Can't win em all, Mr. Leno!
For the second quarter of 2011, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart has beat out Jay Leno's The Tonight Show in the 18-49 demographic.
This marks the first time in TEN YEARS that The Tonight Show hasn't had the top ratings in the demo for ages 18-49. Wow!
It was a tight battle though, as Jon's show averaged 1.295 mil viewers in 18-49 demo, and Jay averaged 1.292 mil in the same demo.
Guess we'll see if Jon is able to maintain his #1 spot with 18-49 year olds…or if this was just a one-time deal.
Which late night show do U prefer? The Daily Show or The Tonight Show?

Keith Olbermann, who was let go from MSNBC earlier this year, has returned to television with stellar ratings!
Although he couldn't quite overtake MSNBC's ratings during the 8pm premiere of his Current version of Countdown With Keith Olbermann last Monday, he managed to attract more target demographic viewers than CNN!
Countdown With Keith Olbermann averaged 179,000 viewers in news’ target demographic of 25- to 54-year-olds, while CNN's In The Arena with Eliot Spitzer only managed 89,000.
