Conan headed to TBS

NEW YORK (AP) - 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.

Meantime, O'brien is launching a 30 city theater tour called "The legally prohibited from being funny on television tour."

The tour will apparently include some regulars from O'Brien old cast including Andy Richter.

They'll be in Spokane April 16th. According to O'brien quote, "it was either a massive 30-city tour or start helping out around the house."
