Looks like Conan O’Brien and Team Coco win again!  TBS’s Conan has been rated the number one talk show in America.

Conan is just getting started on TBS,” says network executive vice president Michael Wright, “but the show has already proven to be a huge success in attracting a young, loyal audience.”

Since its premiere on November 8, 2010, Conan has beaten out The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as the country’s most watched talk show, particularly amongst people as young as 18 and as old as 49.

It would appear that O’Brien’s cult status amongst the young and technologically savvy has remained intact during his transition from NBC to TBS; most of Conan’s ratings come from DVR recordings, which is common practice amongst people in their twenties.  The conflict between O’Brien and NBC last year may not have helped The Tonight Show’s numbers, hence its number two spot in the ratings.

TBS itself has become one of the most popular and accessible cable networks, featuring a number of popular original and syndicated comedy programs, feature films and another late night talk show featuring comedian George Lopez, following Conan.
