Is Jimmy Fallon’s social success fueling his strong ratings?

3026676-inline-tngtpostbrooklynbridge020614There was certainly a good chance that Jimmy Fallon’s early ratings success would be largely attributable to the Olympics bump he got during his first week as host of ‘The Tonight Show’ and that the numbers would soon come back down to earth. Nearly a full month after the Olympics, though, Fallon has maintained extremely strong numbers overall, with 4.26 million viewers, and especially compared to Jimmy Kimmel’s 2.83 million and David Letterman’s 2.79 million (March 10-14).

It remains difficult to directly measure the impact of social media on ratings, but Fallon’s social proficiency makes it hard to cast aside as an explanation for his steady linear TV numbers. uberVU, a social analytics company recently acquired by HootSuite, provided Lost Remote exclusively with numbers for March 11-20 showing what ‘Tonight Show’ segments are resonating most with fans across Twitter and helping Fallon continue to win the late night battle.

How Jimmy Fallon is winning the late night battle online

3026676-inline-tngtpostbrooklynbridge020614Jimmy Fallon’s first week as ‘Tonight Show’ host brought in a nightly average of 8.5 million viewers for NBC, the best week for the late night show since 1993. Heading into the third week of the show, Fallon still has a strong lead over Jimmy Kimmel and David Letterman, but Kimmel made a big jump on Monday with Toronto mayor Rob Ford as a guest.

According to Kontera, a company that measures Internet content and social media impressions, online consumption about Fallon increased 154% (comparing February 17-26 to February 7-16). Fallon’s lead is significant, as there was 167% more consumption around Fallon than his competitors. It is easy to attribute part of Fallon‘s ratings success to the 2014 Olympics lead-in he enjoyed, but online consumption is a different matter. Read more
