Conan to TBS Reaction
Like apparently everyone else on the internet, I’ve been a fan of Conan for a long time. My first reaction to the move to TBS was one of surprise; I’d have guessed the obvious, that he’d go to Fox. But the TBS move makes sense in that:
- He’ll get a little more creative freedom in terms of the FCC
- He’ll get a little more creative freedom in terms of network pressure
- Sarah Palin is likely testing the limits of Fox’s budget
- It represents a cleaner break from network television, which, for all we know, may have been a forced play by NBC in their agreement to buy out his contract.
