Dec. 24-28 was a predictably low week across the board in the ratings, as almost all of the late-night shows took the holiday week off. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” led again, but fell from its previous 0.52 to a 0.38 rating in adults 18-49. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” was similarly down six-hundredths of a point from a 0.27 to a 0.21.

CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” took the biggest hit of the week, and dropped from a 0.46 to a 0.27, while ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” slipped three-hundredths to a 0.31. “The Late Late Show with James Corden” also fell to a 0.18 from the 0.25 it had scored the week before.

Here are the late-night numbers for Dec. 24-28, 2018:
