Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin clobbered former President Bill Clinton in the ratings on Wednesday night.
Palin’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show helped the show lead Wednesday’s late-night ratings with a 3.0/7, which was followed by Bill Murray’s appearance on CBS’ Late Show with a 2.5/6. Then came Bill Clinton’s appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live with a 2.4/6.
According to Deadline, the adult 18-49 demographic results were: Tonight at 1.1/5, Late Show at 0.5/2, and Kimmel at 0.8/4.
During her cameo, Palin participated in a skit with Fallon in which Fallon played Vladimir Putin and reminded the audience that Palin had predicted that Putin may invade Ukraine if Obama became president.
The clip of the skit has gone viral, having been viewed nearly 1.2 million times on YouTube in less than two days. Meanwhile, none of Clinton’s three segments with Kimmel has even been viewed 150,000 times.
