It has been a good first week so far for “Conan.”
According to TBS, Conan O’Brien’s new late-night talk show averaged 1.5 million adults in the 18-34 demographic and nearly 2.2 million adults between the ages of 18 and 49 for the week. Overall, the average for the week was 2.9 million viewers.
Those numbers helped the debut week of “Conan” to attract an audience with a projected median age of just 32 for the week, the network said.
“We’re thrilled that Conan and his team put together such a smart, funny show,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming, for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM).
“We couldn’t be happier with the great response from his fans. 'Conan' is a big hit among young viewers, with a median age that is more than two decades younger than the show’s rivals on broadcast.”
According to Deadline.com, Leno averaged 3.9 million among total viewers for the week while Letterman drew 3.7 million.
TBS is owned by the parent company of CNN.
