Nightline" in their head-to-head half-hour from 12:30-1 a.m. in all key categories.

At 1:35 a.m. ET, "Last Call with Carson Daly" (0.31 in 18-49 rating) topped CBS's Ferguson (0.30) despite starting an hour later.

Note that Kimmel, Meyers and Carson Daly aired encores on Friday night.
