Conan

Did big numbers for The Jay Leno Show premiere last night prop up The Tonight Show's numbers last night?  Perhaps, but unfortunately I lack the data to do good comparisons as I only have about a week's worth of recent overnight data for Conan.

The Tonight Show with Conan  O'Brien averaged a 1.4/6 rating/share with adults 18-49 and an 0.9/4 with adults 18-34 last night in preliminary numbers from Nielsen's largest 24 people meter markets. Those numbers are well up vs. last week, but last week was a repeat (0.8/4, 0.5/3).  Due to 43 minutes of overrun for the US Open Tennis men's finals, even preliminary numbers for CBS late night shows are not available.Jimmy Fallon averaged a 0.7/4 in 18-49, a 0.5/3 in 18-34 and a 0.8/4 in 25-54.

Last night Jimmy Fallon averaged a 0.7/4 in 18-49, a 0.5/3 in 18-34 and a 0.8/4 in 25-54.
