Obama Scores for Leno

LenoObama_3.20.JPGPresident Barack Obama‘s stint on the Tonight Show last night helped give Jay Leno his fourth most-watched show in his 16 years as host.

The show averaged an 11.2 metered-market household rating at 11:35pm, according to Nielsen. It trailed Leno’s debut and the shows that aired after the finales of “Cheers” and “Seinfeld” in the 1990s.
