TBS is having the last laugh right about now.
The network has nabbed none other than Conan O’Brien to join its burgeoning late night line-up, the network just announced!
Conan will debut his new series in the 11 p.m. slot, currently held by George Lopez, who will follow him with his late night talk show at midnight.
ΓÇ£I canΓÇÖt think of anything better than doing my show with Conan as my lead-in,ΓÇ¥ Lopez said via an official statement. ΓÇ£ItΓÇÖs the beginning of a new era in late-night comedy.ΓÇ¥
Added OΓÇÖBrien, ΓÇ£In three months IΓÇÖve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now IΓÇÖm headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly.ΓÇ¥
The show doesn’t have a name yet, but with barbs like that, we’re pretty certain it will be something fabulous!
