    I thought I'd post a reminder that Conan O'Brien's new show premieres monday night, 11 pm, on TBS.

    No TBS on my current DirecTV package, so I won't be watching.

    It would seem that if even half the "CoCo" crowd watches, this would be the biggest hit in cable history. I guess the ratings will show if most of those are really supporters or just hopping on the bandwagon.

    I don't do late night anymore, but I might have to TiVo this one just to see what he does...

    What is the format of this show?

    Is it like Leno or Letterman or is he doing something different?

    I've got it set to record, but I noticed that due to the fact that here in Arizona we get the Pacific feed of TBS, and (during the winter) we're an hour earlier than PST, we won't get Conan's show until midnight. In most places, they'll get Conan at 11 pm and then Leno/Letterman start at 11:35. Here in the MST, we get Leno/Conan at 10:35 and won't get Conan until midnight.

    Makes it easier to record all the late-night shows without conflicts when they air like that.

    Sounds like a typical late night show but I am sure there will be a few surprises thrown in for good measure. I've got it set to record as well.

    Really? I thought TBS was part of the most basic package.

    I really don't do late night either, but maybe I will setup a SP or something just to see if there is anything cool about his first show.

    Probably their most basic advertised package. We use Family. It covers the kids channels (Disney, Nick, etc.) and those are really the only cable channels we need. My wife watched "Army Wives" on Lifetime's site and we watched "Rescue Me" on Hulu.

    I am excited. I was a fan well before there was even talk of him going to TTS and felt really peeved with NBC's management of the whole mess.

    Glad he'll be back on.

    I am so happy Conan is back!! I have had today marked on my calendar for a while.

    **Cue old people commenting that late night shows haven't been funny since the 1930s (and also SNL has not been funny since Chevy left)**

    I've been watching Conan since September 13, 1993, when I was in college, and am actually feeling a little bit like I'm an "old person" relative to the target audience for the new show. That's probably because of all the promotion they've been doing on social media. I do use social media, but -- for example -- I never got in on any of the 1,000-free-shirts-a-day giveaways they were doing for the last 10 days on Twitter. I was too slow. I don't have Twitter wired directly into my brain the way all the kids do these days.

    I think he tanks after an initial few nights of decent ratings. going up against The Daily Show at 11pmEST is suicide in the demographic he's after (18-42), and the 10pm hour negates the older crowd from tuning in compared to Leno/Letterman.

    Define "tanks". How hard will it really be to be the best show on TBS :)
