NEW YORK – Late-night mainstay Conan O'Brien is headed to TBS to resume his comedic duties with a talk show expected to debut in November, the network said Monday.
The program will air Mondays through Thursdays at 11 p.m. Eastern, shifting TBS' "Lopez Tonight," starring George Lopez, to midnight.
O'Brien quickly fired out a celebratory tweet.
"The good news: I will be doing a show on TBS starting in November! The bad news: I'll be playing Rudy on the all new Cosby Show," he posted Monday on Twitter.
The surprise announcement hit the same day O'Brien starts a two-month, nationwide comedy tour in Eugene, Ore., amid persistent reports that he was likely to claim Fox as his new late-night home.
Barring Fox, syndication was widely considered O'Brien's most likely option. Few if anyone mentioned TBS as a plausible destination.
O'Brien began serious talks with TBS just last week, the network said.
"In three months, I've gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I'm headed to basic cable," O'Brien said in a tongue-in-cheek-toned statement. "My plan is working perfectly."
O'Brien left NBC in January after hosting "The Tonight Show" for just eight months, as his ratings plunged from those of his longtime "Tonight" predecessor, Jay Leno, who reclaimed the hour. Until last June, O'Brien had followed Leno as host of "Late Night" since 1993.
After giving O'Brien "Tonight," NBC sought to keep Leno on board with a prime-time show that quickly flopped. An attempt to move O'Brien to a post-midnight slot drew O'Brien's ire, and he walked away with a $32 million settlement package.
Although that put him in play for other networks, the deal barred him from appearing on TV until September.

What a disaster. From The Tonight Show to TBS. The obvious reason why he didn't go to Fox is that he would have failed even more badly than he did on the Tonight Show. His ratings were terrible when the only competition was Letterman. Imagine how bad they would be if he had to go against both Letterman AND Leno at the same time.

The advantages of basic cable is the ability to get away with more stuff than network TV. So good idea Conan.

Conan O'Brien says he'll bring his trademark gags over to his new TBS show, which premieres Nov. 8.

"If there's something we did for a long time that we've established as ours, we'll figure out a way to do it," O'Brien tells Rolling Stone. "I won't be denied my Masturbating Bear!"
"What I really wanna do," O'Brien added, "is be sued over the bear and then appear in court with the Masturbating Bear. 'Your Honor, this bear can't help himself!' "

O'Brien also opens up about his short-lived stint as host of the Tonight Show.

"Knowing what I know, I'm quite confident that what happened really didn't have much at all to do with what I was doing," O'Brien said. "That's not to say that my show was perfect… But given the situation, I don't think, even if I had done a radically different show, anything would have been different."

O'Brien said he went easy on Jay Leno, whose ratings have dipped below his in the coveted 18-49 demo since he returned to air.

"If you look at the tapes, I probably made three jokes about him," O'Brien said, "Which I think I was entitled to do. But I was very careful not to go to town."

The two weeks that it was rumored he would be replaced by Leno made him "feel like, 'OK, I'm going to go for broke. I have got nothing to lose.' Let's face it: I'm not going to do another television show after this one.

"There were times when I've told myself, 'Maybe I could have gone on and done 'The Tonight Show' for 15 years, but never had the impact that I had doing those last six shows,' " O'Brien went on. "So maybe that moment's a gift."

Good first show, but not great. The girl from Glee was a bit annoying to me. There is probably a problem that I have with just not being all that interested in anything that Jack White is involved with. He's a chill guy.

Conan just barely beat the networks' ratings except he was on TBS.

Conan received a 2.8 rating from Nielsen.
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno was slightly behind Conan with a 2.7 rating.
Late Show with David Letterman received a 2.5 rating.

And the now other popular cable late night talk show:
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart earned a 1.5 rating.

As far as Neilsen ratings go, how do they measure it with recording shows on DVRs? Does it count as being viewed just from recording it, or not until I actually watch it?

sbessiso
11-09-2010, 11:52 AM
This was the premiere though so of course the ratings would be big. Give it a week to balance out. I would love for him to keep scoring big but that doesnt seem likely. It IS TBS

if you are a Neisen house, I think they take into account DVR watching now. If you are not a Neisen house, you are not a factor in ratings.

The stage is actually pretty big. He wanted the set to have a more intimate feel. Also, I think it's a more attractive set than either of his previous shows had, but maybe I'm a little biased on this.

I think it's starting off really well. Nothing too out of this world but it really does feel more like "Late Night". I like that he's the underdog again, especially being on TBS.
