As many of you already know, Conan O'Brien's new late night talk show, Conan, aired on TBS, and it was great! What you might not have known is that 4.15 million people tuned in to watch his glorious return!
He ended up beating the hell out of Jay Leno's The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert!
Is NBC kicking their own asses right now for doing what they did to Conan? You bet they are! I just can't help but laugh at this awesomeness.
Here are the numbers:
- Conan - 4.15 million, 3,285,000 adults 18-49
- The Tonight Show with Jay Leno – 3.5 million, 952,000 in 18-4
- Late Night with David Letterman – 3.4 million; 1.3 million in 18-49
- The Daily Show with Jon Stewart – 1.3 million (down 13%); 690,000 in 18-49
- The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert – 1 million (down 12%); 550,000 in 18-49
The question is will he be able to retain those numbers? I thought the show was great, and I'll still continue to tune in. Will you?
