Late Night Wars: Conan vs. Leno vs. Letterman

| More

Conan O’Brien’s new late-night talk show on TBS premiered last night and many were interested to see how the ratings would compare to his rival Jay Leno on NBC.

Well, it turns out that the discussion we’ll certainly be alive and well for quite some time because according to The Hollywood Reporter – Conan drew 4.2 million viewers compared to 3.5 million for Leno and 3.4 million for David Letterman. 

However, it’s still very early. Series premieres almost always destroy the rest of the competition so its just a matter of if Conan can get those numbers or close to those numbers consistently.

Of course, you can always throw in George Lopez, Jimmy Fallon and Craig Ferguson into the mix but when it comes to the big three — What late night broadcast do you like the best…Conan, Leno or Letterman?
