Conan O’Brien will do the Tonight Show on TBS!

Our prayers have finally been answered (Everyone who is part of the “I’m with CoCo” fan page) because it looks like Conan is slated to start a new late night talk show. Thank goodness. A few months without him was a few too many.

From the NY Times:
In a move that qualifies as a shocker, Conan O’Brien has made a deal to return to television in a new late-night show on cable—not network—television.

The former “Tonight Show” host has agreed to start up a new show on TBS, the comedy-oriented cable channel in the Turner network lineup. The new show will start in November and play at 11 p.m. weeknights, teamed with that network’s other late-night show, hosted by George Lopez. That show, now at 11, will slide to midnight.

In a release accompanying the announcement Mr. O’Brien said: “In three months I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I’m headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly.”
