Conan O'Brien has been busy with his “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour” across North America, but he’s very excited to get back to being in one place every night.
Conan now has an official start date on TBS on November 8th. He appeared at the Turner upfronts this morning in New York, and joked about the many changes he’s gone through in the last few months.
He told the crowd, “If anybody can explain what the f**k happened four months ago? The plot to Lost is more plausible than the last year, it makes more sense.”
“For the last 12 months, I signed on as the host of The Tonight Show, I launched The Tonight Show, I left The Tonight Show, I grew a beard, joined Twitter, launched a nationwide comedy tour, joined the Obama administration as under secretary of the interior, resigned in a sex scandal, perfected the mechanical human heart, and here I am at TBS.”
Conan joked that his vision for the new show is to "pick up where `Hee Haw' left off," with corny jokes and old country music.
One thing’s for sure, come November, Conan is going to be raring to go!
