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.

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