Coco to host late night show on TBS
Fans of Conan O’Brien can once again have their funnyman on the late-night boob tube.
The comedian recently inked a deal with the cable network TBS to air a weeknight show, starting November this year, from Monday to Thursday, at 11:30 P.M.
This can be considered a quick comeback, especially after the recent fiasco with NBC, as Coco was asked to make room for Jay Leno due to poor ratings.
The move to cable surprised many, as there have been speculations that Fox might be the one to give a better offer to O’Brien. The Fox Channel is apparently the only one, among the top four networks, who did not feature a late-night show.
USA Today quotes O”Brien to have said: “In three months I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing in live theaters, and now I’m heading back to basic cable.”
