A very quick heads up for Late Night fans...Conan O'Brien returns tonight after less than a year: (TBS at 11pm). For those who followed the trials and tribulations of Team Coco, the (now) bearded one was kicked off as the host of the Tonight Show and quite rudely replaced by Jay Leno, who, along with NBC, found Prime Time to be a very inhospitable place for a late night comedy/variety show. The booting of Coco caused an outpouring of grief, especially among his core demographic (Men 18-34), who mostly don't watch television anyway, so were probably in part responsible for his Peacock Network demise.
Will he fare better on TBS? Will basic cable prove more friendly to Conan's quirky brand of humor than a traditional network? How many people think Fox would have been a better fit?
The only thing I know for sure is that there will be plenty of DVR's humming. A DVR recording search is probably the only way a young male viewer could even find TBS. Now that I think of it, Conan should have just brought his new show to YouTube! What do you think?
