Sarah Palin On Leno Outdraws Mitt Romney On Letterman

Posted: Updated:

If Tuesday night's late night ratings are any indication, Sarah Palin remains a bigger draw than Mitt Romney.

In what was seen as a "Late Night GOP War," David Letterman's "Late Show" booked Romney to go against Palin on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show."

In Leno's second night back at NBC's late-night franchise, he and Palin easily outdrew Romney and Letterman.

The "Tonight Show" averaged 5.8 million total viewers (1.6 A18-49 rating) compared to Letterman's 3.7 million total viewers (1.0 A18-49 rating).

Both shows outdrew "Nightline," which averaged 3.3 million total viewers (0.9 A18-49 rating) from 11:35PM-12:05AM.

Leno's return Monday averaged 6.6 million total viewers.
