Some are shocked to learn that Conan will be on TBS and not Fox. But have you seen TBS lately? They’ve come a long way. If you think they’re still the tiny little superstation known for reruns of The Andy Griffith Show, think again. As for speculation that Lopez Tonight would put TBS out of the running, apparently George Lopez doesn’t mind moving to a later slot and having Conan as his lead in.
“TBS would not have been the first place I’d have thought he would go, but in a way it makes sense,” said Mary McNamara, TV critic for the Los Angeles Times.
Unfortunately for Canadian fans of Conan, they’ll have to hope that a Canadian network will pick up his show as TBS is no longer available north of the border.
