Jimmy Fallon's First Tonight Show Tops The Ratings Of Conan O'Brien's, But How'd He Match Up With Jay Leno?
We think Jimmy Fallon looks pretty good behind his new desk, and viewers seem to agree as well, for the most part!
Jimmy had 11.31 million viewers tuning in last night during his inaugural episode, which was over 2 million more watching than there were during Conan O'Brien's premiere back in 2009. However, the two had the same rating of 3.8 in the 18-48 demographic.
If Conan O'Brien & Jimmy Kimmel's Tonight Show Welcome To Jimmy Fallon Were Any Warmer, This Post Would Come With Oven Mitts!
The Tonight Show chair is still moist from 22 years of Jay Leno's sweet-ass ass sweat, but you might be surprised to learn how quickly other late night hosts embraced the changing of the guards!
ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, for one, hopes they're rivals for decades to come!
And now retirement begins!
Jay was spotted in Florida on Saturday afternoon giving his wifey, Mavis, some love before they were picked up at the hotel by a friend!
The two headed out to a local classic car museum, and we're definitely surprised the former Tonight Show host didn't leave the place with a few new wheels in tow!
Although maybe his wife wouldn't have been very happy with that. LOLz!!
Later that night Jay and Mavis took a private jet to West Palm Beach for his stand up comedy show!
Whoever said retirement was boring srsly didn't know how to live like Jay. Ha!

Way to exit out on top!
Jay Leno's final Tonight Show had the most viewers it's had in 15 years, as 14.6 million people tuned into laugh, cry, and say goodbye to Jay!
That's almost as many cars as he owns!
The last time such a large audience watched The Tonight Show was on May 14, 1998, when 15 million watched on to see Jerry Seinfeld talk with Jay right after the end of Seinfeld.
Well, it looks like these ratings should give Jay a reason to chin up! With such a large fan base, who knows? Maybe he'll return to television again!
