Jimmy Fallon Ratings Start Strong

Jimmy Fallon capped off a strong first week at the Tonight Show desk on Friday night, averaging 8.8 million viewers -- despite a shrinking audience for NBC's Sochi Olympics coverage.

With fall five days of Fallon's first week as the Tonight host now accounted for, the series pulled a nightly average of 8.5 million viewers, according to THR.

That's more than double the prior season-to-date average and makes it the most-watched week since the Cheers send-off drove NBC to highs in 1993.

Among adults 18-49, Fallon averaged a 2.8 rating through Friday. With adults under 50, Tonight earned its best week since 2005.
