‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ plummets to new low

Ratings
for The
Tonight
Show
Starring
Jimmy
Fallon
 
cratered
to
a
new
low
this
week,
as
Monday’s
episode
drew
just
947,000
total
viewers.
According
to

The
Wrap
,
the
former
king
of
late
night
was
dominated
by
his
counterparts,
including
Stephen
Colbert
and
Jimmy
Kimmel,
who
drew
an
estimated
2.03
million
and
1.67
million
total
viewers,
respectively,
that
evening.

The
Monday,
January
11
episode
of The
Tonight
Show 
featured
interviews
with
guests
Bill
Burr
and
Rashida
Jones
and
a
musical
performance
by
Old
Dominion.
Fallon’s

monologue

that
evening
riffed
on
Trump’s
permanent
Twitter
ban
and
Nickelodeon’s
NFL
broadcast,
among
other
topics.

It’s
worth
noting
that
Nielsen’s
early
ratings
estimate
does
not
take
delayed
viewing
or
streaming
into
account.

The
Tonight
Show
Starring
Jimmy
Fallon 
may
not
have
drawn
many
live
viewers,
but
it’s
possible
that
thousands
of
fans
tuned
in
via
Hulu,
Peacock,
or
NBC.com,
data
from
which
is
not
included
in
the
947,000
figure.
Plus,
many
viewers
(particularly
younger
viewers)
prefer
to
stream
individual
clips
on
YouTube
rather
than
watch
the
entire
episode
live,
a
habit
that
could
be
skewing
the
data,
as
well.


The
Tonight
Show

ratings
have
been
in
free
fall
throughout
the
Trump
era


Colbert
first
passed
Fallon

in
the
ratings
in
November
2018,
and
has
remained
on
top
ever
since

but
the
drop
off
has
been
particularly
steep
amid
the
COVID-19
pandemic.
The
Wrap
reports
that

The
Tonight
Show 
has
had
three
record
lows
since
August
2020,
per
Nielsen’s
estimates:
the
first
on
August
18
(1
million
total
viewers),
followed
by
another
on
September
22
(992,000
total
viewers),
and
then
Monday,
January
11.

Nielsen
has
only
kept
ratings
data
since
1986,
but
during
that
time, The
Tonight
Show 
has
always
attracted
more
than
a
million
viewers
each
night

until
now.
Of
course,
viewers
in
2021
have
more
options
than
ever
before,
but
the
continued
success
of

The
Late
Show
with
Stephen
Colbert 
and Jimmy
Kimmel
Live 
suggests
that
this
is
a
Fallon-specific
problem,
as
millions
of
Americans
are
clearly
tuning
in
to
other
late
night
programs.
