President Obama’s poll numbers may be down, but he’s still got some major TV mojo.
Monday’s appearance by Obama on CBS’s "Late Show with David Letterman" gave a major boost to Dave, according to preliminary fast national Nielsen date. "Late Show" soared to a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.22 million, nearly tripling Letterman’s usual demo numbers.
"Late Show" had its best overall tune-in since Oprah Winfrey stopped by four years ago and attracted a jaw-dropping 13.46 million viewers.
