While “The Late Show” garnered 3.46 million viewers, “The Tonight Show” had 1.94 million, just over 78% of its opponent. The occurrence serves as CBS’ fourth consecutive late-night win, the program’s longest winning streak, and the largest margin of victory for CBS over “The Tonight Show” since 1993-1994.
