Starting this November, Conan O’Brien will start his own late-night show, and forget NBC, ABC, or Fox, he’s movin’ on up…to basic cable. More specifically, his new show will air on TBS. The show will air at 11 p.m., bumping George Lopez’s late-night show to midnight. Hey, it’s a small price to pay.
Conan O’Brien hosted NBC’s The Tonight Show for eight short months before extremely low ratings on his predecessor Jay Leno’s prime-time show force him to give Leno his old job back. To make matters worse for Jay, Kevin Eubanks, his long-time sidekick and bandleader of The Tonight Show Band had announced he was leaving The Tonight Show after 18 years. But fear not Leno fans: Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish is slated to replace him.
