Conan's Ratings Already Dropping!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsJay LenoConan O'BrienDavid Letterman


We were worried about this.

After squashing all of the competition in viewership during his Monday premiere, Conan had a pretty significant drop-off during its second night, pulling in a 2.1 rating!

This puts them down 28%, whereas Letterman pulled in a 3.0/8, Leno a 2.5/7, and Nightline a 3.2!


No need to get too discouraged, but we sincerely hope this trend doesn't continue!

Team CoCo!

    wait! his show is daily and not weekly? dam I missed it yesterday

  2. 2

    Two words: Andy Richter. Blah!

    Get a clue Perez. Conan is on a CABLE channel….. OF COURSE he's not going to get high ratings like Jay Leno… the fact that he's even coming close is seriously impressive. If you weren't such a moron, you'd see that.

    Now that Conan is on cable and not broadcast, you can't really compare the numbers. Cable is a significantly smaller audience, so as a percentage of households using television, he is probably still beating the crap out Leno. Conan can probably safely drop to about a 1.3-1.6 rating and still be safe. Plus, with the dollar figures he's pulling in from advertisers, which are unheard of for cable programs, he's not going to go anywhere.

    I never watch any of these shows but Letterman and Jay Leno are more likeable to me than Conan. I don't understand all this silly drama. The three of them have their shows stop crying.

    It's on cable, it was expected

  7. 7

    I LOVE CONAN !! I bet that pesky Leno has put a curse on him!

    I predicted this viewers were just curious to watch the first show! I guess all those viewers saw what they needed to and moved on like me!

  11. 11

    does not surprise me. Conan is just not that funny. He just got a lot of sympathy…he should have never gotten Leno's slot in the first place. I knew this would happen all along.

  12. 12

    Last night's show was much better than his premiere(Soundgarden Rule!). He seemed a lot more relaxed. 2.1 is a huge rating for TBS(better than "The Daily Show" usually) and I'm sure that's what they expected. He should keep doing what he's doing without compromise and eventually the viewers are going to get tired of Leno's stale jokes and Letterman constantly talking about his kid and all his guest's kids.

  13. 13

    i guess it's all subjective, but conan just doesn't connect with viewers like dave, and even that turd jay. i think jimmy kimmel is much more lileable and less aloof than conan.
    i think conan was much better as a writer and should have stayed at 12 30.

  14. 14

    Ahhh… because Conan ISN'T funny OR entertaining?!?! He tries too hard. Stick a fork in yourself stretch… you're done.

  15. 15

    Conan's ratings will continue to drop. They will be about a 1 share - which is good for cable. But sucks if you're on ABC/NBC/CBS/FOX.

  16. 16

    And besides, most of his teeny-bopper viewership can't afford cable. So, there you do. The math doesn't lie.

  17. 17

    BTW… They also said the same thing after the first week of Conan doing "The Tonight Show".

  18. 18

    I cant stand Leno and do not find him funny at all. That being said, as much as I heart Conan, he really isnt that funny. The 2 Jimmys FTW - Kimmel and Fallon!

  19. 19

    I don't think CONAN is funny~ AT ALL. He is more "stupid humor" I prefer "realisitic humor" and I would have thought he would have had better guests for the first show.

    And who in the US doesn't have cable. You can't even get channel 5 anymore without some form of basic cable.

    Face it, Conana isn't a funny guy - never was, still isn't, and never will be. Why he's on television still is beyond me.

    Wait for about two months. He'll probably be down to 1 million viewers by then. Most people today have TBS because they have cable or Satelite so using he's on cable now so it's expected is just an excuse. If 4.1 million watched him the first night on cable they could have continued to but didn't. He's just not that funny and Andy sucks.

  22. 22

    Now can we stop blaming leno? lol.

  23. 23

    Give it a rest Perezio. Basic cable can't reach network ratings. Plus FOX News has the biggest ratings of all. What does that tell you? Old fat republicans watch a lot of Fox News and Leno. Young people are out doing things, and dvr'ing Conan.

