Conan's New Home

As any reader of Organized Remains knows, we love Conan O'Brien. We were morally outraged when NBC gave Conan an unfair ultimatum over his career, forcing him off TVs. Conan's been keeping busy with his twitter account and a nation-wide tour (see video below), but this fall... he returns. TBS has offered a lot, and I can not stress that rough financial estimation enough - A LOT of money for Conan to come to their station and do a new late night show from 11:00-12:00. How important is Conan to TBS, who's slogan is "we know funny"? They're letting Conan own the rights to his show! That means when Conan comes up with an idea for his show, such as the masturbating bear, he owns that idea and can take it anywhere he wants should the show not work out! Granted, this glorious show will move late-night host George Lopez back from 11:00 to 12:00, but Lopez sees it as a great opportunity for his show as well. Lopez has been getting great reviews on his show, but when Conan hops aboard, he'll bring a slew of fans with him who, if Jimmy Fallon is proof of anything, will make Lopez that much bigger a name. So everybody wins! Especially if Conan, who has a half-hour lead-in, can serve a whooping to Jay Leno in the ratings!
