'Conan' Visits a Conscientious Tofurkey Farm

If you want to celebrate Thanksgiving by opting for tofurkey instead of the real thing, Conan visited McClellan Farms recently, and no one makes a more ethically acceptable tofurkey product than them. So before you choose your tofurkey brand this holiday season, please consider McClellan, because it's not humane tofurkey unless it's breastfed three times a day.

TBS Renews 'American Dad!' for a 12th Season

TBS wants to keep American Dad! around for at least another season.

Conan O'Brien decided to hand out some more Audiencey Awards during last night's show, celebrating the best in sitting, listening, and traveling to the future to stalk one's past self.

Bob Odenkirk Reads an Excerpt from 'A Load of Hooey' on 'Conan'

Bob Odenkirk is currently on tour promoting his new book A Load of Hooey, and he stopped by last night's Conan to do a live reading as a shameless politician who calls a press conference to get some skeletons out of his closet.

Conan O'Brien Drags Producer Jordan Schlansky Along to a Coffee Tasting

Conan O'Brien recently made a trip to Intelligentsia Coffee in Los Angeles to learn more about the world of coffee, and he decided to bring self-proclaimed coffee expert, Conan producer, and emotionless robot in disguise Jordan Schlansky along for the ride. Schlansky doesn't hold back about expressing his lack of respect for the American coffee scene, but that doesn't stop O'Brien from enjoying what is otherwise a wonderful learning experience.

Have you ever wanted to send a loved one an emoji message but wished it could have the personal handcrafted touch of Nick Offerman?

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?"
