Conan O’Brien has claimed a new home – on TBS! I am so pleased buy this news! Poor Conan got such a raw deal and I’m proud of him for sticking to his guns with the network. Never underestimate a redhead!Â
Hollywood Deadline releases the statement, “Comedy icon Conan O’Brien 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 be followed by Lopez Tonight, which will shift to a midnight time slot”.
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.” Personally, I’m not so crazy about George Lopez’s talk show but I can’t wait for goofy Conan to come back!
