Leno Is A Winner AND A Loser In The Ratings!

How can that be?

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno is winning in the ratings compared to the Late Show with David Letterman in the adult demo with Leno at 4.4 million viewers and Letterman at 3.8 million.

BUT, Leno's ratings compared to his performance last year have slipped 13% in the demographic and 3% in viewers meaning his entire audience hasn't returned.

Another cause for alarm is that Leno is just barely beating Conan O'Brien's previous ratings on the Tonight Show with his average at 1.2 to Conan's 1.1

Not the greatest news for NBC after all that controversy!

    So happy to see people aren't returning to his show. Hopefully it's not just temporary and people quit watching because they realize what a douchebag he really is after the NBC debacle.
    Team Coco!!

    Poor choice Leno endup his show last year nicely and they should have leave like that if they want to him so much NBC should just have a special weekly show for him and his fans without all the mess that they created between Leno & Conan !

    It'll be interesting to see what Kharma has in store for Jay.

    I have not tuned into Jay once since he slithered back in. I watch Letterman. I used to tune between both of them depending on guests but no more. Jay can go fuck himself in all his cars. You know what will be really interesting to watch is when Conan returns this fall on Fox and steals away even more viewers. Leno's ratings will drop faster than Jesse James' pants in the monster garage.

    Get over it Petez. People like Jay period.i most shows are down so it's too low to single him out. The "Team Coco" people will never admit that Jay is doing well and they will always find reasons to hate. Let it go. Move on.

    I'm glad they're neck-and-neck and Leno is not way ahead. Can't wait till Coco comes and pulls Leno's share down even more. The less people watching Leno, the greater this nation will become.

    Wish they could rate how fast I forward through those shows looking for something interesting to watch

    Would you stop sucking up to Conan and start telling the truth. Leno brought in about 5 million viewers before being forced to retire by NBC and Conan. Conan brought in 2.5 million viewers as host of the Tonight Show. Thats a far cry from the 4.8 million Leno is bringing in now. Plus 4.8 million isn't far behind the 5 million he used to bring in.

    coco is not funny at all….its about bussiness..if ur show doesnt rate ofcouse they if ax ur frikin ass and they will put a show that rate nackle head!..team coco whatever..

    You do realize that non of this NBC stuff was about late night in the first place right? It's about affiliate ratings, which have no doubtably gone up. And Leno is beating Conan's ratings, so I say good move NBC.. Btw, I'm a Conan fan.



  14. 14

    Leno sucks! Letterman is the KING and Conan the prince of late night!

    Leno and his ugly ass daughter Reese Witherspoon can go die! Letterman has always been funnier and hes at least an imperfect human being not a robot like that giant chinned tool. Suck it Jay! Im just glad to know your not enjoying life anymore after screwing so many over instead of just screwing like Dave.

    Re: himynameisgeoff – And the affiliate ratings are up bc Leno's not at the 10 o'clock hour anymore, right? Jay Leno made a muck of it for everyone.



  17. 17

    and obrien tanked…….thats why he is gone…

    Re: YUCK – u got iy right



  19. 19

    Umm I don't like Jay but he is NOT flopping. He is beating Letterman. The demos are not much higher than Conan, but he is still way up in ratings from Conan who lost nearly 50% of the audience. I think NBC are shits, but if all of these people who are whining would have watched Conan he would not be gone!

    The only reason Conan's ratings were so bad is because of his lead in.. That just happened to be jay leno. Conan would have been fine if leno's 10 show did not blow
