Night two of Conan O’Brien as new host of NBC’s The Tonight Show averaged a solid 5.0 rating/12 share in the metered markets, according to Nielsen Media Research data.

Comparably, that was the highest overnight rating for a Tuesday Tonight Show telecast since Feb. 27, 2007. And it was up by a considerable 28 percent over the second quarter 2009 Tuesday overnight average (3.9).

Versus the competition, Conan on The Tonight Show beat CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman (3.0/ 7) by 67 percent and ABC’s combination of Nightline (2.7/ 6) and Jimmy Kimmel Live (1.2/ 4) by 146 percent. Even so, last night’s overnight performance was down by 30 percent from the inflated 7.1/17 launch on Monday.
