When shooting at night is there any advantage of one frame rate over the other?

If you stick with a standard shutter speed, the fame rate generally influences how long the exposure is. With a standard shutter speed of double the frame rate or what is called a 180 degree shutter, the higher the frame rate, the less time each frame is exposed and thus requires more light during that time to get the same exposure. You can change the shutter speed but it will also influence the amount of crispness vs. mushiness of each frame. Too fast a shutter and you get a staccato effect. Too slow and there will be smearing and blurring in each frame. This depends on how much motion is in your shot.

Clear as mud? Good! Best to experiment and see what you like.

Agree

One more thing: The best setting to capture more light without raising ISO to the sky, is 24fps 1/50 shutter speed, or 30fps 1/60.

The frame rate isn't going to change the way the picture/video looks, at night time. That is just how many pictures it takes a second, so you can adjust the smoothness. I would shoot in the highest fps you can, at all times.
One thing to keep in mind - the more fps, the less information in each frame. I believe this to be the case
