Amazingly enough, given all the 'Tonight Show' commotion of late surrounding Jimmy Fallon's triumphant ascent to the throne vacated by Jay Leno in 2014, and most people are turning to Conan O'Brien for a reaction. TBS's 'Conan' host had famously won the coveted 'Tonight Show' hosting job in 2009, only to have it snatched away from a returning Leno, so what does Conan himself have to say on the latest shocker from NBC?
Conan O'Brien has been curiously silent about today's big 'Tonight Show' shake-up, but it seems the zombie apocalypse outside his recent Atlanta production may have taken precedence. Following Sunday's big 'The Walking Dead' season 3 finale "Welcome to the Tombs," several of the cast invaded the Tuesday episode of 'Conan' in character, with impressively hilarious results. See 'The Walking Dead' invade 'Conan' inside!
Even if the rumors are to be believed, and Jimmy Fallon is to take over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno in 2014, no power in the 'verse will ever keep Conan O'Brien away from TV. Not only does 'Conan' continue to thrive on TBS, and grace us with guest star appearances in the upcoming season of 'Arrested Development,' but it seems the freckled fair-haired late night host has begun crafting a new comedy on FOX, the cutely titled 'Bob's New Heart Show.' Find out the story of Conan O'Brien's latest venture inside!
For as much as we've enjoyed Conan O'Brien's role as the host of his own TBS show 'Conan,' Jimmy Fallon's increasingly strong work on 'Late Night,' and even Jay Leno's seemingly peaceful return to 'The Tonight Show,' a new storm on the late-night front might be brewing. Some sources are saying that NBC executives have quietly begun searching for Fallon's replacement, in which case Fallon would take over for Leno as host of 'The Tonight Show' in the next few years. Is there any truth to the rumor?
It's here, it's here! No, not Hurricane Sandy. Well, that too, but we digress. The first official photograph from Netflix's upcoming fourth season of 'Arrested Development' has hit the web courtesy of Conan O'Brien, and it's...well...let's just say we're not seeing much yet we haven't already seen. So, which Bluths do you think pop up in the first official still? And which recent guest stars are already putting in an appearance?
Throw some new tallies on both sides of the 'Arrested Development' season 4 board? Last night, the once and future 'Arrested Development' star Will Arnett dropped by 'Conan' in promotion of NBC's 'Up All Night,' but couldn't resist sharing a few secrets of the upcoming 'Arrested Development' reunion, particularly with two of his cast-mates sitting beside him! That's right, not only will Andy Richter return for the revival, but his late night boss Conan O'Brien will put in an appearance as well!
Batman & Conan! Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? Unfortunately, we may be waiting a long while before TV funnyman Conan O'Brien slinks into a costume and joins the Caped Crusader on a crime-fighting adventure, but we won't have to wait long to see him immersed in the Batman universe. Conan has joined the voice cast of Warner Bros./DC Entertainment's upcoming animated feature 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2'. So who will he be playing?
J.J. Abrams has long loved keeping secrets from his audience, and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' is no exception. The film is slated to come out May 17, 2013, which means we may yet see a teaser soon (undoubtedly we'll get one before the end of the year). But for now Abrams is only showing three frames.
The events of September 11, 2001 will forever be engraved in American history as one of the most tragic events, and the most impactful moment of our lifetime. But while the country collectively grieved over the human casualties, none were more affected than the residents of New York City. It was there that the devastation occurred and it was there that the survivors, the families of the victims and the city itself had to rebuild their lives.
At the time, most couldn't find the proper words to address the situation, but despite this challenge, it was left to all the late-night shows and media outlets that we often turn to for guidance to help us make sense of 9/11 and help us move on.
Shark Week is that one time a year we all eagerly anticipate sitting in front of the tube and getting a load of some crazy action courtesy of our sharp toothed friends of the deep. But Conan O'Brien wants to change all that.
"Forget Shark Week," he said on this week's episode of 'Conan.' Instead of geeking out over the ocean's most frightening creature (other than Godzilla, obviously), Conan recommends that you take a look at his own future hit series Shaq Week.
