Obamas Leno show appearance rated fourth highest in 15 years of hostingMarch 21st, 2009 - 2:42 pm ICT by ANI
New York, March 21 (ANI): Barack Obamas appearance on Tonight Show has gathered one of the fourth highest rankings in Jay Lenos 15 years of hosting.
According to Preliminary Nielsen figures, the last time the show had such tremendous success was on May 14, 1998, the night that saw the “Seinfeld” finale, reports the New York Daily News.
Meanwhile, the president has some fans to woo back after taking a dig on his 129 bowling score by comparing it to something from the Special Olympics.
Obama had told Leno that despite practicing at the White House’’s bowling alley he landed with the unimpressive score.
He then said: “It was like the Special Olympics or something.”
The 47-year-old later apologised to the chairman of the Special Olympics for equating his bowling skills to those of athletes with disabilities. (ANI)
