The associated press is reporting a deal has been reached between TBS an Conan O’Brien to host a new late night show this fall. The report indicates that Conans show will begin in November from the 11pm-12am EST time-slot….sorry George Lopez fans but Lopez Tonight is getting bumped back an hour.
The good news is by being on cable Conan will be able to keep his “risque” material that those fat cat network execs made him tone down when moving to The Tonight Show. The only possible issue would be that if NBC owns the rights to the characters created for his show, we could be without a lot of our much loved characters (Masturbating Bear, Vomiting Kermit, Pimpbot 5000, The Interrupter, The Traveling Salesman, etc). All in all thought, it’s great to hear that Coco will be coming back to the airwaves sooner than later. No word on if Andy Richter and Max Weinberg will be joining Conan but one can assume they will.
Conan O’Brien Headed to TBS
