Craig Ferguson draws more 18-49 viewers than Jimmy Fallon for first time

In a first in the late-night talk show world, CBS’ Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson beat NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in the coveted 18-49 demo, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Ferguson has been inching closer to this for a while: In five of the last seven weeks, he’s tied Fallon. But this is the first time since Ferguson’s 2005 premiere that he’s beaten his competitor from NBC in the advertiser-coveted demo. Jimmy Kimmel Live! managed to tie Late Night last week, too.

    Guess it doesn’t help that Conan is absolutely TANKING in the ratings, dragging down Jimmy with him.

    But I’m excited for Craig’s success – he’s the best kept secret on late-night TV!

    Wavey the crocodile FTW!!!!

    Ferguson is funny as hell!!! I feel bad for Fallon he hasn’t had much luck since he left SNL.

    • Quirky

      That’s becuase he hasn’t had much talent either.

  • Reenie

    No– it’s the new awkward pause in Late Night! We love Craig! More Scots on Late Night!

    Yay! I love Craig. He and Colbert could rule the world together!

    It’s understandable that he is winning – Conan is OH SO BAD – bring back Leno to the Tonight show and well Conan ?

  • RR3

    Craig Ferguson is the bloody best host of all Late night television…
    yes, including Conan O’brien!!
    eventhough George Lopez, on TBS “Lopez Late night” …just started and it looks is going to be great!!

  • Dude

    more negative results coming form the poor performance of the Leno Show earlier in the night. Leno continues to destroy the audience numbers for NBC which were bad enough already
