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:
