Colbert’s Late Show was top watched for 2020 season

I would marry Stephen Colbert in a heartbeat.  Which is why I’m thrilled his Late Night talk show took top spot for the FIFTH year in a row!

However, Deadline reports some interesting battles emerging across the broadcast networks involving Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Using full-season Live+7 ratings from Nielsen, Colbert comfortably won the spot with a total average of 2.95 million viewers – also the first time ever the CBS show has had a five-season winning streak. But for the first time in its 18-year history, Jimmy Kimmel Live! beat NBC’s The Tonight Show in total viewers. The ABC show beat the NBC show 1.75M-1.54M across all viewers.

Which I also love because I love Jimmy Kimmel and loath Jimmy Fallon.
