TBS launches Conan campaign

'For your consideration' Emmy ads tout talk show

NEW YORK -- TBS is launching a tongue-in-cheek "for your consideration" Emmy advertising campaign for Conan O'Brien, who launches his talk show on the Turner network on Nov. 8.

"Give this man one more thing to tweet about," one of the ads says next to a picture of O'Brien.

Another says O'Brien deserves to be considered for "outstanding achievement in the use of SPF 150."

O'Brien has been on a comedy tour his his "Tonight Show" run on NBC came to an end a few months ago.

TBS doesn't seem to mind where he previously strut his comedic stuff. "Conan's great work in 2009 and 2010 deserves Emmy consideration," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks.
