Ratings: Conan's Tonight Show, MTV Movie Awards and More

Heeeeeeeeeeere's Conan!

Some recent ratings highlights:

• The premiere of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien delivered the best numbers (a 7.1/17 rating) for a Monday Tonight Show in more than four years, and the seventh-highest Monday overnights for Tonight since Jay Leno took over as host in 1992. 

Compared to his final Late Night broadcast, Conan's audience was up 173 percent. (Read Mickey O'Connor's "snap judgement" of Conan's Tonight Show.)

• The 2009 MTV Movie Awards averaged 5.3 million total viewers, a year-to-year increase of 73 percent and the show's biggest audience since 2004.

• On Saturday night, Harper's Island held steady at 3.85 mil, and Pushing Daisies returned to an audience of 2.35 mil.

• Across the pond, the season finale of Britain's Got Talent — in which the dance troupe Diversity bested Susan Boyle — drew 17.3 million viewers, or 72 percent of the U.K. television audience. That represents a 32 percent gain over the competition's previous finale.

To hear host Andy Samberg's head writer, Scott Aukerman, tell it, not at all.

Ending nearly 24 hours of silence from all involved parties, Aukerman took to his blog to set the record straight: "Yes, the Eminem-Bruno incident was staged. They rehearsed it at dress [rehearsal] and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show."

As previously reported, Cohen's "Bruno" alter ego ... read more

Eminem Meets Bruno's Crotch, Leaves Movie Awards

Eminem

Never butt into Eminem at an awards show — especially not with your butt.

The rapper, who had an infamous encounter with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog at the 2002 Video Music Awards, was in no mood to get cheeky with Sacha Baron Cohen's flamboyant alter ego, Bruno, at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. Baron Cohen, wearing angel wings and a scanty thong, descended on wires and staged a crash-landing upside-down onto Eminem.
