Colbert beating Fallon in ratings since Trump took office


President Trump's promise to change America is already producing results — at least when it comes to late-night TV.

CBS' "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" attracted more viewers than its rival, NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," during the week that ended Feb. 10 — the second week in a row the Peacock Network finished No. 2.

And Colbert's margin of victory is growing.

In the week ended Feb. 3 — Colbert's first week of new shows since Trump's inauguration — "Late Night" edged out "Tonight" by a mere 10,000 viewers. Last week, that margin of victory grew to 130,000.

While Fallon still draws in a bigger audience of 18- to 49-year-olds, the demographic that advertisers covet, his once-comfortable margin of victory is getting slim.