  24. Pcppk says – reply to this


    It's not just network versus cable that makes the rating shares difficult to compare. An issue with the ratings for Conan's new show are being affected by timezones. For instance, in the mountain time zone Conan's new show is on in the 9pm time slot - up against the last hour of primetime network programming before the 10pm news. Most people in the mountain time zone are watching the reairing of Conan at 11pm, but since that is a rerun of the program it is not counted in the ratings data that's being quoted.

  25. 25

    Conan, I've been your fan for ever but you need to get a f grip!!!!!
    AMIGO wake the f up!!!!
    We all find ourselves without a job sooner or later so you need to grow up and do the job you say you love. you complain tooooo much!!!!
    You gotta shave and move on, I am sick of homeless Conan!!! If anything you should be an example of how to pick yourself up and move on!!! If you dont, I will stop watching your show!!!!

  26. 26

    no surprise there: he's not funny and he's on cable. he was a total dumbass to have demanded Leno be ousted from the TONIGHT SHOW during his initial negotiations with NBC years back, because he ruled the roost at 12:30. but karma's an ugly bitch and Conan's about to meet her face-to-face. idiot -

  27. 27

    CoCo needs to stop with all the self pity. I'm sick of him.

  28. 28

    Conan's new show really—————- SUCKS!!!!!!!!

  29. 29

    I don't watch any of those shows. Usually at 11 I am watching whatever my DVR has on it from earlier in the evening. At 11 I don't want to watch any of the late night guys, but most especially Leno.

  30. 30

    i used to watch conan a lot but the commercials he has for his show are just…off putting. they are cocky and rude and that's why i haven't tuned in.

  31. 31

    His show stinks…….

  32. 32

    OMG even my 3-yr old likes his show! She was actually laughing at his beginning monologue. I like Conan, I always have. I don't think he's better than his competition, he just has a different style, to each is own.

  33. 33

    Re: MLE9025 – I co sign..without calling him a moron

  34. 34

    Conan is a whiny little douche.

  35. 35

    NYCTRIX - you clearly don't understand how advertising works because as those ratings continue to drop, and they will, so do the dollar amount the advertisers pay. Conan had a WEAK premiere and it's only gonna continue to drop. How much TBS is putting out to produce the show versus how much money is coming in from advertising will determine if they continue with his show…that's why NBC dumped him, it was costing them money to keep his show going because his ratings were so low.

  36. 36

    I know that I personally will be watching the episodes via his website. The show airs at 1:00am here, which is just far too late for me to stay up when I have work the next day.

    I love love love Conan though and hope for the best.

    sorry, but he's just not funny at all. I can't stand his stupid humor!

  39. 39

    1.) His ratings were better when he was on The Tonight Show than Leno's are right now.
    2.) He's no longer on network television, meaning people without cable, or people that don't get that station because of their package… can't watch him. People that assume everyone has cable are WRONG. Our household doesn't use cablevision, and even if we did, we aren't counted in the ratings.
    3.) The Nielsen Ratings are flat out wrong. Truthfully, I bet more people even watch Leno than what's counted, but no one is doing ANYTHING about changing this horribly broken system. Calculating "percentages" of who's watching what based on thousands (not millions) of people that are selected by the company itself, then adding it all up, and doing round about assumptions on how many people this signifies COULD be watching? That couldn't POSSIBLY be wrong!!!
    4.) Of course his ratings were higher the first night than they're going to be from now on. Even though only thousands have a voice in ratings, a good percentage of those "randomly" selected people will tune in the first time, and lose interest the following night.

    We'll be watching him for the third time on TBS tonight in this house. Not that it makes a difference with his numbers.

  42. 42

    i've been watching them…it's the fact that it's on tbs. he's a funny guy and popular with the younger crowd. i hope he stays because i grew up watching him and he's much more genuine and funny then others.

  43. wenzy says – reply to this


    I tuned into Conan the first night and was bored to tears! The back drop is too distracting and he isn't even remotely entertaining. He could learn a few things from George Lopez! His show is so fast paced. At this rate Conan will never make it…cable or not!

  44. 44

    How did Conan get his first TV job anyhow? He never was in the same league as Leno. He must have the best agent in the country..
