What Makes the Conan-TBS Deal So Appealing

Apr 19, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Money and various promises are nice, but it’s not what makes the Conan O’Brien-TBS so appealing, writes Bill Carter in the New York Times.

The correct answer, according to the article, is that TBS has a "a substantial and remarkably young audience.TBS is almost always among the top cable networks in terms of total audience. It is also the No. 1 cable channel among viewers ages 18 to 34, an audience segment highly prized by many advertisers and the one that provides the core viewers for Mr. O’Brien."


  1. Yeah, just what 18-34 adults want: a 40-something quirky comedian who’s demonstrably less funny than a 63-year-old weatherman-turned-comedian. I’m predicting a massive tune-in to Hulu reruns of Family Guy and South Park. Or reruns of The Office on Fox affiliates.
