14.6M watch Obama’s ‘Tonight’ spot

About 14.6 million tuned in to watch U.S. President Barack Obama's appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last week, NBC said Thursday.

The March 19 viewership number represented Leno's biggest audience in nearly 11 years, the network said.

The episode marked the first time a seated U.S. president was interviewed on The Tonight Show.
