Here's a Bunch of Old "Satellite TV" Sketches from 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien'

Late Night with Conan O'Brien was home to countless weird and wonderful sketches during its run on NBC from 1993-2009, and over the past week a YouTube user has been uploading old clips of the recurring "Satellite TV" segment, in which O'Brien would share with the audience some of the stranger channels picked up by 30 Rockefeller's giant satellite dish.

Conan O'Brien Reviews 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare'

Conan O'Brien returned for a brand new installment of "Clueless Gamer" last night with his gaming buddy Aaron Bleyaert, this time to review the latest Call of Duty game Advanced Warfare featuring a computer animated Kevin Spacey with "the eyes of a carp that's been in the refrigerator for three days." As usual, Conan isn't the most skilled gamer in the world, which leads to plenty of entertaining moments: "What's the 'go back home and go to law school' button?"

Watch Conan O'Brien's Heartfelt Tribute to Robin Williams

Conan O'Brien was nearly finished taping last night's episode of Conan when news broke of Robin Williams's tragic death, but the late night host still took the time to film a brief tribute to the late comedian.

Conan O'Brien Loves and Hates Being a Late Night Host

"It’s the yin-yang of it. My favorite part of the job is that we do one every day, and my least favorite part of the job is that we do one every day … It’s like magnets that are constantly attracted and repelled from each other. Going in every day is fantastic. You get this fresh shot, you can redefine your job every day. And then there are days when I’m talking to actors and they’re telling me about going to shoot a movie and then getting six weeks off. And I’m thinking, 'What am I doing? I’m chained to my desk.' You get this wanderlust. I want to get [...]

Conan O'Brien Reviews 'Assassin's Creed: Unity' for "Clueless Gamer"

It's been a week since Conan O'Brien reviewed Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, but during last night's Conan the "Clueless Gamer" segment returned, this time with a sneak peek of the brand new game Assassin's Creed: Unity.

Max Weinberg and Conan O'Brien Have a Glorious Late Night Reunion

Conan O'Brien Set to Perform "The Monorail Song" at the Live 'Simpsons' Event

Conan Reviews the New 'Super Smash Bros' in the Latest "Clueless Gamer" Segment

Conan O'Brien returned with a new "Clueless Gamer" segment yesterday, this time to review the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. Wii U game.

The 'Conan' Crew Delivers a Heartfelt Eulogy for Larry the Pencil Sharpener

A senseless and tragic loss took place during last night's Conan when O'Brien insisted that crew member Larry quickly sharpen a pencil — a demand that ultimately led to Larry's death.

Conan O'Brien and Brian Stack Want to Make "Anon" a Cool Word Again
