Could Conan Land on Cable?

Jan 18, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Add a cable network to the list of those who’d like to offer a new home to NBC’s Conan O’Brien, B&C reports.

FX Networks head John Landgraf said he’d jump at an O’Brien show for his network “in a heartbeat," although he acknowledged that the economics of such a move probably made more sense for a broadcast network. Sister Fox network has already expressed interest in O’Brien, although Fox affiliates might have a hard time clearing their late-night schedules of the syndicated shows they now run.

  1. the best conan option could be cable. and viacom&sumner could be big winners! conan in a looser, livelier version, like things used to be would be perfect late night across a ‘multiplex’ of mtv networks like comedy central with a stewart/colbert leadin, vh1, mtvu/mtv2, and even spike, not to mention mtv’s international distribution. they would hit all the demo’s, the audience would be there and conan would be somewhere he is appreciated!!!!!
