Conan O'Brien is set to become the first late night host to do a week of shows from Comic-Con. The TBS host plans to broadcast his shows from July 8 to July 12, 2015 (yes, that's really far away) from San Diego's Spreckels Theater during the massive annual comic book convention, Deadline reports. O'Brien recently took his show to Dallas last week coinciding with the NCAA championship.
Last night, Conan O'Brien announced that he's set to host the MTV Movie Awards next month. While this is surprisingly the first time O'Brien has been hired to host the MTV awards show, he's certainly no stranger to bringing a consistently funny and delightfully weird performance to all of his hosting gigs, from his time on Late Night, The Tonight Show, and Conan to a slew of host and guest speaker spots he's had since the mid-'90s. To anticipate what's sure to be an entertaining MTV Movie Awards come April 13th, here's a look at some of Conan's best non-talk show hosting moments, from the earliest to most [...]
Tonight sees the premiere of the fourth iteration of NBC’s Late Night franchise, with Seth Meyers taking over the position previously held by David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, and Jimmy Fallon.

Although it’s unfair to judge a host based on their first show alone, it’s interesting to look back at how each era of the show started.

O'Brien gave a heartfelt speech about Caesar on his show Wednesday night, but will devote a good chunk of his episode on Tuesday the 18th to Caesar with Brooks sharing "his unique personal and professional stories" about working with the deceased.
Jay Leno's (second) final Tonight Show is set to air this Thursday, and Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Kimmel have lined up big guests to try to compete with his big finale. Leno's guests on his last episode will be Billy Crystal and Garth Brooks.
Kimmel is bringing Matt Damon in as his guest, which will be Damon's first time on Jimmy Kimmel Live since a well-received and much-watched stunt episode last January in which he took over Kimmel's show. Damon will be joined by his costars from the movie The Monuments Men: George Clooney, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, and Bob Balaban. This will mark the first Kimmel appearance [...]
