Conan Announces New Show – On TBS
Conan O’Brien, who was ousted from his job hosting The Tonight Show in January, announced Monday that he is joining TBS to host a late-night talk show that is expected to debut in November. The Emmy-winning comedian’s new program will start at 11pm and will be followed by Lopez Tonight, which will shift to a midnight time slot. “In three months I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I’m headed to basic cable," O’Brien said. "My plan is working perfectly.”
O’Brien began talks in earnest with TBS just last week, after George Lopez personally called him to ask that he consider joining the network’s late-night line-up. “I can’t think of anything better than doing my show with Conan as my lead-in,” Lopez said. “It’s the beginning of a new era in late-night comedy.”
