Conan Show Reduced To Weekly Broadcasts

The Conan Show on TBS and CTV will be reduced to a weekly airing, time to be determined.

The cause of this is due to low ratings, naturally.

I guess NBC was right to replace him  with Jay.

Perhaps if Conan wanted higher ratings he should stop bashing Trump.

If Rush Limbaugh (Talk Radio) can be  blamed for the Oklahoma City Bombing, don't we have to blame the late night so-called comics for this ...

Re: Conan Show Reduced To Weekly Broadcasts

The guy in charge of TBS, the originating network, strongly denies the report and says "it's business as usual" with Conan - for now. But if you read between the lines, well, just remember what I discovered in broadcasting. When upper management tells you the station you're at is absolutely, positively, indisputably not for sale, expect it to be in new hands in six months.

(Sorry for the delay in response...I would like to respond more frequently but I have other things that I have to this site by the way.)

[size=125]Thanks for the update Aflem. 
But the damage to Conan is done.
Twelve million a year for under 700 00 viewers?  I'm in the wrong business.
He's gone.
