  • Remember

  • This is really the kiss of death for a guy like Conan because TBS, you know, it's tough

  • When you're on NBC you're you know

  • You're you're a factor as I told him for many years stay on NBC at 12:30

  • Stay there be the guy who they're always gonna say boy. If only Conan had the tonight show would be huge

  • That's what they used to say

  • He'd get the young audience, you know become the myth. So to speak he had a great gig at NBC

  • But he hungered for this Tonight Show

  • hungered and

  • He got it. He went from being the next big thing to you'll follow Jay Leno

  • You'll take over the Tonight Show. You'll get the second-rate guests

  • You'll be the you know

  • it'll feel like four o'clock in the morning because Jay will already have done a ten o'clock and you will be screwed and

  • then after we fire you

  • Jay is gonna come back a hero. I mean you couldn't orchestrate the end of a career better than that

  • all by your good friends at NBC and

  • Beijing

  • WNBC and now Ted insult injury didn't go to Fox

  • For you, I was shocked. I wasn't Fox

  • Listen, they're afraid they're not gonna put up all that money and get a to share

  • They're not they make a fortune. How what is it rating at?

  • that-air

  • Robin they aired The Simpsons

  • They've got reruns that make a fortune

  • pods were still negotiating with

  • with Conan and

  • TBS just kind of swept in there and one of the problems Fox was having it's not a secret was a

  • Lot of the affiliates didn't want to do it because the affiliates were making more money off of these sitcoms that they bought like Everybody

  • Loves Raymond and

  • Seinfeld and all these shows

  • where they were making a lot of money and then if the network came in and said look you after a network show they weren't

  • Gonna make nearly as much money. So it was a problem for the network's it was

  • very expensive to do

  • While Fox was kind of mulling it over TBS just kind of swept in and then just made the deal

  • George Lopez made the right move

  • Because listen, he wasn't getting any attention over there, right good guy good town, but these on TBS let's cone and go on

  • Maybe he'll bring in an audience and then I'll get the UH and I'm gonna have the prayer and I won't have the pressure

  • smart man

  • Gets it. He probably just extended his show for another two or three years at least

  • What can I?

  • played again

  • Well, listen conan needs a job

  • Job job

  • He's a young man who wants to continue work. He got a 40 million dollars

  • So I'm some crazy number like that pay it was making money before so it wasn't like he needed even 40 million

  • I know he's got a four day a week schedule which by the way for kid to put yourself on the map on TBS

  • he ought to be working a five day a week schedule doesn't sound like

  • No, it does not. It sounds like a guy who just got 40 million dollars and he can coast

  • He should be on Monday through Friday and I doubt they're paying him a lot of money over a TBS. I really do it

  • He wasn't in any position to negotiate

  • So well, they gotta pay him something. Oh sure. I can't have their guy, you know

  • Taking the subway to work. All right, but listen, I'm happy for him

  • You got a job, but you really you know, the guy feels damaged

  • Going it premieres, November 8th at 11 only on TBS very funny

  • Welcome to my 2nd annual first show Oh

  • In the ratings barbarian they're our good buddy Conan O'Brien show premiered Monday night boy

  • Did he woof everyone take that Jay Leno while the ratings jumped in today?

  • I can tell you Conan's new show called Conan drew more than 4 million viewers on its opening night on our sister network

  • TBS that beat the daily show The Colbert Report David Letterman's the Late Show

  • And yes, the show that Conan was done from The Tonight Show

  • Well, people worked very hard to make this space for us

  • We set up a special time-lapse camera in here to record the amazing transformation from what the studio used to look like

  • Into what it looks like now

  • There's just one drawback to being on basic cable, and that's that there are hundreds of channels

  • Ok, and thanks to the whims of local cable providers finding TBS on your dial can vary wildly from town

  • To town. I didn't know that yeah isn't within one town. It's on differences

  • Yeah, and I had I had no idea when I made this deal. I

  • really should have put some thought into this but

  • Thankfully a good friend of mine has come up with a simple little song that's gonna help us all remember where to find TBS

  • Anywhere in the country if we can all memorize this song, we'll be set please welcome my good friend raisin

  • Oh

  • This is a fun rhythm

  • Mentone is either 17 or 62 depending how close to Florida you live

  • Anis 10 is 39 and for Birmingham

  • Here's advice. I give different providers have different rules over either on four five or 16 or 42 49. Yeah

  • anything in between

  • Hey, I get it. This is fun and it's so easy

  • Well then sing along you guys, okay?

  • Ready, here we go

  • Thor's be

  • 3085 Bruton

  • 1857 enterprise Pennington to Columbia 109 piney 107. Those are woods with pine

  • board

  • No excuses, Alabama

  • Well, first of all, I want to thank you for how gracious you've been and how great you've been for

  • You know welcoming us over here to TBS and how that means so much to me in Conan and just this is a wonderful man

  • I always wanted him to come over. So you read things in the press all I wasn't happy. None of that was true, right?

  • I would tell people that's true. I'm happy that he's coming in that you're coming because together

  • We are going to take late night into the future Andy Richter after beyond, baby

  • Were from what I understand you were so eager to have us come over that you actually sabotage just the tonight tradition

  • You were in Jays ear the whole time

  • Whatever, you know, you were you were trying things that were different that we're funny that were innovative things in the studio things outside of

  • The studio. Yeah, so you that's why the fit at TBS and you guys at 11:00 and me at 12?

  • It's two hours of late-night talk that you will not see anywhere on any channel on TV

  • Now maybe there'll be talk shows that actually make people stay awake as opposed to have help them go to sleep god I hope so

  • Jim tell us what your title is. I am a manager of original productions for standards and practices

  • They have standards and practices at Network my understanding when I moved to cable was that there's no standards and practices. Was that a mistake?

  • Yes, I took a big pay cut

  • to come to cable

  • with the understanding that I could pretty much do whatever I wanted and

  • you're saying that that was

  • incorrect incorrect

  • Okay, I can say brass right? Correct. How about bazongas? Yes, the scoliosis twins

  • That makes no sense. Why would you okay that scoliosis is curvature of the spine

  • I guess if you've got really big ones in that scoliosis

  • Sexual positions, I'm gonna fire some slang at you for sexual positions. You tell me if they're okay the old Tokyo sandblaster

  • Have you ever had you ever done the old Tokyo sandblaster

  • Together Conan and I think that we can go into the future late night keeping it young keeping it real

  • Are you doing Conan gonna be doing anything together? Oh, you know we did some promos but the shows are gonna overlap

  • It'll be a little thing where I run over there and he runs over with me. So, okay

  • Before we get started. Could you really quick punch my talkshow card? Because if I get them all then I get a free frozen yogurt

  • See that all bro

  • You know what? I can't man because you didn't get Conan to punch it. Oh, man. I forgot to get him it

  • I got it. Anyway, I got in trouble. I did Sam
