In its second outing, TBS’ ‘Conan‘ took a wholly expected drop in audience and ratings. On Night 2, the new late-night talker drew 2.8 million total viewers (down 33 percent from the premiere) and 2.13 million viewers in the coveted 18-to-49 demo (down 35 percent). Still, ‘Conan’ is likely to once again top Dave, Jay et al in the demos.
