Is all the promotion working? Apparently so. The station is securing $30,000 to $40,000 for 30-second spots that will air during Conan's show -- a number close to the rate for commercials during NBC's 'Tonight Show' and CBS's 'Late Show'.
Cable shows typically draw smaller audiences than broadcast programming but that gap has steadily narrowed in recent years. Advertisers are no doubt betting on the fact that Conan's audience will flock to TBS once he returns to television.

The show, still without an official name, premieres in November.
