Featuring an interview with John Oliver and BLACKPINK’s debut US television performance, CBS’ “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” fared well in the ratings Monday.

Per a daily ratings blast from competitor NBC, Monday’s “Late Show” drew a 3.0 overnight household rating. With that figure, the CBS program ranked as the night’s top-drawing late-night program.

NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” delivered a 1.9, while ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” posted a 1.8.

The current ratings data does not include the Seattle market, but that omission doubtfully has a major impact on the numbers.

Not simply enough for a nightly victory, Monday’s household performance tops seven of the past eight broadcasts (including last Monday’s airing). The only episode that did better over that range was the live, post-State of the Union special on February 5.

— “The Late Show” meanwhile tied the other two programs for first place in adults 18-49 (all three drew a 0.5).
