Conan O'Brien's Ratings Were Higher Than Leno's

Conan O'Brien's Ratings Were Higher Than Leno's

Conan O’Brien is in good spirits as he waves to photographers while leaving a restaurant on Monday (June 28) in Los Feliz, Calif.

Based off of last year’s data in the same calendar week, preliminary data has shown that the 47-year-old former Tonight Show host had better ratings than Jay Leno‘s current ratings.

According to TV By The Numbers, Leno is finishing below Conan‘s ratings at 0.9 adults in the 18-49 ratings. Nevertheless, Leno‘s Tonight Show has been beating David Letterman‘s Late Night for the last couple of weeks.

Conan‘s new show will debut on TBS November 8.

    What a misleading heading. He was higher in one specific demographic. Leno’s ratings are still higher overall.

  • lol

    Coco looks adorable :3

  • alison

    You made a huge mistake NBC, because it just dosen’t get better than Conan.

  • T pain

    i was lucky enough to attend the last taping of his show.

    Team Coco~!

  • rhonda

    get ov er it! if people wanted conan they should have watched his show! Tried to support Leno, but he is still doing Bush jokes and Bush has been gone for nearly two years!

    Hey, Leno, try some Truman jokes, maybe that will help!

  • Josie

    rhonda get your facts straight before you speak! 6 months, he was on NBC for 6 months! not enough time and definitely not fair to compare! he was just getting started, it takes time to adjust and for people to settle in, 6 months is nothing, he deserved more time!

  • lastweek

    Coco sucks, Leno for the win

  • twitter

    Leno is a jerk, and he is failing fast.

  • jane

    #1 The headline is not misleading it is fact. You are misleading . You liar.

  • denise

    The boycott against Leno is working. GOOD!

  • Andrea

    Love Conan.

    He doesn’t need writers to make people laugh, he’s naturally funny unlike Jay.

    conan is truly talented… a class act!

    the only one out of the two that could EVER leave a network, go on a SUCCESSFUL TOUR AROUND THE COUNTRY and be AMAZING.

    I saw the show myself and absolutely loved it and didn’t think I could love him more than I did. A truly funny and talented guy!! WHO’S a TEAM PLAYER… took care of his workers when everyone was let go–paid them salary, etc. NOT SELFISH and only CONCERNED with HIMSELF (like LENO.) He deserves all the success!! Can’t wait for his show on TBS.. XO

  • anon

    CAn’t stand this carrot top loser. He is NOT funny at all, I don’t understand why the TBS idiots are giving him a chance.
    I am sure he’ll get ratings during his first six months but after that he’ll begin to sink. He is a one note, and one note can only carry you so far.

  • mike

    Conan is a spiteful biatch and a cry baby. I won’t be watching him @tbs.

  • Giselle

    Why can’t conan take his 100M or whatever he got from NBC and go away.

  • Quay


    lol yes senior citizens are the most important demographic period..
    don’t forget your Geritol before bed tonight

    I think Conan should do us all a favor and dissapear from the radar. He should move to Lake Cuomo, or Ireland.

  • Eclipse

    Why is Conan taking over George Lopez show?, I like George, but I can’t stand Conan, his jokes are too forced, George is a natural.

  • gossip girl

    Team Loco all the way. Coco can suck my b’utthole

  • http://!! MEMEME

    How is Conan spiteful??? Because Jay Leno and NBC gave him the show, and then TOOK it back??? Talk about Indian givers!!!!

    Conan has been nothing but respectful— a lot more respectful than ANY of us would be in a situation like that!!!!!

    All of you Leno interns and workers, quit writing sh-t about Conan, to make yourself feel better!!!

  • Jokergurl

    I wish they would bring back the driving desk, that skit was so funny. :)

  • Nora

    Let’s hope Jay will follow Larry’s crippled footsteps and walk into the sunset tomorrow.

  • jj22

    Leno as better ratings overall idiots!

  • Lobster

    Coco’s great and so’s Leno…
    The Tonight Show was just the wrong format for Coco and that was all folks!

  • A. Nonymous

    @anon: Thanks for your input, Mr. Leno.

  • jaye

    Never knew why anyone thought Leno was funny. High fives for COCO.
