ABC received good ratings news for night two of “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Back To Brooklyn.”
According to ABC, the episode drew a 2.4 overnight household rating.
The figure ranks as the show’s best Tuesday number since November 24, 2015. It marks a 33% increase over the 1.8 rating posted by last Tuesday’s broadcast.
Yes, the episode benefited from an absence of original competition. CBS’ “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” both aired re-runs Tuesday night.
It is important to note, however, that this Tuesday’s episode outperformed the corresponding episode from 2015, which also faced re-runs of “Colbert” and “Fallon.”
Airing from Brooklyn on October 20, 2015, that broadcast drew a 2.2 household rating.
— This Tuesday’s “Kimmel” featured David Letterman, Stevie Wonder (unadvertised) and musical guest Fifth Harmony.
