Post Re: Conan O'Brien News
I'm near-certain the tonight show comes on at 11:35 on the west coast as it does on the east coast. Television is programmed for the coasts. No one cares about the flyover states. They just don't. And while the central and mountain zones may take up a lot of space they are no where near 2/3 of the population of the nation.

Obviously I understand the local news leads in to the tonight show, that's why i mentioned that leno tanked the local news. You have to follow the line through.

Edit: As to the local news being a bad lead in:

Quote:
Overall, local television news continues to dominate the American media landscape. Fully 59% of Americans say they regularly watch the local news in their area.

TBS?
The same station responsible for Frank TV and Lopez Tonight?
Ugh.

Boo!

I really want to larf me some Conan, but dammit, TBS is not a good fit. I do not larf on this channel. Don't get me wrong, syndicated re-runs of the Office and Earl are mostly great, but it's still the television equivalent of TJ Maxx. We've been trained to not go to TBS for quality original material. That's not our fault, that's their doing. It's cheap, easy, and brings in enough money to sustain the channel for the last two decades.

The last thing they ran that held my interest? 2 Stupid Dogs.

I'm thinking in order to properly lead-in to Conan, they'll need to spend some serious cash for programming similar to what's available on Adult Swim. Unfortunately, TBS is probably going to air reruns of the worst show on television, Two and a Half Men.

Fox would have been perfect except for the fact the local channels couldn't make room for it.

You know when a station's slogan is "Very funny.", it probably has some serious self-esteem issues.

Man. I don't think I've ever completely disagreed with a you guys more.

TBS is a perfectly fine channel and two and a half men is hilarious. George Lopez cracks me up, but I honestly can't say I've ever watched his talk show, but his standup, interviews, and sitcom were funny. There is some internet hatred going on up in here.

TBS is worth watching from 8 AM-9 AM. They show a little program called Saved By the Bell during that time.
But sometimes they show The College Years. Jerks.

The s**t was huge with Hispanics for a while. I know, I married into a hispanic family. I thought it was pretty funny, for what it was. I have very low expectations for most "sitcoms" anyway.

Awesome interview, much more lighthearted than the one for 60 minutes.

Caught it last night right before I passed out, and I'm ready for it to come on in a matter of minutes this evening. I thought the first episode was slightly lacking, but still have high hopes for this new outlet!

I was personally hoping for it to be a departure from the usual "monologue, skit, guest, guest, musical act" formula. Conan is so good when he does more improvisational humor, or when he does unscripted stuff like his various field trips, etc.

I want to see a return of desk driving!

I agree entirely DoomBot, I was kinda disappointed to see that it is a lot of the same style. Hopefully coco will branch off a bit more once the show has been established.

I'm hoping he has just been "playing it safe" because TBS is being nervous about venturing into something new. In a few months, if the audience stays with him, hopefully he can come back out of his shell. Right now he's like the new employee and he doesn't want to extend himself too much.
