Conan averaged 1.1 million viewers in 2012 (according to Neilsen) and he gets an extension through 2014. Go figure.

Despite a roster of notable guest stars including Green's wife Megan Fox, Wedding Band failed to register -- attracting 1.85 million total viewers and 1.1 million in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic, with a mere 613,000 in 18-34 for its November bow.
For a Sat night when the "coveted adults" are out, busy, whatever I think those ratings were pretty good for no advertising. Not sure what tbs was expecting.

Sorry to see that "The Wedding Band" didn't make it. It was an enjoyable show, with some interesting characters. TBS didn't even try with it. Oh well.

I wouldn't say "no advertising" -- I do remember TBS running plenty of promos for "Wedding Band" during the baseball playoffs.

I saw so many ads for Wedding Band, more than just on TBS too, it made me not want to watch it.

I tried to watch Wedding Band 2 or 3 times and ended up thinking there was about 10 -15 mins worth of laughs in each show which would be ok for a half an hour show, too bad they were hour long eps.
