CONAN Ranks #1 with Young Adults 18-49 and 18-34 in Live + 7 Deliveries, Topping All Cable and Broadcast Late-Night Talk Shows in Fourth Quarter

Passionate Fans Use DVRs to Make Appointments to Watch, Propelling CONAN to First Place

Conan O'Brien's hit series on TBS is the youngest talk show in late-night television, with top ratings in two key demos: adults 18-49 and 18-34. CONAN is averaging 1,443,000 adults 18-49 and 930,000 adults 18-34, while the show's median age is just 33.

These season-to-date figures run from Nov. 8 through Dec. 30, 2010, and add in time-shifted viewing data, providing the broadest picture yet of the current late-night landscape. Time-shifted viewing accounted for a sizable portion of the CONAN audience, including 361,000 growth in 18-49 and 236,000 growth in 18-34 when comparing Live to Live + 7 viewing. With these time-shifted numbers included, CONAN ranks first among all late-night talk shows.

CONAN receives a far bigger lift from time-shifted viewing than broadcast shows, which is a reflection of the young fan base that O'Brien attracts. Most late-night talk shows on broadcast television have median ages in the mid 50s, compared to 33 for CONAN.

"CONAN is just getting started on TBS, but the show has already proven to be a huge success in attracting a young, loyal audience," said Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "CONAN is #1 with key demos, and we are thrilled that the show is even younger than expected."
