1.1 What is "Late Night with Conan O'Brien"?

"Late Night with Conan O'Brien" is a late-night talk show hosted by
Conan O'Brien. LNwCOB appears Monday through Friday on NBC in the
United States. Beginning the week of December 11th, 1995, the show went
back to the old schedule of repeats on Monday, and new shows on Tuesday
through Friday (giving the show extra time to shoot remotes and
production pieces). It starts at 12:36:30 am EST and ends at approximately
1:35 am. It was first broadcast on September 13th, 1993 as the
replacement for "Late Night with David Letterman" when Letterman moved
to CBS to do "The Late Show."

Beginning in December 1996, "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" will be
shown at 10 PM EST from Monday to Friday on the CNBC cable network. CNBC
will broadcast re-run episodes one month after their original airing on NBC.

Internationally, "Late Night" is broadcast through the "NBC
Superchannel" at 11 PM, seven days a week. Re-runs fill the two weekend
slots.

The "NBC Superchannel" is currently a Pan European satellite
channel, broadcasting entertainment (NBC) and news (CNBC) programs. It is
broadcast both from Eutelsat 2 F1 across a broad area from Russia to the
Canary, and on Astra 1D, covering of Western Europe. NBC is splitting up
the programming on "The Superchannel," and soon CNBC programs will be
broadcast all the time on Astra 1D, and entertainment (NBC programs,
including "Late Night") will be only found on Eutelsat 2 F1 during
certain parts of the evening. "The NBC Superchannel" is also carried on
many European cable stations, serving most of the continent.

NBC has plans to open "NBC Superchannel Asia" sometime early in 1996,
providing Superchannel programs to the greater Asian Pacific area.

"We're primarily a children's show. There'll be puppets later."
