Just when I thought this late night talk show saga couldn't get any juicier, Conan O'Brien blows my mind and makes the move to cable. And it is a very, VERY good move.
Since he left broadcast, he tweeted, did some live shows and now he's on basic cable. It should have been the other way around, but I think he's got something here. I was among the hopefuls who thought Leno's move to Primetime would be a success (I admit when I'm wrong). But this is so beyond my comprehension it just may work! It's a much better move than going to Fox, and he'll get to own the show. Plus he's got a half hour lead on Dave and Jay.
Oh God, poor USA, they just might lose the #1 spot in cable on adults 18-49.
The yet-to-be-titled show will air Monday-Thursday in the 11p slot, preceding George Lopez. I'm sure George is psyched about his lead-in. And I've personally thought cable could use a lot more male redheads. David Caruso just isn't enough.
