The late-night ratings battle between Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon really tightened during the CBS host’s 13th consecutive win over once-dominant Tonight — and, even more curious, NBC’s demo lead grew to its biggest since January.
For the week of April 24, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert averaged 2.74 million viewers. That’s a mere 2 percent (just 67,000 viewers) above Tonight, making for Colbert’s narrowest margin of victory since his streak kicked off in January. The gap between Colbert has fluctuated greatly since then, with Colbert once averaging as many as 400,000 more viewers than Fallon, but it’s rarely been nearly this tight.
