TV Junkie: 'Conan' To NYC; Podcast Roundup
As covered in this column last week, Conan O'Brien is going to do a week of shows in New York City during the first week of November, a visit which will now include unveiling a gallery of fan art at the Time Warner Center with more than 50 creations. Conan's most recent promo for the trip is at the end of this post and I anticipate that he will present us with a very active week in the city - he's not going to NYC to just show us the inside of the Beacon Theatre. I'll be going to the art show and one of Conan's shows and will give you a full report.

It's mystifying but somehow "Terra Nova" grew 14% in viewership Monday. Who the heck is watching this show? I had no idea there were so many 14 year old boys in this country.
