President Gifts Letterman With Most Viewers In 4 Years


In addition to pulling off one of the most coolly executed guest segments in Late Show history last night, President Obama attracted the largest Letterman audience in the span of a full presidential term. With a 14 share, CBS clobbered NBC's Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien by nearly 200% more viewers and out-finished the Jay Leno Show by 27% among households. The last person to garner a larger audience for Letterman was Oprah in 2005. [Hollywood Reporter]
