For the first time in more than 20 years, CBS’s “The Late Show” is the No. 1 show in late night. Stephen Colbert’s series has been winning significantly in total viewers for a few seasons, but now he’s also ahead in the all-important 18-49 demographic.

The 2018-19 season officially ends this week, and Colbert has pulled ahead in the demo by a tiny but critical number — about a hundredth of a ratings point. “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” is third in the demo.
