Conan O’Brien’s Late Night Show To Come To End After 28 Years
Conan O’Brien‘s late night show, Conan, is finally coming to an end after 28 years. O’Brien’s travel special, Conan Without Borders, will continue to air on TBS, and he’ll also be getting his own variety series on HBO Max.
“In 1993 Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform,'” O’Brien said in a statement. “I’m thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription.”
In an attempt to bring viewership back up, TBS cut down Conan‘s hour long episodes to half an hour last year. With the end of the show, the network thanked O’Brien for his work on the series.
“Twenty-eight years is a monumental achievement in late-night television,” Brett Weitz, General Manager for TBS said. “We’re incredibly proud of the groundbreaking work that Conan and his team have accomplished during the 10 years at TBS and are so glad that we will continue to have his presence on our air with the Conan Without Borders specials. We celebrate his success and are glad to see it grow across our WarnerMedia family.”
