O'Brien to make TBS his new late-night home
NEW YORK -- Conan O'Brien is headed to TBS to host a late-night talk show expected to debut in November.
The network said Monday that the program will air Mondays through Thursdays at 11 p.m. Eastern, shifting TBS' "Lopez Tonight," starring George Lopez, to midnight.
Monday's surprise announcement comes the same day O'Brien starts a two-month, 30-city live tour in Eugene, Ore., amid persistent reports that he was likely to claim Fox as his new late-night home.
O'Brien left NBC in January after hosting "The Tonight Show" for just eight months. His predecessor in that slot, Jay Leno, then reclaimed the hour. As part of his parting deal, O'Brien is barred from appearing on TV until September.
