As though we didn't have enough reasons to look forward to the return of Arrested Development, now we can add Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter to the list. AD star Will Arnett appeared on Conan's TBS talk show last night and the topic of the once-Fox, now-Netflix comedy series came up, which was when Arnett casually dropped the news that O'Brien and Richter would be a part of the fourth season in some way.
Conan fans may not be quite as plentiful as those who watch the late night talk shows on network television, but what they lack in numbers, they make up for in dedication and determination. That appears to be what Conan is looking for with the "Occupy Conan" campaign, which will invite fans to re-create an episode through crowdsourcing.
Governor Mitt Romney's five sons appeared on Conan last night to talk about their father and their family. In typical Conan fashion, the move was kept light and didn't delve very deep into political discussion, but the interview O'Brien had with the men did allow us to get to know the presumptive Republican Party presidential candidate a little bit better.
Conan O'Brien took his show on the road last night, kicking off "Chicago Week" the most literal way possible with a bit of Irish step-dancing, in addition to a chat with the mayor and some silliness involving a bridge and some bratwurst. As you'll see in the video ahead, O'Brien's attempt to partake in some Irish step dancing resulted in a young dancer getting kicked in the face.
Earlier today we shared the good news that the cable network had swooped in to rescue the struggling ABC comedy series Cougar Town from cancellation, giving Bill Lawrence's comedy a new home and a fourth season to move forward with. And now comes word that the network has greenlit two new comedies to series, one of which comes, in part, from Ashton Kutcher, while the other is from Conan's own Deon Cole.
You haven’t heard a great young female celebrity tweet until you’ve heard it read by Nick Offerman. Last night’s episode of Conan had Offerman (a.k.a. Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson) featured in a segment that had him reading off random celebrity tweets. The girlishness of the tweets was nicely offset by the sight of Offerman chopping wood.
While Will Ferrell’s appearance on last night’s Conan as Ron Burgundy to announce the sequel to Anchorman may have been the highlight of the night, but Dana Carvey followed this up with a very funny interview wherein he proves he hasn’t lost his touch when it comes to the presidential impressions...
Last night on Conan, Conan O’Brien and his TBS talk show sidekick Andy got a taste of their own medicine. After numerous segments a couple weeks back in which puppies were brought up on stage to represent Conan and Andy on a tiny, puppy-sized set, Conan vowed that they’d shoot a whole show on the mini-set. Last night was the night. It was also a night full of tall guests, including Shaquille O’Neal, and Community’s Joel McHale.
Recently, it was discovered that an online talk show in China was using an opening credits sequence that was remarkably similar to the opening for Conan O’Brien’s late night TBS talk show Conan. Conan poked fun at being ripped off numerous times last week, even going as far as to take revenge on the show by mimicking them back.
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog made his triumphant return last night in a segment on Conan which had him crashing the red carpet of the Golden Collar Awards. Watch him in all of his crass-humor glory as he mocks and insults the various dogs at the event.
There’s nothing quite like capping off a long day with an episode of Conan. Hosted by Conan O’Brien, who’s joined by his trusted sidekick Andy Richter, the TBS late night talk show continues to be unpredictable, occasionally goofy and consistently hilarious, which is why I consider it great news to share that TBS has extended the show through April 2014.
Amanda Seyfried (Big Love, Veronica Mars) appeared on Conan last night to talk about her upcoming movie Gone, which arrives in theaters this weekend. Just prior to setting up the clip that was to be shown on the episode, a discussion about taxidermy came up, which prompted Conan to give the actress what may be the weirdest gift a talk show host has given a guest... a dead animal.
Last night’s episode of Conan was like the perfect storm of funny and entertaining. This is to be expected when someone like Steve Martin drops by, but then factor in puppies, hamsters, Rebecca Romijn talking about Steve Martin’s starring role in what sounds like an R-rated dream, and top it all off with a performance by Cake. Needless to say, Conan’s week ended on a high note.
Each Monday night on Conan, host Conan O’Brien airs a segment called Fan Corrections, in which he shows a video of a viewer who noticed a mistake in a previously aired episode. They’re usually pretty funny, especially because Conan always manages to find some ridiculous way to prove the fan wrong.
With football wrapped up for the season, basketball is likely to be what’s on sports fans minds. Last night’s Conan featured a slam-dunk segment that’s sure to get a laugh, especially from those of you who love the mascots. What are the mascots that should never dunk? Conan got them on his show last night.
