Though there was the inevitable drop-off from his big Tonight premiere, Jimmy Fallon‘s second night as host proved a big one for NBC.
Fast Official returns give Tonight 7.366 million viewers, its most-watched Tuesday broadcast since 2000. Tonight continued to ride the wave of a strong Winter Olympics lead-in, though Tuesday’s proved much smaller than Monday’s.
