President Obama is the hottest celebrity on TV these days.
His visit to Jay Leno on the “Tonight” show appear to have produced the program’s biggest Wednesday crowd since the week Leno returned to host the NBC late-night franchise — after the network booted Conan O’Brien.
Nielsen issued only metered-market household numbers; final stats will be available next week.
Meanwhile, Obama’s visit to the Comedy Central faux-news program “The Daily Show” a week ago Thursday snagged nearly 3 million viewers, making that week “The Daily Show’s” most watched all year.
Obama’s next stop: MTV, Friday at 5 p.m. ET, when he will take questions from college students.
