Conan O'Brien Is Losing The Ratings Game!

Conan O'Brien is in trouble!

In last week's ratings, The Late Show drew more viewers than The Tonight Show. This is the first time since 2005 that The Late Show has outperformed The Tonight Show with an average of 3.5 million viewers and a 0.8 rating to 3.3 million and a 1.3 rating.

When it comes to splitting up the demographics (and their purchasing potential to advertisers), Conan pulled in more viewers at a 1.3 rating with a 6 share, beating out Late Show with a 0.8/3.

So maybe Conan is all right for now. After all, money talks!

    He's had what - two weeks? Let's wait for a while before we start calling for his head..

    Dave Letterman SUUUUUUCKS. His show is totally outdated and boring as HELL. He's such a grumpy old man it's uncomfortable to watch. CONAN is hysterical and amazing and I highly doubt these numbers are for real.



  3. 3

    conan's show sucks major balls. it's so boring!



  4. 4

    maybe Conan should have your dumb ass on his show and you can cry like a little bitch.



  5. 5

    aww ….Poor Connan



  6. 6

    you totally made it sound like conan is sucking like jimmy fallon is! Conan is freakin hilarious. david letterman isnt even that funny.



  7. 7

    They're both funny IMO. I just watch whoever has the better guest that night. :D Jimmy Fallon on the other hand needs work. Love him but he looks really uncomfortable.



  8. 8

    only because all the old boring ppl that thought jay leno was funny dont like Conans hilarious antics .

    All the ppl who love Conan are to busy out smoking up and getting drunk to be home at 11 30

    But honestly , The Tonight Show with Conan fucking rocks all others are boring as hell

    Too bad you were able to dodge your mother's coat hangar in her womb, Mario. I bet that's why your such a fucking piece of shit. Brain damage from to many blows to the head.

    Because Conan sucks. He is not funny the only people who will probably find him funny is 5 year olds or retards. Oh and David Letterman is just as bad. Both are horrible "comedians".



  11. 11

    Noooooooooooooooooo!
    Conan is a god.
    He wil prevail!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    XOXOXO CoCo :) :) :)

    Letterman is boring…www.missperfectblonde.com

    Conan The BOREbarian is NOT FUNNY…they should have kept Jay Leno or got someone remotely funny to replace Leno, like Jimmy Kimmel.

    Letterman is an angry, old, white liberal



  15. 15

    its because of all the controversy with Palin…sooo lame

    Conan's got to battle that whole thing with Letterman and Palin, though. Once it dies down, I think the Tonight Show would be back on top.



  17. 17

    yes, and wait until Jay Leno comes back to late night tv ……..



  18. 18

    jimmy kimmel is king of late night .



  19. 19

    that's strange, because he is a million times more funny/entertaining than that old, boring, awkward douchebag.



  20. 20

    I feel bad for Conan. He is really funny. But I guess it takes more than that to make it in the rating world.

    I prefer Letterman. Conan's got too much to learn yet. He takes too much away from his guests with his silliness. Comes on a bit too strong with it.



  22. 22

    Wooo. David Letterman rules! Awesome job.



  23. 23

    this new ratings trend may have something to do with Letterman's incident with Sarah Palin. any publicity is good publicity

    Re: MaNHaTTaNiTeRBiTeR
    I totally
    agree♥



  25. 25

    Craig Ferguson is still the best…



  26. 26

    But Letterman has Megan Fox and JOHNNY DEPP on tonight. Beat that!!!!



  27. 27

    GOOD!! Can't stand Conan……..



  28. 28

    They never should have moved Jay !! Those idiots at NBC had a cash cow in Leno. I hope he blows the competition away at ten then leaves NBC !! They dont deserve him.



  29. 29

    I can't wait til we are cuddled up watching Conan on the couch!



  30. 30

    I cant stand Conan. He's annoying



  31. 31

    CONAN JUST PLAINS SUCKS!!! ALWAYS HAS.
    I could not believe they gave HIM the tonight show…..

    Dave was once great, but now he is just too one sided, and political…. boring…. guest that just believe the way he does…. and bash the other side…. ALL THE TIME… has just become boring TV.



  32. 32

    Conan needs better bands on again. That would get me to watch more faithfully. No more of this alt-country BS, bring Alkaline Trio back on.



  33. 33

    I have always liked Conan more than Jay Leno, but less than Letterman. When I flip the TV on at all after 11pm, it's almost always to Letterman. I think, personally, they gave the wrong guy 'Tonight Show'. It's a new century, almost 2010 even, and Fallon would have been the better choice. He's 'fresher' with the comedy a newer generation would get. Letterman is great, even now, because he's very much like a Johnny Carson or Ed Sullivan. He's dedicated to his job, and he takes risks. Leno bores me, and Conan, I don't really think he's quite in Letterman's league. He has moments, but moments are not a career maker.

    Bring on Jimmy Fallon! Fallon was a far better host after five shows than Conan is after sixteen years. Conan is too centered on himself & his idiotic idea of "humor." Fallon is younger, smarter, faster and funnier. And Fallon can actually interview a guest. Conan can't bear for the focus to be on anybody but himself. Conan is boring boring boring and boring.

    Re: SexyCrazyCool – Conan the BOREbarian. That is the most accurate thing I've ever seen about O'Brien!

    CONAN IS AN ASSHOLE-WE CALL HIM "THE ICE PICK"



  38. 38

    CONAN IS DESTINED TO FAIL - AND WE"RE GLAD
