Wall or no wall.
CONAN Without Borders: Made in Mexico will air in primetime — 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on Wednesday, March 1, 2017, on TBS.
The hour-long special is set to premiere Wednesday, March 1, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TBS. O’Brien will shoot the special hour of Conan with an all-Mexican staff, crew, guests and studio audience.
“Although I’m eager to make a show in Mexico, if the U.S. government meets my demand for $100 million in tax incentives, I will consider relocating production to Akron.” said O’Brien.
Here’s his announcement, from Thursday night’s Conan.

CONAN Without Borders: Made in Mexico marks O’Brien’s sixth international adventure in the past two years. Most recently he traveled to Berlin, where he experienced everything from a dominatrix to the refugee camp at Berlin Tempelhof Airport. He has made headlines as the first American late-night host to shoot in Cuba in more than 50 years. He also became the first American late-night personality ever to host a show from Armenia, as well as South Korea. Early last year, O’Brien joined former First Lady Michelle Obama at the international Air Force Base in Doha, Qatar, to perform for the troops stationed overseas. Last year also included a week of shows from San Diego during Comic-Con® International and an additional week of shows from the legendary Apollo Theater in New York. In previous years, O’Brien has also done special shows from New York, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta.
