TV Ratings: Colbert Narrowly Wins Season With Viewers, a CBS First Since 1995

TV Ratings: Colbert Narrowly Wins Season With Viewers, a CBS First Since 1995 | Hollywood Reporter: "The margin may be slim, but a hot streak since February puts 'The Late Show' at No. 1 over 'Tonight' for the year with 22,000 more viewers.
All of that heat for Stephen Colbert came at just the right time. In the last full week of the 2016-17 broadcast season, CBS' The Late Show With Stephen Colbert managed to top NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as the most-watched late-night talk show on broadcast.

An obvious first for Colbert, who struggled in his first year on The Late Show, it's a first for CBS since 1995. That's the last time its late-night entry bested a full season of The Tonight Show. (Of course, that's excluding the weird 2009-10 debacle when Conan O'Brien briefly took on the role of Tonight host, to middling results, and Jay Leno returned halfway through the year.)"



The margin may be slim, but a hot streak since February puts 'The Late Show' at No. 1 over 'Tonight' for the year with 22,000 more viewers.
