Conan O’Brien Headed to TBS

The assumption has always been that somehow Conan O’Brien would end up at Fox. Sure there were multiple complications involved with that but the match seemed made in heaven. Other options out there such as Starz, Showtime, or Comedy Central never felt all that realistic in comparison. However in a move that has surprised most everyone including industry insiders, O’Brien has agreed to a deal that will give him a show on TBS.

Conan’s new show will debut in November where it will air at 11pm on Mondays through Thursdays and will be followed by Lopez Tonight at midnight. While TBS certainly is not the acclaimed destination that somewhere like Fox would have been, the hope is that there he will have free creative reign which could result in an even funnier show.
