Cone Zone not shrinking yet, says TBS boss

Contrary to what was reported in The Wrap, TBS boss Kevin Reilly says there are no plans at the moment to make Conan a weekly show.  This was the statement he gave to the Hollywood Reporter:
"As the media landscape continues to evolve, Conan will continue to lead the evolution of what a talk show will be in the digital age. At this time, we have no plans to change the format or frequency of his popular TBS show. In addition to Conan's daily responsibilities to his talk show, we continue to have very ambitious plans that will further broaden and evolve our relationship with Conan."
It all sounds vague.  When asked directly if Conan would shift to a weekly format, he said: "No, but it will shift."  So...maybe Conan will wind up doing the Howard Stern schedule of working three days a week?  The original statement about the shift was made by John Martin, the CEO of Turner.  Maybe the two execs just have different opinions.
