Craig Ferguson beats Jimmy Fallon for the first time

This is exciting:
In a first in the late-night talk show world, CBS’ Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson beat NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in the coveted 18-49 demo, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Ferguson has been inching closer to this for a while: In five of the last seven weeks, he’s tied Fallon. But this is the first time since Ferguson’s 2005 premiere that he’s beaten his competitor from NBC in the advertiser-coveted demo. Jimmy Kimmel Live! managed to tie Late Night last week, too.

Check out the numbers via THR:

ADULTS 18-49

12:35am ET
NBC "Late Night," 0.5/3*
CBS "Late Late Show," 0.6/3*


12:35 am ET
NBC "Late Night," 1.3 million viewers*
CBS "Late Late Show," 1.9 million viewers*

(Asterisk: Tuesday night was coded an election night by Nielsen and not counted in the weekly average, but it doesn't change the outcome if included).
