We knew that everyone would be tuning in to see Stephen Colbert's debut as host of The Late Show, but this is downright insane!
The CBS late night TV show pulled in a stunning 6.6 million viewers on Tuesday night, absolutely crushing its competition.
In fact, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel only managed to attract 2.1 million and 1.2 million viewers, respectively.

Oh yeah — and apart from David Letterman's final week, Stephen's premiere was The Late Show's highest rated episode since 1995.
We guess George Clooney and Jeb Bush sure did make good inaugural guests!
