I'm posting this (1) because I am a creature of habit, and (2) lots of people will likely want to make comments anyway, but all the shows below were in repeats for the weeks referenced.
IN REPEATS Leno'sfor the week of December 27-31, 2010 averaged a 1.0 with adults 18-49, while IN REPEATS 's averaged a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating for the comparable calendar week last year (December 28, 2009 - January 1, 2010).

For those constantly asking when these Jay vs. last year's posts will end, just 3 weeks to go. Plan your post-February whining now! Although after that date I plan to start a new chart with current year late night ratings.
The chart shows the late night adults 18-49 weekly average ratings for 2009 and 2010.
New and improved withTBS ratings!
