Agree with above: I hope a Canadian HD network picks up the show.

Tal vez George López traerá a Conando TLN Telelatino?

My Mom heard it wrong and told me he's going to be back now on CBS

I was like 'CBS' ? That's Dave's network... no way Coco will be on CBS... then I find out its TBS. I tell my Mom who asks "TBS? is that one of those religious channels?" ... 'No Mom that's TBN'

11 PM. He'll be facing Stewart, Colbert, Leno, Letterman... Best of all, Conan now owns his show, just like Letterman already owns his. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out in the ratings.

It'll also be interesting to see the new comedy bits that will be developed for this new format, especially since cable has much less restrictive censorship issues. Will we discover that the Masturbating Bear and the S&M Lincoln were just scratching the surface of what happens to be a deeply sick and derange mind?

I certainly hope so!

Yea I would expect that if one of the OTAs picks it up we will hear about it during the Canadian upfronts the last week of May/first week of June. If a specialty picks it up, it could be late summer before we hear anything.

Looking at the schedules of Canadian Networks, The new Conan Show looks like a perfect fit for SUN-TV or on CITY-TV taped delayed 1/2 hour.

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

Would City be able to pre release it at 10pm. It would fill the Leno 10 pm void for 4 nights a week anyways.

SUN could probably pick it up...it would be a nice run up to Jimmy Kimmel at 12:05 ish...

Apparently the "Masterbating Bear" is now known as "The Self-Pleasuring Panda" on his comedy tour. Likely will be the case for the show.

NBC owns much of the content so expect the lawyers to get involved.

NBC and Conan fighting over someone in a bear suit pretending to pleasure themselves in front of a live audience...

NBC, are you aware that you're fighting over intellectual property that maybe, just maybe, you would prefer to dissociate yourself from it?

However, if this case is actually brought in front of a judge, I hope it's televised! There's bound to be a live demonstration!

I'm sure the issue isn't the "property" itself, but rather the legality of it. It's all about the money...

yeah it will be interesting to see if it does get picked up over here in Canada.
Do you guys think Comedy Network or Star TV may pick it up or no?

We used to get WTBS until a few years ago, when they decided to rebrand the cable version of TBS to PeachtreeTV. I think that's what happened. And in the process it lost much of the TBS programming.

It's not impossible for The Comedy Network to pick it up. However, they'd have to reschedule it for 12 AM since the 11 PM time slot is already occupied by Stewart and Colbert.

It's either that, or put it on the CTV network and push Lloyd Robertson into retirement.
