TV TBS' "Conan" to End in 2021 as Conan O達rien Signs Deal for HBO Max Variety Show

"Conan" to End on TBS in June 2021; Conan O達rien Extends Deal with WarnerMedia for Weekly Variety Show on HBO Max
by Peter White
November 17, 2020



Conan O達rien is getting out of the nightly game and has swapped his daily show for a weekly variety series on HBO Max. The move means that O達rien will no longer front a late-night talk show for the first time in 28 years.

"Conan", which has aired on TBS since 2010, will conclude at the end of its 10th season in June 2021, WarnerMedia said Tuesday. He has fronted more than 1,400 episodes of the show, which launched after the comedian痴 acrimonious departure from "The Tonight Show".

In 1993 Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: 羨s soon as possible, get to a streaming platform. I知 thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription, joked O達rien.




Team Coco, which will produce the new HBO Max weekly show, is already in business with the streamer, making four stand-up specials featuring comedians including Chris Redd and Moses Storm.

28 years is a monumental achievement in late-night television, said Brett Weitz, General Manager for TNT, TBS and truTV. We池e incredibly proud of the groundbreaking work that Conan and his team have accomplished during the 10 years at TBS and are so glad that we will continue to have his presence on our air with the 舛onan Without Borders specials. We celebrate his success and are glad to see it grow across our WarnerMedia family.

Conan痴 unique brand of energetic, relatable, and at times, absurdist, comedy has charmed late-night audiences for nearly three decades. We can稚 wait to see what he and the rest of Team Coco will dream up for this brand new, variety format each week, said Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer, HBO and HBO Max.

To be honest with you, looking back, I had a feeling that Conan's TBS show as going to end once he cut it back to an half an hour and got rid of in-house band. And then the pandemic came in and stripped the show down even further.

It makes sense for Conan O'Brien to leave late-night since it's not where his fans get their "Conan" fix these days

Moving to HBO Max to host a weekly variety show and ending his late-night show after 28 years is just latest career evolution for Conan. "These days," says Michael Schneider, "O’Brien is probably more celebrated as a successful podcaster (Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend and producer of several more), the host of a popular run of travel specials (Conan Without Borders), his clips on social media and for just being Conan O’Brien, than he is for a cable TV show." Schneider adds: "O’Brien had a new energy to reinvent himself, developing the 'Team Coco' brand — which had evolved out of fans protesting his NBC exit — into a digital platform. And to make more noise, he began to take the show out of the studio more, to Comic-Con and then in those travel segments that turned into Conan Without Borders." ALSO: Rather than discuss his talk show ending, Conan told fans to stop obsessing over his long hair on his Tuesday show.

by Dan Snierson
May 3, 2021



Coco is preparing to go go. Conan O'Brien will host his TBS late-night talk show "Conan" for the last time on June 24, the network announced Monday.

The shows leading up to his grand farewell will feature all sorts of special guests, culminating in an hour-long finale that will celebrate the last 11 years of "Conan".

Conan O'Brien's exit should a sign that the late-night talk show format needs to be shaken up

"While O’Brien ultimately stayed true to late night’s roots, Conan has evolved better than his predecessors," says Olivia Cathcart. "Institutions like The Tonight Show, Late Night, and The Late Show have struggled to adapt to the changing landscape across the internet and social media, politics, and celebrity. Traditional late night is a relic of the past. Instead of constant rebranding, it would serve better to take its final bow and set the stage for the next generation of late night programming, one better suited for today’s TV viewer. In many ways, the internet killed the late night star. Late night was born early in TV’s history, when there were only a few channels and at a time where a TV in every house was not a given like it is today. It rose to a place of cultural dominance as TV became more and more common, and by the late ‘60s and ‘70s Johnny Carson and his Tonight Show held significant sway over the public. Networks have been chasing that prominence ever since, despite social and technological changes making it impossible for that to happen again...While we’ve always known celebrities are not as relatable as they try to appear, the one-of-us image is no longer attractive. The fakeness of these interviews became ever more obvious in the pandemic-born Zoom-based episodes. Without a shared stage presence, the hosts lack the charm that is needed to convincingly create a facade of longtime friendship and appreciation for their guests who, by and large, are not as interesting as their PR machines make them out to be. Though we should all know by now how these things work, with anecdotes and bits pre-planned, the puppet strings became ostentatious. Like a lot of entertainment media, celebrity culture was a form of escapism. We enjoyed peering into a life of luxury most of us will never see. While social media has made this easier than ever by giving celebrities control over their own image, it also killed all the fun (and some reputations). From Gal Gadot’s 'Imagine' video to Chrissy Teigen’s endlessly tone-deaf humblebrags, we’ve seen that celebrities are, in fact, not like us. More than that, their wealth and privilege is no longer viewed as inspiring but odious. Late night is largely a PR tool, one that celebrities no longer have to depend on, and one audiences no longer have the patience to suspend disbelief for."

Conan O'Brien will end his TBS show with two weeks of full audiences and final guest Jack Black

Rather than return to his studio at Warner Bros. for his final shows, Conan O'Brien will continue taping his Conan show at The Largo Theater, but with full audiences for the weeks of June 14 and June 21. His final show on June 24 with Jack Black will be expanded to one hour. During his final two weeks, Conan will welcome Martin Short, Bill Hader, Mila Kunis, Dana Carvey, JB Smoove and Patton Oswalt. Conan will also welcome a mystery guest on June 22. “Following all LA County Covid Guidelines, attendees will need to be fully vaccinated on the day of attendance and show proof of vaccination,” the show said. “At this time, masks will be required. Tickets are available now. For more information and to enter the free ticket lottery, go to Teamcoco.com/Tickets. Fans can also follow @TeamCoco on Instagram and Twitter for special ticket giveaways.”
