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.

Although he appears to have topped Conan, the viewership WAS less than the 14.6 million who watched The Tonight Show to say goodbye to Jay Leno. Well, at least say goodbye for a second time!

Overall, it was a pretty robust opening for Jimmy, and we're excited to see how he does in direct competition with David Letterman!

And now retirement begins!

After Jay Leno's tearful goodbye to The Tonight Show, the former host hit the ground running to start his retirement!

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!

P.S. CLICK HERE to watch Jay's final monologue, and CLICK HERE to see his teary farewell!

Looks like there's still a little bit of bad blood between Team Coco and Team Leno!

Last night was Jay Leno's (second) last Tonight Show, as he had previously abdicated his late night throne back in 2009 before taking over his hosting duties again in 2010 in a controversy that left Conan O'Brien famously out of his coveted job.

While many have wished Jay well on his second retirement, our favorite red head above 6 feet had only a solitary zinger to deliver on the subject on TBS' Conan:

PEREZ Rewind: Conan O'Brien Leaves The Tonight Show! Relive His EPIC Inspirational Goodbye HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsInspirationJay LenoConan O'Brien

As Jay Leno says goodbye to The Tonight Show, we can't help but think back to a mere four years ago when another host said his own tearful farewell.

Conan O'Brien joked a lot on his way out, but in the end he took the highest of high roads, delivering one of the most positive, inspiring speeches we've ever heard.

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the funny man get serious for a moment to say:

"No one in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

Maybe the best advice we ever heard. And we're still trying our best!
