Obama Interview Drives 'Late Show With David Letterman' to 2-Year High

Last night's Late Show, which featured a visit from President Barack Obama, saw a huge ratings boost for the talker. It posted its highest overnight rating since February 2010.

STORY: Obama on Letterman: The President Represents the Whole Country

The appearance, which saw the commander-in-chief join the host in poking fun at Clint Eastwood's "empty chair" speech from the Republican National Convention, earned a 4.0 household rating and 10 percent share. That bests the weekly average for last season by 67 percent and the year-to-date Tuesday average by 60 percent.

The show fared especially well in its native New York, where WCBS-TV delivered a whopping 495,000 viewers and a 2.6 rating with adults 25-54. It's the best demo showing in that market since 2006.

Craig Ferguson and the Late Late Show also got an Obama boost. The show, earning a 1.9 rating and seven percent share, also hit a two-year high.

2. Obama was great, Letterman a perfect host. Ferguson made sure he had on his Blue Tie LOL.

Geoff said it matched his eyes, also blue

Love seeing him and Michelle on tv but especially on friendly territory!

4. That was funny.

My wife even asked what color the Prez was wearing. "Was is blue or did it have a little periwinkle in it?"
