Watch out, Jay Leno: Conan’s back to kick your ass.
Coco’s officially going to TBS After Dark for a talk show that is expected to debut in November, the network announced on Monday.
Today’s announcement comes the same day O’Brien kicks off a long-awaited two-month, nationwide comedy tour — his first major gig since leaving his post as host of NBC’s The Tonight Show in February.
O’Brien began serious talks with TBS just last week, the network said.
“In three months, I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I’m headed to basic cable,” quips O’Brien. “My plan is working perfectly.”
The hour-long program will air Mondays through Thursdays at 11 PM, shifting George Lopez’s Lopez Tonight to midnight.
