According to this source, it's not just me. Conan's winning the 18-49 group six of the last seven weeks:
If those numbers chili posted are true, NBC should be delerious with those numbers. That is the group that buys stuff.

That's it right there. It's not that Conan is failing, it's that Leno's show is tanking. NBC has a big commitment to Leno but this show of his is so bad it's killing local news shows on NBC affiliates. The Seinfeld thing seems like misdirection to me and the Conan criticism is justification for dropping him. What probably will happen is that NBC will finally have enough of Leno's show and drop him back into the 11:30 spot. Sucks for Conan, though. I don't watch a lot of these late night shows but his show seems pretty good. (And so does Fallon to my surprise.)
