Regardless of what you or your Twittering friends thought of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the show's debut was a ratings winner. James Hibberd reports that the show scored a 2.3 in the metered-market household ratings, which is a 35 percent improvement from what Conan O'Brien was averaging. Expect those numbers to drop as the novelty wears off, but still, it's an impressive debut, especially when DVR ratings get factored in. [The Live Feed/HR]
