Jay Leno VS Jimmy Kimmel: Ratings Round One Goes To…

Jay Leno Jimmy Kimmel Ratings War Begins

Jimmy Kimmel had a lot of big words about winning the ratings war as his show moved to an earlier time slot, opposite The Tonight Show.

But if there's one thing Jay Leno is good at, it's taking it on the chin.

So who won the first battle of the ratings war?

The numbers were closer than some expected, but we do have a decisive winner, and it's…


The silver-haired host continued to own the time slot, bringing in 3.3 million viewers while Jimmy's HIGHlarious Mean Tweets and an appearance by beach buddy Jennifer Aniston were only able to garner the ABC show 3.1 mil.

Oh, well! It was still Jimmy Kimmel Live's second highest rated ep of all time, so things are looking just fine.

Besides, there's always tomorrow night!

    Yeah its kind of weird because I seriously laugh out loud more at Kimmel BUT Jay has better guests on at least the 1st guest is always great. Like Bill Maher the other night. After that he has Snookie (who gives a crap about Snooki really?)& J Woww(who looked alot older & sounded SO stupid) & he always has pretty awful musical guests. I think a wider (no not just fat ladies)demographic responds to Jay 18-90. Where as Kimmel is for the 18-55 set. Old people don't get him. Oh well.

    You obviously know nothing about tv ratings and who the real winner was. It's all about viewers 18-49 and jimmy beat jay in that demographic making jimmy the winner.

    Jay Leno is hilarious — Kimmel seems to be trying to get ratings by trashing Leno.
