Woot!! About time.


Now, I really did like Conan circa 1996-1999. After that it seemed like he was just in a million-dollar holding-pattern, waiting for Leno to clear the runway. Well, despite his Mario-esque background (see Random & Awesome archives), Conan’s flight has crashed and burned. Just hope Letterman doesn’t settle in and get all middle-america now.

Letterman Beats Conan Four Weeks in a Row

Since Conan took over the Tonight Show in June and most elderly folks have started either going to sleep early or watching CBS, every new day brings another ratings milestone for Letterman. Here’s today’s: For the first time in fourteen years, Dave’s Late Show was watched by more people than Tonight over four consecutive weeks, by an average score of 3.38 million to 2.63 million viewers. The wizards in NBC’s publicity department are still touting Conan’s edge among adults 18 to 49 (which apparently increased by 6 percent last week), though we bet that gap will narrow once Jay Leno begins killing all of Conan’s potential L.A.-based guests on his racetrack this fall.
