Leno's viewership has dropped 0.1 points below Conan O'Brien, who hosted the Tonight Show from June 2009 to January 2010. Recent figures have shown that nearly 34 million viewers, ages 18 - 49, tune in to late night talk shows between 11pm to 1am, according to Nielsen.

Leno has also been losing steam against longtime rival David Letterman. Over the summer, the difference between the two shows was around 800,000 viewers, but now that number has dwindled to a mere 130,000.

As for Conan, the comedian has already begun taping segments for his upcoming TBS show, Conan ... premiering November 8th.
