Crap, because we don't turn our clocks back, this won't be on until midnight.

Don't think I'll be watching many of these live and I'm not sure how you can compare the ratings to Letterman or Leno, when both start at 10:35 pm.

you must have cox or another local cable provider. on directv, we get the east coast feeds of the nationals, so it'll be on at 8pm.

and they re-air it at 11pm.

Lea Michele looked great. Love this hair better than the bangs. I can't believe that was a real news report with her magazine covers spilled all over the highway after that accident.

I'm already number 1 in the TBS key demo. And they are those that can't afford HBO

Loved it. Also surprised that Seth Rogen could say titties on air Slightly more adult line so far and I dont mind at all.

It also appears to re-air at 1 AM, which is handy because I forgot this debuted tonight.

For the cable-less folks like you, it's a Yes.

I'm still confused as to how that works, because they say "shit" all the time on F/X and TNT shows which air much earlier. Is there some kind of deal between each network and the advertisers for certain shows? Just seems weirdly inconsistent.

Anyways, back on topic, loved the opening show and just thrilled to have Conan back on TV. The hour flew by, although I was disappointed they didn't have more in the way of sketches, though I guess the entire opening was a sketch.

Like most everyone else, I'm curious to see how he modifies the show for cable, since he can probably push the boundaries a bit more.

With very few exceptions (amc's walking dead at a TV-14), most shows that use the word shit are TV-MA
