At 12:35 a.m. ET, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” outscored CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” (with a 0.52 rating vs. a 0.43) despite starting an hour later, and finished the week within 0.05 of a point of “Kimmel” (0.52 vs. 0.57).   Note that Friday’s Fallon, Letterman, Kimmel and Meyers telecasts were encores.
