    Maybe I'm wrong, since I skipped through it, but didn't Harrison Ford talk about his blimp experience here too?? He definitely talked about it on Letterman recently. If I'm remembering correctly, it does seem weird to have the same discussions on multiple talk shows so close to each other. (Though there have been other times when I've seen others, I think Robin Williams, talk about the same stories as being very recent events on different talk shows years apart -- and no, I don't mean during standup bits.. talking conversationally on the couch.. and not in the "host starts the story and standup does stand up while sitting down" type..)

    Harrison Ford only said 18 words the entire interview. Boring.

    And yeah he did say a little about the blimp but only because Conan was talking about his blimp.

    It kind of made me think he was hopped up (or down) on "medication". I thought he was acting very strange.

    Ford was entertaining and seemed to enjoy himself on The Daily Show the other day at least.

    It was jarring to actually hear Harrison Ford say "Sh1t and Die" without an edit though. Yeah it's cable, and it was pretty funny, but it did catch me off guard.

    Exactly what I was thinking while watching it. Especially the way he kept nervously caressing the arm of his chair.

    So, he's had a few weeks.

    What are the ratings doing now?

    I have to confess that after watching the first week, I stopped watching. I guess that a change of venue hasn't made me like him any more. Still some good stuff and some stuff that didn't work for me. Mostly, just not compelling TV.

    I think he's settled into about a 1.0 rating (adults 18-49). Leno over the past several months has been averaging a 0.9 and Letterman is between a 0.8 and 0.9. The size of Conan's audience is much smaller than Leno's or Letterman's, but because a much larger percentage of Conan's audience falls within the target demographic, his 18-49 ratings have been very good.

    How is he doing against Jon Stewart.

    I'm generally not up for either of them, but TiVo both.

    During Conan's second full week (Nov. 15-18), Conan averaged 1.7 million viewers, with 1.3 million in the 18-49 range. Stewart averaged 1.5 million viewers with 800k in the 18.49 range. Numbers are not yet available for the week of Thanksgiving, and The Daily Show was in repeats that week anyway.

    I'm surprised by Stewart's demographic share relative to his total. I wouldn't have imagined that he would pick that many older viewers (or kids?!)...

    I set up an SP for his new show, and I hadn't done so for any of his previous ones (I just watched when I happened upon it).

    My routine now is that I watch his monologue from the night before, and then only watch the rest if I care about the guests or musical act.

    Just over 1 million in A18-49 for the third week, per a press release from today. That would be a 0.8-0.9 rating.

    Way annoying, this week has no guest info. Letterman's the only one I 'watch' regularly (though even with that I've lately been listening to just the audio on my iPhone and then skimming through for the visual jokes later).. I record the others for relatively rare funny bits and musical guests.

    Just finished The War for Late Night book. Great read if you are interested in the late night drama. It's almost shocking how Bill Carter was able to get so many insiders on the record about their perspective on how things went down. It reinforced a lot of the thoughts I already had, but you see how human (/flawed) everybody involved is. Including the viewers. In the end, Leno's pay and play deal combined with Conan's lack of time protection at 11:35 was really the key factor in how things turned out. Conan didn't wind up at Fox because although several guys were desparately trying to make it happen, Murdoch and other old guys at Fox just didn't get his humor enough to make it happen.

    I think the Conan show is really starting to get good. Much better than the first few weeks. MORE BRIAN MCCANN and comedy bits!!! And less of Conan trying to kiss everybody's ass that comes on the show.

    It's getting better. But if I hear him say one more time that he's the only talk show host in the history of the medium to have his own blimp, I'm going to put a shotgun round through my TV.

    What's interesting is that the second guests have been outpacing the first ones lately (Chris Colfer comes to mind). I FFed right on through most of last night's ep, too. Charles Barkley and Dr. Drew? Really?

    It's so weird how different people's perspectives are. I thought Barkley and Dr. Drew were pretty good guests. Barkley was cool, Dr. Drew was interesting.

    I wish Conan would shave the beard. It makes me think he's still depressed and upset over the Tonight Show debacle.
