‘Conan’ on TBS to Cut Back to Half-Hour in 2019
TBS will scale back Conan O’Brien’s late-night series “Conan” to a half-hour in 2019, the network said on Thursday.
“Since I inherited my ‘Late Night show’ in 1993, TV has changed exponentially. I’d like to think I have evolved with many of these changes, but now it’s time to take the next leap. A half-hour show will give me the time to do a higher percentage of the comedy in, and out, of the studio that I love and that seems to resonate in this new digital world,” O’Brien said about the changes. “It’s still going to be me hosting a very silly show, but I want segments on my half-hour program to link to digital content, deepening the experience for my younger fans, and confusing my older ones.”
