TELEVISION: TBS Outfoxes Fox; Snags Conan!


Conan O’Brien has a new home and it’s on TBS – not Fox Television.

According to a press release from TBS,  O’Brien will premiere his 11 p.m. talk show show in November. The move will shift George Lopez’s show to midnight. Today’s announcement comes as O’Brien begins his national comedy tour in Eugene, Oregon.

In announcing the deal, O’Brien said, in a typically tongue-in-cheek tone, ”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.”
