After Colbert’s show, Late Late Show with James Corden scored its biggest Tuesday tally in a year.
Colbert clocked 3.32M viewers, and a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demo as well as a 0.8 with adults 25-54. Obama visited Late Show to promote her Let Girls Learn initiative and to reminisce about her FLOTUS years. Asked, by Colbert if she had “any sympathy” for Melania Trump, who had been criticized for using what turned out to be portions of a FLOTUS speech in her speech on the RNC opening night, Obama responded, “Yeah, that was tough.”
Corden’s show scored 1.44M viewers.
