01 Jul Chelsea Handler Dominating Conan In New Ratings
I think I am the only one not surprised by this. Ratings for the 11 P.M. hour of cable were released and Chelsea Handler’s “Chelsea Lately” show is beating the “Conan O’Brien” show soundly.
The ratings show Chelsea with over a 100,000 more viewers on a nightly basis than Conan. For those at Conan watching the ratings, they did see Chelsea creeping up on them, but no changes were made.
Conan left NBC after being kicked to the curb of “The Tonight Show” by NBC and giving it back to Jay Leno. He landed on cable TV instead of Fox or ABC to a lot of people’s surprise.
Now, although Chelsea is beating Conan in the ratings, it is Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With John Stewart” and “The Colbert Report” as the number 1 show’s between 11 p.m. and 12 a.m. on cable.
That puts Coco in 4th place at his time slot. We ask; should Conan and TBS be worried?-Dr.FB
