Fallon Outrates Both Kimmel and Letterman in 18-49 and All Key Ratings Categories

NEW YORK - December 1, 2014 - "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" was the #1 late-night show for the week of Nov. 17-21, outrating "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Late Show with David Letterman" in the 18-49 demo and all key categories.

"The Tonight Show" drew a 1.04 rating in the 18-49 demo for the week, slightly above its 1.03 season-to-date originals average. That was better than Kimmel's 0.74 and more than doubled Letterman's 0.50.

"Late Night with Seth Meyers" averaged a season-high 0.54 in the 18-49 demo for the week, including a Friday repeat (0.50), up from the show's 0.50 season average for weeks of mostly originals. Despite airing an hour later, "Late Night" topped Letterman by +0.04 for the week.

"Last Call with Carson Daly" drew a 0.37 18-49 rating for the week, the show's best result since the week of 3/17/14 (also a 0.37), and topped CBS's Ferguson (0.32) despite starting an hour later.
