Monday Ratings: Kanye and Jay are Gold Diggers

Kanye West on Jay Leno

Curiosity about ‘s new program was already high before this week—but then the VMAs happened, and the Peacock network lucked out.

The debut of NBC’s new 10:00 show was watched by a whopping 17.7 million viewers. That’s nearly double the audience that turned in for Leno’s “goodbye.” (That May finale drew in 11.9 million). The figure bests any number from an NBC series produced last season, including the premiere of Conan O’Brien’s show (9.2 million) in June.
