Time Warner announces acquisition of sports site Bleacher Report
Many expect Time Warner to fold Bleacher Report into the Turner Broadcasting System (TBS) broadcast division as they continue to restructure their sports coverage. Time Warner recently turned control of the Sports Illustrated website over to Time Inc. — a subsidiary of TBS — and it seems likely that the team behind The Bleacher Report will play a large role in the SI site as well going forward. Nobody has confirmed a final price, though the Wall Street Journal believes that Time Warner coughed up roughly $175 million for the purchase. source

"Lopez Tonight" gets the ax; final episode is tomorrow night

  • 40% ratings drop; George Lopez, he ain’t no Conan source

» “Lopez Tonight” is no more. Apparently TBS couldn’t justify “high production costs of the program given the revenues coming in.” Let’s have a moment of silence for the comedian, who let Conan take his time slot but didn’t get a ratings bump in return.

Must hand it to Conan. Dude knows how to make a cold open to start a series. There were many good parts of his debut, but the intro is perhaps our favorite (though the "comma Brett Favre’s penis" joke was definitely a winner, too). Will he be the new king of late night? Newsweek seems to think so. Go read the article and see if they’re full of crap or not. source

He can come as the musical guest, because that I want to see. No one knows he has an operatic range [sings as Jay Leno]. No, there are certain things I will not do, regardless of the price.
Conan O’Brien • Explaining that no, he will not have Jay Leno on his new TBS show, which premieres next week. Other highlights from his interview with Playboy: He explains how his doctor once thought he was a cocaine user (he’s not, but he likes to drink), notes how the business has changed in the last 17 years (reality TV was the biggest single change), and suggests that actors pay the audience for plugging their latest project on his show. “If Jim Carrey or Tom Hanks accidentally mentions his project,” he says, “I think the viewer should be compensated in some way. That would be a way to turn this economy around.” source (via)

Conan needs a desk, a gardening hose, and a crapload of water. That’s it. He doesn’t even need Andy Richter anymore. The hose is the new Andy Richter.
