NEW YORK, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Jimmy Fallon brought in 11.3 million viewers on his first run as host of The Tonight Show.

The numbers aren't quite up to the 14.6 million viewers who tuned in during Jay Leno's last show, but considering the late hour and the smaller Olympics lead-in, it is still a substantial number. According to Fast Official's Monday night ratings, Fallon averaged a rating of 3.8 among adults ages 18-49, which puts him on par with Conan O'Brien's 2009 debut on The Tonight Show. However, Fallon just came shy of O'Brien's 11.9 million viewers.
