The election is weeks away, but Late Show With David Letterman can declare a victory of a sort already. President Obama’s appearance last night garnered the show its best overnight rating in more than two and a half years. Tuesday’s show averaged a 4.0/10 in Nielsen’s 56 overnight market, up 60% from its year-to-date Tuesday average. The last time the show saw better ratings was February 9, 2010, when Jennifer Garner, singer Sade and model Brooklyn Decker made appearances and drew a 4.3/10. Last night’s show was Obama’s seventh visit to the Ed Sullivan Theater, and his second since taking office. The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson followed and also had its best overnight rating since February 9, 2010, earning a 1.9/7, a 58% uptick from its Tuesday average this year.
