Letterman Tops Leno in November Sweeps Ratings

It had been a long time (Think, three years before Monica Lewinsky and her blue dress were the late night fodder of choice) since David Letterman beat Jay Leno in the coveted 18-49 demographic in November sweeps. But for the first time in 17 years, Letterman did just that last month. The Late Show averaged a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demo to The Tonight Show‘s 0.8 in November. Leno, however, still averaged roughly 200,000 more overall viewers than Letterman. But they were old and infirmed and lacked buying power!

Both hosts, per usual, were crushed by Nightline.
