You obviously have no understanding of the television/film industry. Conan deciding to go to TBS may very well turn out to be the best decision any late night talk show host has made in a long time. He doesn’t need the support of a major network (of the major 4, NBC consistently places last in ratings anyway) he has a cult following that is fiercely loyal. Although his audience may not be the largest in late night, moving to tbs means it doesn’t need to be. If TBS places 4th nationally in ratings that is a great success. Besides which at TBS Conan is able to have partial ownership of the show, guaranteeing he won’t be pushed out like at NBC, is reported to have signed a deal that at least rivaled his pay at NBC, will only have to do four shows a week (he gets Friday off), and it also doesn’t hurt that he took a $30 million exit deal from NBC. Not to mention that America has been so starved for Conan’s comedy (because NBC idiotically included a clause in Conan’s exit deal that he couldn’t appear on TV or the Internet until November) that his “Legally Banned From Being Funny On Television” tour was sold out from coast to coast despite his not being allowed to promote it.
