Using Final Cut video filters, what's the best way of making video shot in the middle of the day look like night?

There are several "Day for Night" filters available from third party vendors. But if you want to use only the filters included with FCP I'd try a combination of the Tint filter and the 3-Way Color Corrector (for adjusting blacks and mid-levels).

Using the three-way color corrector to desaturate the video, darken it, and make it more blueish would probably be a good start. But to be honest, you're not going to get a 100% realistic look unless you actually shoot the video at night.
