jon stewart beats jay leno in the ratings

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?
