    Those were repeats for Conan.

    Is this a new low for Letterman?

  • Diana Santiago

    Conan killed Stewart/Colbert last night.

  • Jim LaForte

    OUCH! “LATE SHOW” 0.5/2? That has to be the lowest recorded 18-49 rating ever for Dave. Not good.

  • Aaron

    Based on Conan’s .7 rating from last night, he could very well get a .6 rating for the week if he scores at least a .6 tonight.

  • Jim Laforte

    How is the Viacom/Dish or Direct TV fight affecting Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert?

  • GARebelman

    Some break downs of that weeks data:
    Week of July 9, 2012

    PROGRAM AVERAGES TOTAL VIEWERS A25-54(000)/ Rtg A18-49(000)/ Rtg
    ABC ”Nightline” 3,555,000 1,320,000/ 1.1 1,013,000/ 0.8
    CBS “Late Show” 2,362,000 950,000/ 0.8 682,000/ 0.5
    NBC “Tonight Show” 3,382,000 1,234,000/ 1.0 957,000/ 0.7

    Also, Fallon has a prime time special this next wednesday at 10PM. Wonder how that will do?

  • Mario

    Aaron, quit dreaming!

    Look back at the weekly ratings for Conan on this site! He’s always gotten a horrible .4 or. 5! He never has gotten and never will get even a .6 for the week!

  • JB

    Did ya see Leno cursing last night with Rachel Weisz? The old man is getting edgier! Lol

  • Brad

    I really wish Letterman would just start playing old clips of himself.

    “Conan’s show is now, in my opinion, a must-see. Last year his summer shows were some of the worst I’ve ever seen. Now he is putting on some of the best I’ve ever seen him do. I think his show, even though there aren’t many bits from his NBC days, is more enjoyable than his Tonight Show ever was. Plus, he’s not at a network that is now doing worse than ever.”

    Aaron, I with you. He’s final twist everything in his favor, and I’m sure he looks over at NBC as a place that’s getting burnt down to the ground. Conan needs to get out more. This week was good, it reminded me a lot of with Tonight Show run, but this needs to happen more than just this one week.

  • Brad

    Also, I don’t think Conan deserves the Emmy-nomination. I thourghly enjoyed Kimmel a lot more this year than the rest of the years. He’s been doing a lot more scripted segments and skits which have been absolutely hilarious, like the Facebook Police skit. Yes, the last spot is always the wild card spot, but I think shows like Kimmel, Conan, and LLS need to fight hard for that spot.

    PS: Conan not getting nominated is a sign that he is not producing some of his best stuff, and that he is getting to be old news. I enjoy him, but its been nearly 20 years of the red-headed clown. Just something to remember when he’s up against Fallon, Stewart, Colbert, and Stewart.

  • Drum

    Not really sure why they even bother having the variety category anymore, seeing as The Daily show will win like always.
    There’s a slim chance that they’ll give it to Colbert this year for his super PACs work.

    Having said that i’m stil disappointed that Ferguson didn’t get nominated.

  • Aaron

    In August I will be going to La to visit family. Conan will be on a hiatus so I will try to go see Craig Ferguson. I will report my experience here if I am able to go to the show.

  • Diana Santiago

    Brad, I don’t mind Conan losing a space to Fallon, Stewart, Colbert, Kimmel, or even Maher (which seems to be a default nomination with no awards ever). What disappoints me is the SNL nomination, whose season has been mediocre at best. Anyway, we all know that the Emmy has been already sent to Stewart headquarters.

  • Diana Santiago

    I agree with you, Drum. Craig made two awesome weeks of shows in Paris and Scotland. He deserved a nod.

    Aaron, I’m very interested in your experience. My family has plans to visit LA in November, and I want to see both Conan and Craig.

  • JB

    Not sure if Ferguson will be taping in August. Next week is his last one at the old studio and apparently, the first show in the new studio won’t be til September.

    And I like Ferguson but he will never be nominated for an Emmy. His show is too “different” from the typical formula that the Academy likes. The only way is if he starts to do a traditional type of show but he doesn’t want to go that route.

  • GARebelman

    I don’t know why anybody cares about the emmy nods these days. You already know who is going to win. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart like every other year.

  • Monikka

    The Emmy’s lost their credibility a long time ago but nominating Kimmel just because ABC is hosting the awards show with Kimmel at the helm is just too on-the-nose even for those sychophants on the nominating committee.

    Ferguson’s last two shows, with Ray Romano and Kenneth Branagh, prove he is the best in the business. Both shows followed his usual monologue, emails, interviews routine but no one on TV can do more with less than Ferguson. He doesn’t get nearly the recognition he deserves but he truly is brilliant at what he does. Maybe the best ever.

  • GARebelman

    I love Craig with Don Rickles and Paula Deen. Now that is some hilarious stuff. Seen clips on youtube.

  • Aaron

    Once Craig moves into a new studio, will he be doing more skits besides “check the tweets”?

  • Brad

    I forgot Craig did the Paris show this year. That deserves something. He did win that new award recently so I guess he did get something. I’m with you Diana, SNL was not groundbreaking this year. I would be happy if Conan got the Emmy-nom over SNL, but remember, Conan made those god awful August shows back in 2011 even though the NYC shows should have made it a wash. If Conan keeps it up with what he’s been doing this week, he deserves to win it.

    I really wish you guys weren’t so hard on Kimmel. He really did have a splendid year. Yes, its a real shame its being overlooked because he’s been nominated for being the host of the Emmy’s on his home network, but he really deserves it. I think anyone but Stewart deserves to win. My vote, if I could, will be for Colbert.
