Re: Conan falls, Leno still #1

I have to admit I generally choose The Daily Show over Conan at 11PM, I may switch over but I usually start that way for sure. Especially because the Stewart open is the best part of the show. I'm not so sure jump starting at 11 is actually an advantage, I think Conan would be better served going neck-to-neck with the others most similar to him.

Re: Conan falls, Leno still #1

The late news (11pm EST) is still a pretty big draw for local affiliates of ABC, NBC and CBS then you have The Daily Show which has more in common with Nightline than other late night talk shows also on at 11pm.

The only way you get a truly accurate rating is to have Conan airing in the 11:35pm EST slot directly against The Tonight Show and The Late Show.

Jay Leno will always beat Conan in Dorito eating contests.

Yeah, I always watch The Daily Show and Colbert, but if I'm still up I'll watch the 1:00 AM rerun of Conan's show. Even though the ratings pressure is a lot less on TBS, I hope they take the 1:00 AM slot and online viewings on Team Coco into account.

Re: Conan falls, Leno still #1

I adore Conan, and was looking forward to the show, but I find it too hard to turn away from The Daily Show and Colbert.

Re: Conan falls, Leno still #1

Also, remember that these numbers ONLY include the late night, first run of The Daily Show. If you could the repeats throughout the day, The Daily Show is doing amazingly well.

As tired as I am of Conan fan boys spinning the numbers in his favor, in all fairness he is on cable. It isn't realistic to expect him to beat Leno.

Re: Conan falls, Leno still #1

I love Conan, and was DVRing every episode for the first couple months or so, but frankly it was all starting to feel a bit repetitive after awhile.

Ultimately there's only so much TV I can watch a night, and Stewart and Colbert have both raised the bar so high by this point that I just HAVE to stick with them.

If I can stay awake, my usual routine is to watch all of Conan, then move over to CBS for the last half-hour of Letterman and then as much of Craig Ferguson as I can watch (as he's actually my favorite of all the late-night hosts, by far). The problem is that I have to get up at 5:50 a.m. for work.

Re: Conan falls, Leno still #1

Here are last week's late night ratings.

Good news for Conan fans: He tied Letterman, ratings are up from last week.
Bad news for Conan fans: He still lost to Leno and the Daily Show, Leno still the #1 late night talk show.

Why is this bad news for Conan fans? Conan's on a cable channel, running at the same time as a lot of other popular late night shows, and is still doing rather well.

I think Conan beating Letterman has a lot of good news tied to it. It could convince CBS to put him on if and when Dave retires or drops dead from heart attack while boinking his latest intern in the dungeon room.

I DVR Craig and watch him in the evenings after I get home from work, or the next morning if I'm off.
