Conan O’Brien got some sweet revenge Monday night, when the debut episode of his TBS talk show Conan crushed Jay Leno’s Tonight Show in the ratings.
The Hollywood Reporter announced that Conan attracted 4.2 million viewers, compared to the 3.5 million who tuned into Leno. Conan also beat David Letterman, who had only 3.4 million viewers, as well as Comedy Central’s Daily Show and Colbert Report. Of course, it’s no shock that he won in the ratings, but the real question is whether he can keep it up over time.
What do you think?
