Late Night Comment

NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’ is dominating late night while ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ seems to be slipping since its start. If one looks at last week, the guest list will quickly tell the story. Fallon had young stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Billie Lourd. Colbert had old stars. Jane Fonda, Burt Reynolds, Sharon Stone and Michael Caine may have been a staple with Johnny Carson, but in some cases it was painful to watch each of them try to navigate the step up onto the platform and the narrow walk in front of Colbet’s desk to their chair. Reynolds appeared to have sunk into the chair. If Colbert is to make a move as ‘today’s leading edge’, while he provided a great boost with his musical director, he will loose it with this program scheduling blunder. If we want to see these stars, we can watch them on TMC.

For The Record

NBC finished with an average 14.736 million viewers and an 8.6/14. ABC finished with an average 9.643 million viewers and a 5.8/9. CBS finished with an average 8.735 million viewers and a 5.5/9. FOX finished with an average 8.237 million viewers and a 4.7/7. Univision finished with a 1.1/1. Telemundo finished with a 0.4/1. Broadcast networks on Sunday drew an audience of 43.564 million viewers down 3.68% compared to the 45.229 million viewers last year on the same comparable date.

Among online US adults, Baby Boomers (46-65) spend almost twice as much time on a daily basis with TV, radio and print as do Millennials (16-3) per newly-released data from a TNS study. In fact, while Baby Boomers report spending more than double the time with TV (3.4 hours per day) as with TV and video online (1.3 hours), Millennial estimate spending more time with digital than offline TV (2.7 vs. 1.9 hours per day).
For comparison, Nielsen figures suggest that while youth watch substantially less traditional TV than their older counterparts, traditional TV viewing among Millennials is in excess of 2 hours per day, surpassing 3 hours per day for the 25-34 demographic.

Baby Boomers in the U.S. is estimated to be 75+ million. Aside from the sheer size of the boomer population, they are also affluent. Some estimates have them controlling 70% of the disposable income in the U.S. Also, boomers are tech savvy. They are heavy consumers of television programming, and they spend as much or more time online.
A Google/Ipsos study of consumers 45 and over found that the amount of time spent on the Internet and traditional television viewing were comparable. They found that the Internet is the top source for gathering information on topics of interest. In the DMN3 Study, the top three online activities of Boomers are: 1) Using search engines (96%); 2) Using email (95%); and 3) Shopping for products or services (92%).
