Almost every late-night show took the week off for the July 4th holiday, leading to predictable ratings drops across the board.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” held onto the week’s no. 1 spot with a 0.32 average rating in the adults 18-49 demo, unsurprisingly down from its 0.41 average from the week before. ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (0.25) and CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (0.23) both experienced predictable hits week-to-week as well.

In the 12:35 a.m. time slot, “Nightline” took the week’s top spot with a 0.19 average rating, rising above both “Late Night with Seth Meyers” (0.18) and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.14).

On cable, TBS’ “Conan” (0.13) stayed on hiatus, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (0.12) also took the week off.

Here are the late-night numbers for July 1-5, 2019:
