StatShot: Twitter Says Farewell To Conan

With Tom Hanks, Will Ferrell, Beck, Steve Carell and Neil Young, Conan O’Brien had a star-studded lineup for the final episode of his show last Friday, and the Twittersphere thanked him by making the Tonight Show the most-twittered show of last week, according to new data from Trendrr. All in all, O’Brien was able to gather 234,159 tweets during the week, with a peek of 90,670 on Saturday.

Glee seemed to benefit from its Golden Globe win, getting a total of 175,764 tweets last week, with a peak of 63,670 on the post-Globe Monday. Yes, Gleeks, that’s once again more tweets than American Idol, which only caused 117,898 status updates last week. Fourth was Jersey Shore with 101,547 tweets, followed by Oprah with 59,152 tweets.

Fallen Behind on the Late Night Drama? Hulu’s Here to Help

Just get back from vacation? Been focused on other news stories? Or just been too busy to keep up with the controversy arising over NBC (s GE)’s eminent reshaping of its late-night programming? Well, Hulu (s ge) (s nws) (s dis)’s got you covered. Today the video hosting site posted a timeline of 22 videos stretching back over the last week — arranged chronologically, the excerpts from The Jay Leno Show, The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live offer a relatively complete look at the conversation that’s developed between hosts since the rumors began about Leno’s cancellation.

It’s missing one or two videos, such as Conan O’Brien’s relatively subtle commentary about timeshifting (which came in the form of a conflict between his Twilight and Avatar-inspired assistants).

But this is the first time I’ve seen the Hulu collection tool in action, and this implementation is a great way to capitalize on the almost ironic uptick in ratings that The Tonight Show is currently enjoying as the result of all the back-and-forth taking place. Of course, the big piece it’s missing is David Letterman’s commentary — but that’s CBS (s CBS)’s fault, not Hulu’s.
