Back in Business


See! It really was just that troublesome 10 pm timeslot and those faulty lead-ins. Last night, Jay Leno returned to the driver's seat of the 11:35 PM Tonight Show and not only trounced CBS, but got twice the ratings of David Letterman. The Tonight Show with Jay Leno's second premiere scored a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 compared to Letterman's 1.0 rating. Temporary rating surge thanks to ConanGate rubbernecking, boost in viewers because of NBC's Winter Olympics coverage, or is America just ready to forgive Jay Leno? [TVbytheNumbers]
