Sneaky Slash slips Coco onto Leno (& Conan goes to TBS)

Try saying THAT title 108 times fast, eh? or don’t, since the bigger news is that Conan just signed a deal with TBS. But first the Slash pic:

Okay, so that’s kindov amusing. but what about this TBS bullshit? His new show will only be on Mondays through Thursdays – no Friday show?? dude… that’s when all his middle school to high school fans watch. It was the only time I watched growing up at least. ug… It will air at 11 p.m. Eastern, pushing George Lopez’s show “Lopez Tonight,” to midnight, which I find delightfully coincidental. How awesome would it have been if Lopez wrote a public letter to TBS in the style of Conans to NBC where they both refuse to move their shows from 11 to midnight to accommodate a new host? dude…

So why no Fox? Those of us who were paying attention knew that Fox was publicly saying they weren’t in negotiations or were actively interested but… didn’t 100% of us think that was bullshit? TBS? i just.. i… oy…

The AP reports: “In three months, I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I’m headed to basic cable,” O’Brien said in a tongue-in-cheek-toned statement. “My plan is working perfectly.”

Theres no way this TBS bullshit is for real.. you heard it here first: Conan probably has a 1-2 year deal there designed to show the Fox affiliates that he is not ratings poison. once he’s shown to be a tested and proven commodity on TBS and the Fox execs convince their affiliates to carry him, Coco will respectfully not renew his contract with TBS and move to Fox at 11pm. Theres just no other way this makes sense. and no one is calling it out. wtf dude… im tellin you. you heard it here first…
