|Jimmy Fallon’s first Tonight Show strong in ratings|
Jimmy Fallon took over the legendary The Tonight Show last night and the ratings were strong. Guests Will Smith and U2 helped Fallon bring in 7.1 rating, much higher then Jay Leno had been trending, but lower then Jay’s farewell show. That equates to 11.4 million viewers for Fallon’s debut Tonight Show. While that is less than Jay Leno’s final show which scored 14.7 million viewers, it also didn’t start until after midnight due to the Olympics.
Congratulations to Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on their huge debut!
