Probably the funniest talk show Hoster, Coco O’Brien returns Monday with its new show American channel TBS, CONAN.
He returns to TV after almost a year he missed because of a contractual clause with NBC, where he was banished. Among the guests the first week of the show include Seth Rogen, Tom Hanks, Michael Cera. The show receives fair guarantee that it will be spectacular, so it’s worth to watch. Full episodes will appear on the official site www.teamcoco.com.
Conan O’Brien gave up on “The Tonight Show”, after reaching a deal with NBC about one year ago, when Jay Leno was back.
Trouble began after NBC television admitted on 10 January that audiences “The Jay Leno Show” at 22.00 were not as significant as expected, given that time slot is dedicated to TV serials and announced that Leno intends to move to his old slot. O’Brien made it known that he would not cooperate with NBC and will not accept that the show be moved to after midnight, forcing the network to make a choice between him and Jay Leno.
In total, according to information circulating in the market, O’Brian’s leaving from NBC, made a $52.6-million bill, which include, in addition to the 45 million dollars compensation, the costs of closing the show.
“This is an exciting night. I’m really glad to be on cable … The truth is, ladies and gentleman, I have dreamed of being a talk show host on basic cable ever since I was 46. And things are already going very well. I am happy to report right now … that we’re already No. 1 in TBS’s key demographic — people who can’t afford HBO.” said Conan O’Brien at his return on cable.
