I knew my fellow Americans had taste after all.....
According to a story on Drudge, Conan's 'TONIGHT' ratings drop with every episode...
There is hope for our country....
...... Conan O'Brien's first week behind NBC's "Tonight Show" desk resulted in a strong overall ratings performance that dominated competitors and left critics generally pleased.
But after debuting to record-setting numbers Monday, The Tonight Show audience has shrunk with each successive episode......

Yea, Conan was not the right choice....Should have kept Leno until he croaked.
I can’t be bothered to watch this so can someone who is tougher than me explain how Conan O’Brien is objectionable?
Haven’t watched any Late Night shows in years. Is Conan as bad as Letterman?
Although Leno was something of a liberal, he was still funny. Conan ain’t funny. He has never been funny.
I don’t like to kick a man when he’s down, but Conan’s first few episodes were tedious. The only times I laughed were when he recycled a few Jay Leno jokes. Maybe he’ll grow on the job, but I’m skeptical.
As wit has been replaced by zaniness, I’ve found all of these comedy shows uninteresting.
I cant be bothered to watch this so can someone who is tougher than me explain how Conan OBrien is objectionable?
I don’t find Conan OBrien objectionable...I find him unfunny and irritating...the voice, the hair, the whole thing...OK, I guess I do find him objectionable, in that I object to his being on TV...
He is worser than Letterman.
Sorry, I can't be bothered to explain.
How’s that taste, Immelt?
Conan is a no-talent who is stuck on himself. I don’t like how he jokes about Jesus.
“Maybe hell grow on the job,”
Like a boil?
Conan is part of a ‘new’ generation. However, the new generation does not watch late-night tv.
As wit has been replaced by zaniness, Ive found all of these comedy shows uninteresting.
Jack Paar to Johnny then......not funny...
With Conan, it is always about him.
He is like watching an ADHD on steroids.
He is also nuts, why would he leave New York for LA
Hows that taste, Immelt?
I am so glad I gave up on all these people after Johnny left. I know I have missed nothing.
My thoughts too.
I will not watch that crap anyway because it is NBC and NBC is also MSNBC. They are GE companies and they love Obama. I backed $180 billion in GE debt - with your tax money. GE is a slimy company.
He’s not funny. They should have put Craig Ferguson in the Tonight Show slot - now he’s a riot!
Conan’s opening show was great. I liked the running across America with the music, it worked. Watched his opening that night and it fell.
Watched another episode the other night and it was awful. He is just plain weird, not funny at all. His people put together an occasional funny clip, but that does not include him
Johnny Carson would have some of the strangest people on his show, but he still showed them respect as people.
Whenever I’ve watched O’Brien or Letterman, I’ve gotten the feeling they were making fun of their guests.
I stopped when Carson left too
Jack Paar to Johnny then......not funny...
That’s about it.
“I dont like to kick a man when hes down”
Why not? If you let him up he might kill you...
Johhny was pretty funny for a liberal - and he did donate to reagan. Leno, Ferguson, Letterman and Conan - all liberals.
They do, but it's stuff like uncut episodes of Family Guy on Cartoon Network that they're watching.
Should have been BORAT doing the show ...
I haven’t really watched any of these shows in years. I used to watch Letterman years ago (back when it was Paul Schaeffer and the World’s Most Dangerous Band), but Letterman just got progressively worse...more openly leftist, and more just plain un-funny. Never cared for Leno much anyway, but he could be funny. Conan O’Brian just irritates me. Always has. Bizarre.
Now, I have caught Craig Ferguson a few times. He’s freakin’ hilarious.
I agree, but in TV it' all about the coveted 18-39 demographic, especially the male 18-39 demographic. And, while Leno was the ratings king, his ideal demographic ratings were just OK. NBC is going to learn that sometimes less-than-ideal ratings are better than weak ratings.
It's like the TV show "Heroes". I don't believe that Heroe's is in the top 25 seasonal ratings, but it commands the 5th highest per-minute commercial rate because of it's demographic appeal. Apparently a 50 year-old's dollar isn't worth as much as a 20 year-old's.
Time to bring back Chevy Chase.
But seriously, you've been a great host ... for me to poop on!
But Conan keeps his politics to himself and skewers everyone.
On the other hand, Leno, Letterman and Stewart wear their insane liberalism on their sleeves on every show.
Craig Ferguson is one of the few I will watch for anything other than the musical guest (Thank God for Tivo). And actually I only watch because he has Kristen Bell on fairly regularly. But he has been pretty funny everytime I watched.
Sadly, it is possible. Conan is much worse than Letterman, who is also really crappy...
I can believe that. A friend told me today that he recently saw a bunch of 20-somethings camping out to buy $200 pairs of shoes endorsed by some (c)rap “star.” Guess the economy isn’t as bad as I thought.
You're grammar is wrong. It should read: He is MORE worser than Letterman..
Amen. I haven’t cared about late-night programming since Johnny Carson left. It didn’t have the same “rat-pack” glamor after that.
I watched a few minutes strictly by accident.
Conan’s arse-kissing has reached new depths and he is simply not funny.
I switch the channel directly after the local news at 11:30pm. I understand wanting the younger crowd but since the older folks like me (48yo) were who always watched they have went for a smaller auidence with Conan. That makes no sense at all.
Conan is funny ... if you’re a 15 year old geek.
His “joke” about Sotomayor not being racist enough for Rush made it real easy to change the channel. Same Bush jokes, same old state controlled media crap.
