TBS Sets ‘Conan’ Hour-Prolonged Present Finale for June 24

TBS has space an pause date for “Conan.” The late-night command will air its final episode on Thursday, June 24. After that, Conan O’Brien will win to work on his upcoming weekly HBO Max command. So it’s no longer love he’s retiring correct yet.

“Conan’s” final episode shall be an hour-prolonged survey serve on the command’s trek and TBS promises that his final week will consist of a immense collection of particular guests (he’s hoping Max Weinberg takes one final flip on the serve of the drums).

When it ends, “Conan” will discontinuance an 11-yr trek on TBS. His “Conan Without Borders” plod specials will continue.

O’Brien has been the longest-serving present late-night host (his idol, David Letterman, is the longest-serving host in TV historical past), spanning serve to 1993 when he took over for Letterman as the host of NBC’s “Gradual Night time.” O’Brien would gallop on to host “Gradual Night time” till 2009, when he then took over for Jay Leno as host of “The Tonight Present.” All people knows how that ended up, with O’Brien laid low with wretched ratings and Leno’s refusal to cede the spotlight (he hosted his hold 10 p.m. nightly command that also did poorly within the ratings), which resulted in O’Brien quitting after completely 9 months when NBC requested him to pass “Tonight Present” to air after nighttime.

After a hiatus of virtually a yr, O’Brien landed at TBS. In 2019, he trimmed his hour-prolonged command serve to a half of-hour.

There don’t appear to be any extra facts on the upcoming HBO Max sequence or when it may possibly premiere, with the exception of that it “shall be a departure from his present ragged talk-command structure.”
