TBS had experimented with a Saturday night TV launch for Conan‘s Korea road trip. The unveiling at 11 PM Saturday logged 861K total viewers and 457K demo viewers off a lead-in The Big Bang Theory repeat that logged about 2.3M viewers and 895K in the demo. The Conan Korea episode has had no replays on TBS since; it will have its regular time slot unveiling on at 11 PM Wednesday.
