Basic Cable Station Extends Network Castaway’s Contract
The good news: TBS has renewed Conan O’Brien’s eponymous talk show. The bad news? The channel’s only renewed “Conan” through 2014, and everyone is beating Big Red in the ratings (even Craig Ferguson). Is the writing on the wall for Coco’s Wacky Chat Experiment #3? Where would Conan O’Brien go if TBS cut him loose? These are pertinent questions—on the other hand, all hope is not lost. Conesy’s got two years to get those numbers up. Again I suggest a week of entirely nude shows. Hosts, guests, audience. Or, I don’t know, stop having Dax Shepard on every other fucking night.
