Conan O'Brien has been pulling out all the promotional stops for his new TBS talk show, Conan. First he made a wacky video to announce the name of the show. Then there was the 24-hour live stream from the show's offices (which is sadly now over) that featured everything from dancing tacos to intern Twister. Next he created the giant orange Conan Blimp, which flies from coast to coast through Nov. 30.
And now that we're getting super close to the actual premiere of his show (Nov. 8, 11 p.m., TBS), O'Brien has one more trick up his sleeve: On Nov. 1 at 11 p.m. he'll debut Show Zero -- the online warm-up premiere episode of his show, which will lead up to the official launch one week later.
Though the Conan staff is giving little away about Show Zero ("What is Show Zero!? (Well, if I told you, it wouldn't be a surprise, would it?)" reads a post on the TeamCoco website), we do know this much: Andy Richter, who has rejoined the show, will make an appearance, the Basic Cable Band will perform and unnamed celebrities will be guests.
The web-only show will be triple-simulcast, so you can watch it at any of these three places: TeamCoco.com, YouTube.com/TeamCoco or Facebook.com/teamcoco. So, if you can't wait until Nov. 8 for O'Brien's return to the small screen, Show Zero should hold you over. And as the Team Coco staff points out, "You guys are in for a treat!! You might want to have an extra pair of pants handy on Monday night." Challenge accepted!
Are you excited for Conan O'Brien's return to late night?
