UPDATED CLIP: Here’s Warner Bros TV producer Chuck Lorre (Big Bang Theory, Two And A Half Men, Mike & Molly) on Conan:

His production company let us take Warner Bros. tours onto his stages when they were dark. It made a lot of people happy especially this former tour guide. I have no other dog in the fight that starts below…
I thought it was self evident. Apparently not. In my time on the lot I saw shows that had contempt for the people who watched their shows. Most of them didn’t last long. The ones who did get it were the people at Chuck, The Mentalist, Ellen and the Lorre productions. Chuck was a good example of actors and production people who understood that 100s of thousands of guests were sold on their show because an actor might say hello as a tour went by or their main sets were available when they were on another stage or off the lot. Those guests probably brought at least 5 or six other people to watch. Half a million viewers just by saying hi or allowing the tours to sell their show. Easy money. Lorre may be all the things that insiders say he is. He made my job a lot easier.
those are three of the most horific television shows ever aired nationally…..i admire his accomplishments but fear for his day of reckoning…much the same way i feel about howard stern…ugly entertainment grotesque material incidious effects…not something i want to answer for…but to reach the top of any field takes sacrifice and hard hard work ehv2
How does Conan get such A List guests? I bet the numbers were huge for this episode. What a get. Kudos to the talent booker. Next week… Matt Wiener or maybe even Ryan what’s his name that does Glee.
Conan is on the Warner’s Lot in Burbank, Chuck Lorre Productions is on the Warner Lot – not a stretch to get Chuck on the show
A Jewish man says he sold “Christmas Crap.” I wonder what happens if a Christian says the oposite.
You’re a massive idiot. What happens when a Christian says “I sell Chanukah crap” is, exactly, nothing.
He does make funny shows. But can’t believe it was THAT easy to just “get a job” in tv in those days, no talent needed. Uh, nevermind, still happens.
