The Friday night appearance of President Joe Biden on Jimmy Fallon’s couch goosed the last night show’s ratings in several areas.
It was the 79-year-old Biden’s first appearance as president on the show, although he did appear previously when he was the outgoing vice president. The interview was non-confrontational, and Biden mostly avoided getting tongue-tied. The segments were pre-taped.
Overall, the show drew 1.9 million viewers, the show’s highest total since February 5. In the coveted 18-49 demos, the show had an 0.28 rating, its best since Oct. 1.
From Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group and Broadway Video, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Jamie Granet-Bederman, Nedaa Sweiss and Gerard Bradford. Granet-Bederman and Sweiss are co-showrunners.
