    Been watching Conan regularly since 98. This is a great next step for his career.

    If it's anything like that tour he did (I think post-Tonight Show and pre-TBS), I'll be pretty excited.

    Right because the streaming option where they put crap shows is going to stick around.

    If I had to bet on one it would definitely be the streaming service :idk:

    Curious, what do you think HBO is already? I mean since it can be streamed via it's app or Amazon prime etc...

    Conan is King. Excited for this new chapter. Will he still be wearing his tiny denim jackets?

    It will all be merged into HBO Max or whatever you want to call it, one streaming platform independent of tv providers. Disney+ has already written the blueprint. Cable providers as we know them will not be around much longer.

    Yep. And then we will eventually revert back to traditional cable providers because people will be sick of paying for a million different streaming services.

    But part of the fun of cutting the cord is paying all those different streaming services so much that you're not saving money doing it

    More or less, but they’ll just start bundling the streaming services...which is effectively the same thing

    My lasting Conan on TBS memory will be Will Forte as Ted Turner. Always killed me.

    this post upsets me because I'm a bored and slightly buzzed Letterman stan (and we know the role Letterman played in shaping what Conan chose to do format wise) but he was definitely outstanding in his own right.

    also, I think Triumph in the star wars line and Conan in Ireland were better than old time baseball :yousoright:

    Been watching Conan forever. Saw him live in Chicago a few years ago and was hilarious.

    Late Night was always his best work but he's still great. Podcast is good too.

    When NBC bought the company that had the rights to walker texas ranger and Conan had the walker texas ranger lever. He would just pull it and we would get great random walker moments. One of my favorite things he did
