Conan O’Brien SuperBowl-esque ratings dropoff nothing to worry about : Beatweek Magazine


Conan O’Brien, you’ve lost a third of your opening night audience. You’ve failed. Go kill yourself now, as there’s no chance of making this work on TBS.

Actually, none of the above is true. Except the part about losing that much of his audience, and even those numbers may be suspect (we’ll get to that part in a minute). But either way, much is being made over the fact that Conan has already lost a significant percentage of the viewers he pulled in on his inaugural TBS episode on Monday. Scratch that. Losing one in ten viewers would be significant. Losing as much as one in three is news that might have Conan pulling out his beard faster than he already had been. But if he’s smart (and he is), he’ll step back and consider just how unique of a situation this is.
