Fallon’s ‘Tonight’ Show Draws 11.3M

Monday’s premiere of the first New York-based “Tonight” show in 42 years brought in 11.3 million viewers, the second-largest audience for the show since the first farewell “Tonight” show for Jay Leno in 2009. (The biggest total since 2009 was Mr. Leno’s second, and apparently final, finale earlier this month.) NBC also had reason to celebrate how well Mr. Fallon did with viewers who bring in premium advertising rates for late-night television. The premiere averaged a 3.8 rating among viewers between the ages of 18 and 49, a number that eclipsed every prime-time show on ABC, CBS and Fox last week/New York Times. More here.

Question: Did you watch the premier of Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight" show? Thoughts?
