During today's TBS Upfront Presentation, the network announced the premiere date for the new talk show from beautiful hair owner and sometimes talk show host Conan O'Brien. Deadline even highlighted some of Conan's best jokes from the presentation, which was super nice of them.
"If anybody can explain what the fuck happened four months ago? The plot to Lost is more plausible than the last year, it makes more sense."
"For the last 12 months, I signed on as the host of The Tonight Show, I launched The Tonight Show, I left The Tonight Show, I grew a beard, joined Twitter, launched a nationwide comedy tour, joined the Obama administration as under secretary of the interior, resigned in a sex scandal, perfected the mechanical human heart, and here I am at TBS."
On his bearded look: "I look like the Brawny paper towel guy before a bone marrow transplant."
He closed with the song On the Road Again, a number from his live comedy tour. Among the reworked lyrics:
"My own show again, I can't wait to have my own show again... My own show again on any network even Oxygen....I'd change my sex if I have to... Off the road again, please get me off the road again... I’m sleeping on the bus with 27 men, I'd sell my soul to have my own show again."
The article goes on to say how George Lopez recycled the bad jokes he has been telling all summer about the new late night team, I'll spare you those jokes. You'll be able to catch the first episode of Conan's new still untitled talk show on Monday, November 8th. I'm guessing you'll be able to catch some Will Ferrell right around that time too.
Also I don't know about you other west coasters but George Lopez airs on my DirecTV early because of the time zone difference. Hopefully that continues with Conan airing at 8pm out west as well.
