President Barack Obama’s visit to the “Late Show With David Letterman” Tuesday night gave the CBS broadcast its best overnight rating in more than two and a half years.

The episode averaged a 4.0/10 in Nielsen’s 56 overnight market, up 60% from its year-to-date Tuesday average, reports The last time the show saw better ratings was February 9, 2010, when Jennifer Garner, singer Sade and model Brooklyn Decker made appearances and drew a 4.3/10.

Last night’s show was Obama’s seventh visit to the Ed Sullivan Theater, and his second since taking office.

The “Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson” followed and also had its best overnight rating since February 9, 2010, earning a 1.9/7, a 58% uptick from its Tuesday average this year.

  1. What do you expect? MY President is well loved by late night viewers. President Obama’s ‘haters’ are having major fits on this article, because their “so-called hero” GWB, was not invited to the late night talk shows, while he was in the White House(I wonder why?).
