Conan O'Brien Rules the Internet, Provided You Ignore His Main Competitors

This chart from Trendrr claims that Conan O'Brien was "by far the most-talked about late night talk show in social media last month." OK. But as you can see, they didn't track the two most popular late-night shows amongst 18-34 year olds, the folks most likely to be using social media: The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. So while I guess it's interesting to see how much more chatter there is about Coco than Leno, Letterman et al., it seems a little disingenuous to make the claim that he's the most talked about name in late night. I'd be much more interested to see Coco lined up with Stewart and Colbert.

    I wish CBS made it easier to watch Craig Ferguson online. It's good of them to put so much material on Youtube (even if it is in one giant dump account), but they don't make it easy to watch him the next day.

    Not at all surprised to see Conan and Fallon at the top of this list. It's like Letterman and Leno don't even care about social media.
