Fans Going CoCo for Tonight’s Conan Debut

While Los Angeles pines for an NFL team to come back, we should feel proud that Conan O’Brien didn’t retreat back to New York after his Tonight Show gig was abruptly cancelled.

Conan’s return to broadcast television at 11pm will be beamed from the site of his new studio on Burbank’s Warner Brothers lot, where fans waited outside in the rain as early as 7am for a chance to be part of the audience (see pic).

Does anyone have any doubts that he’ll not only beat Jay Leno in the ratings, but also Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert?

  1. “Does anyone have any doubts that he’ll not only beat Jay Leno in the ratings, but also Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert?”

    Perhaps for the first few weeks. But yes, I doubt that in the long run. But ratings like that on TBS are much bigger for them than a similar rating would be on NBC. Let’s see if all these people who never talked about Conan before NBC cancelled him that proudly declared they were “Team Coco” are watching 6 months from now.
