Rumours of Conan


Ever since the Gordon Lightfoot Incident, I know better than to link uncritically to articles without official sources. So instead, I’ll link to this one while emphasizing that it’s not official at this point: According to that article, CTV is expected to announce that it will air Conan O’Brien’s TBS talk show in Canada.

Myles McNutt indicated that the hour-long show will probably get the time slot that CTV currently uses for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. If so, that will make me a bit sad, because it’s often very convenient to wait until midnight to watch Jon Stewart (I’m surely not going to wait up until 2 a.m. to see it again, and waiting until the next day when it goes online is just too normal).

But since we don’t get TBS here, instead getting “Peachtree TV,” it’s good to know that we’ll be getting O’Brien’s show in some form.

Rumours of Conan

  1. I'm with you. Having timeshifting Daily/Colbert all night long is fabulous. (And those of us on PST are lucky enough to have it at 8, 9, 10, 11 and midnight.)

    I hope this rumour isn't true, or that if true, CTV sends Conan to 'A'.

  2. Doesn't Comedy Network run Daily Show/Colbert at 11pm?

  3. Hopefully Comedy Network comes out with an HD channel soon. It's not important to the show, but I'm just used to watching all my favorite shows in HD, and that was a plus of watching Stewart and Colbert on CTV.
