Actually, Donald Trump, Seth Meyers’ TV Ratings Are Pretty Good

Just ask James Corden

Seth Meyers banned Donald Trump from his “Late Night” talk show on Tuesday, setting up the GOP’s presumptive nominee for an easy insult this afternoon: “I only like doing shows with good ratings,” the former “Celebrity Apprentice” host said.

There’s just one problem with The Donald’s latest blowhard-y statement: Meyers’ TV ratings are actually pretty good.

Year-to-date, “Late Night” is actually up 5 percent in total viewers (1.58 million from 1.51 million), and flat in the three main demographics: 18-49, 25-54 and 18-34.

Those may not sound like huge numbers, but remember, this is 12:35 a.m. ET we’re talking about.

Plus, Meyers is still beating his main competition, James Corden‘s “Late Late Show,” despite that guy’s move from unknown to beloved.

Here are Trump’s full remarks: “He has begged me to do the show for the last two years. I have told him emphatically ‘no.’ I only like doing shows with good ratings, which as everybody knows, I only make better (by a lot).”

Seth Meyers and his executive producer Lorne Michaels did not immediately return TheWrap’s request for comment.
