In the wake of his untimely firing from The Tonight Show, the rudely removed Conan O'Brien's status is no longer TBD! Instead, he's TBS! He's partnered up with the cable network for a late-night talk show that will begin airing in November. Welcome back, Conan!
"In three months I've gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and I'm headed to basic cable," O'Brien says. "My plan is working perfectly."
The show is currently without a name, but it will be an hour and will be shown Monday through Thursday at 11 PM EST. In the wake of O'Brien's new outfit, George Lopez's Lopez Tonight will be bumped to midnight. Now relax. O'Brien isn't turning into his nemesis, Jay Leno, who usurped his old show from his rival/replacement in the Late Night Wars that transpired last year. Apparently, Lopez himself was the one who approached O'Brien about coming to TBS. No good deed goes unpunished, if Lopez's show loses viewers and/or ratings when O'Brien parks in the time slot. Let's hope he's a good lead in for Lopez.
"I can't think of anything better than doing my show with Conan as my lead-in," Lopez says. Do you think he's genuine? We think he probably is!
O'Brien started his "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour" comedy tour in Eugene, Oregon last night.
Did you watch O'Brien when he was on The Tonight Show? Did you boycott the show when Leno returned?
