NBC’s Rising Leno Dominates Kimmel and Letterman July 5, 2013 | 06:07PM PT

CBS veteran declines further, places third in key demos for second quarter; Peacock's Fallon hot

He’s a little more than six months away from passing the “Tonight Show” baton — again — but Jay Leno is very much still on his game ratings-wise.

In Nielsen numbers for the second quarter of this year, NBC’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno” was easily the top-rated hour in latenight. ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” ranked second in key demos for a second straight quarter in its new, earlier timeslot and remains the youngest-skewing of the 11:35 p.m. talkshows.
