    His goofy (fake?) laugh was brutal.

    It will end up being one of the top-rated shows on cable for the week, but that's no surprise. Last week, some of the top shows were Monday Night Football (7.4 Household), The Walking Dead (3.1 Household), WWE Raw (2.8 Household) and Pawn Stars (2.6 Household).
    You're mixing up two different ratings. The 2.8 Household rating is not the same measurement as the 1.0 adults 18-49 for Leno that I posted earlier. We'll have to wait until later today to see what his 18-49 numbers were.

    You're right. My wife's business partner moved away so they disbanded their business. Thanks for looking, though.

    I only listed those because primetime cable ratings are the easiest to find. If you're just comparing Conan against other late-night cable shows, I'm sure it would be at the top of the list. I was simply trying to give an example of what other basic cable shows garnered similar ratings (regardless of timeslot).

    Preparation H guy should drive those numbers upward.

    I find Andy to be quite humorous. His intentionally jarring style of humor keeps the show from being too centered on Conan's physical antics.

    I've always liked Richter, but I think he's great as Conan's sidekick. It's nice to have a guest host who actually contributes funny stuff here and there instead of just announcing the host's name, chuckling on mic and taking up space.

    Looks like the Adults 18-49 rating is 2.5, which is astonishing. It basically means that the vast majority of his audience is in the key demographic, unlike shows like Leno and Letterman that get lots of older viewers but not huge numbers in the key demo.

    Why should it be astonishing? Conan has always appealed to a younger demo. My 27 year old son would never consider watching Letterman or Leno, but he watches Conan.

    Well, it's just a big 18-49 rating. I'm not surprised that a vast majority of Conan's audience is young. I'm surprised that it was that big. That 2.5 rating for adults 18-49 beat everything that aired on NBC in primetime on Monday night.

    It will be interesting to see where his ratings stabilize after the first couple of weeks.

    I dont think so - I think Conan has such a strong following he would have been successful even just doing a web based show. Me personally, I recorded Conan and watched the daily show live (since it is only a half hour and I usually skip his interview segment). Then I could watch Conan right after with no commercials. Perfect!

    Also, for us with Directv on the west coast, I get Daily Show and Conan at 8 pm. So if I really wanted to I could still watch Leno/letterman no problem on my local channel (but who would want to do that)? ;)

    I don't understand what you mean about the 10pm hour.

    He has Tom Hanks tonight. Why wasn't he on last night?

    Otherwise, good first act. I was happy to see Masturbating Bear found a new job.

    And it's nice to see him sitting on the couch for the whole show, the way a sidekick should. On "The Tonight Show," he was behind the podium most of the time, except for certain comedy bits where he'd be on the couch -- and then he'd go back to the podium for the guest interviews, which looked awkward and bizarre.

    The audience seating area looks relatively small, so I'll bet it's going to be tough to get tickets (or get into the show if you manage to get tickets, since I'm sure they'll distribute above capacity).

    I read something about his new studio last week. The article was saying how this was a smaller, more intimate venue. But then it said that his theater at The Tonight Show sat about 300 people, and that his new theater seats 250. So it didn't seem like that was a big enough difference to make a big deal about. But I guess the seating area is slanted at a steeper rake so the audience feels closer to the stage and more involved in the show.
