After a decade on the air, Conan will air its final nightly show. But that’s not the last that you’ll see of host Conan O’Brien‘s face — not by a long shot. O’Brien may be ending his nightly TBS talk show in 2021, but he’ll be launching a weekly HBO Max variety series in its stead.

Remember D.A.R.Y.L.? I sure don’t, but it was a movie from 1985 about a young boy who was secretly a robot. And now, for reasons that are far beyond my understanding, there’s a TV series sequel in the works. It’s one of several titles in development over at TNT and TBS, and Tony Hale is set to star as the robot boy, who is now all grown-up…and obsolete.

To honor the late Jerry Stiller, TBS will run a Frank Costanza marathon this Saturday. Which means you can expect to see a whole bunch of Stiller’s iconic moments all on one day, stretched over the course of a few hours. Stiller, the father of Ben Stiller, and a comedy legend with over 65 years in the business, died on Monday at the age of 92.

There’s a documentary called Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop that follows the comedian as he goes on tour following the famous debacle of losing The Tonight Show gig after Jay Leno decided he wanted it back. It sounds like that documentary title still holds truth even in these chaotic times, because Conan will be coming back to TBS with new episodes on March 30, despite the growing coronavirus concerns around the county. But don’t worry: the show will be shot on an iPhone, there will be no audience, and guests will use Skype to appear on the show. Read More »
The first season of Miracle Workers focused on Daniel Radcliffe, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni as employees in heaven trying to stop God (Steve Buscemi) from destroying Earth. Now the show is returning for a second season, but since it was crafted as an anthology series, it’s going in a completely different direction and has absolutely nothing to do with the story from the first season. But not everything is different.
Miracle Workers: Dark Ages takes the same cast from the first season and turns them into medieval villagers just trying to get by in one of the most difficult and dark periods in human history. Needless to say, things are pretty bleak when people get excited to watch someone get killed in the middle of the village square. Watch the Miracle Workers: Dark Ages trailer for a glimpse.

Movie posters have lost some of their artistic value in recent years as studios opt foe cheap Photoshop jobs instead of stunning illustrations. But in case you haven’t heard, artists in Ghana have breathed new life into the world of movie posters by making movies look ieven more intriguing and enticing than the real marketing campaigns. Of course, that’s usually because the Ghanaian artists add elements that are completely insane and have nothing to do with the actual movie.
Well, Conan O’Brien recently went to Ghana as part of his Conan Without Borders series, and while there, he met with Ghanaian movie poster artist Daniel Anum Jasper to talk about his impressive work. It should come as no surprise that Conan commissioned Jasper to create a poster that perfectly captures the spirit of the late night talk show, and it did not disappoint. Plus, to make sure the poster is accurate, they even shot a trailer that tries to make sense of it all with an actual story.
Watch as Conan explores Ghana movie posters below. Read More »
Conan O’Brien has made waves by doing extensive traveling for remote specials for his late night talk show spin-off Conan Without Borders on TBS, which has also revamped its format to be just a half-hour show most of the time. And his next trip will take him to Greenland, where Conan tried to keep the country from falling into the hands of President Donald Trump. But beyond trying to make a ludicrous real estate purchase, he also gives a weather report, meets a lot of locals, check out the massive (melting) icebergs, and much more. Read More »
Last night, Will Ferrell appeared in character as Anchorman character Ron Burgundy on five different late night talk shows to do stand-up comedy and stick around for an interview with the host. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with James Corden and Conan all brought in Ron Burgundy to tell some jokes and have some of the funniest interviews these guys have ever done. All of this seems to be a promotional push for the second season of The Ron Burgundy Podcast on iHeartRadio, but we’re not going to complain just because this is an extended advertisement. This is the funniest late night TV has been in awhile. Read More »

Like the post-apocalyptic train on which its story is set, Snowpiercer has experienced a bit of a bumpy ride on its way to the small screen. Development on a television adaptation of Bong Joon-ho‘s 2014 sci-fi film – which itself was an adaptation of the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige – first began back in 2015, but soon careened off track by losing both its showrunner and the director of its pilot. But now, years later, things seem a bit steadier, and the first Snowpiercer TV series trailer is here. Watch it below. Read More »
