Conan also just got nominated for an Emmy
Hearing this story, it makes me wonder if Conan was fired from the Tonight Show deliberately in order to bring his audience online?
I've been paying close attention to how mainstream entertainment industry is insinuating itself on the Web as 'regular people' supposedly acting on their own ...this is like the early days of TV... everything has to look accidental. Television has entirely lost the illusion of spontaneity. They have to preserve the 90'... the 90's notion that the Internet is 'our' medium [a democratic medium].
Very interesting......he is doing a nationwide live tour: "Conan O'Brien's Prohibited Tour". Lady Gaga handling is doing the same kind of thing...live tours and Twitter.
We are witnessing a major culture creation program unfold. Huge dollars must be in play. TV will be dead when the commercial sponsors quit paying for it, which I expect to happen soon. So, this means that money is going to shift to the Web, BIGTIME, when that happens.
Wow, big stuff is happenings.
