TBS Banks On 'Big Bang' for Sagging 'Conan' Ratings

Art Streiber/Turner Broadcasting(LOS ANGELES) -- TBS is forking over some serious cash in hopes of boosting ratings for its flagging comedy flagship Conan.

The Wall Street Journal
reports TBS is paying through the nose to give the flame-haired host a stronger lead-in by airing repeats of The Big Bang Theory at least two nights a week -- at a cost of $2 million per episode.

The network recently canceled its only other late-night show, Lopez Tonight.
