During the week of March 16, 2020, ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” delivered its strongest hiatus week of the season in Total Viewers (1.611 million) and Adults 18-49 (401,000) despite airing in the later 12:05 a.m. time period Tuesday through Friday.

On their only head-to-head matchup during the week, ABC’s “Kimmel” outdelivered repeat broadcasts on Monday of CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” in Adults 18-49 by 16% (495,000) and NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” by 34% (430,000) to rank as the night’s No. 1 late-night talk show.
