Conan Still Worth Lots Of $$$ On Cable

conan commercial rates rival leno and letterman

Looks like Conan's getting yet another way to say HAH! to NBC.

Rates for commercials on Conan's new show, despite being on TBS, will run for $30,000 to $40,000 for 30 seconds, which is in the same ballpark as commercial rates for Leno and Letterman.

Here's what Conan's manager Gavin Polone had to say about ad space on the new show:

“The whole concept of paying differently always eluded me. Why is a 27-year-old male with $70,000 income more valuable if he’s watching Conan on NBC than if he’s watching Conan on TBS?”

We'll be curious to see which advertisers will shell out for commercials on Conan's TBS show.

Would U want your commercial to run during Conan's new show? Or do U still think Leno and Letterman will attract more audiences?

    Conan will have a great first couple of weeks just like Leno did when he went to 10pm. People seem to forget Leno brought in 18 million people when he first started at 10pm. Then he fell. Considering Conan only brought in 2.5 million as host of the Tonight Show I doubt he'll do even that once the newness has worn off.

    I have never watched nor heard him because I live in another country, but he's certainly not very attractive for show biz. Teevee is a visual medium. Someone should "do" his eyes, then he wouldn't wouldn't look so wrung out. Gingers just aren't my cup of tea.

    You seem to be the only one rooting for Conan to succeed…most people don't even know what channel TBS is on and he'll suffer the same fate as Lopez Tonight.

    Those rates will drop significantly when his ratings do, they are expecting good numbers his first couple weeks but it simply won't last. He didn't do well on network and cable won't be any different. Sorry Conan, the numbers do not lie!

    I can not wait!!! I hate Leno. He is an ass that laughs at his own jokes. I refuse to watch now that he screwed over Conan. ( Not that I like him before) CONAN is AWESOME!!!!

    Leno and Letterman both suck. I haven't bothered watching latenight TV since Conan went off the air cause they're both still doing the same stupid bits they were doing a year ago.
