Conan’s TBS offices on the day Los Angeles melted

Oh, hello. Yes, that's right. In case you weren't anywhere near Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 27, 2010, you may not have heard that Southern California registered its hottest-ever recorded temperatures yesterday. Through the roof triple-digit Fahrenheit readings.

We learned officially that Max Weinberg would not be joining Conan O'Brien and Team Coco on his TBS show when it bows in November. We saw that Conan and TBS have a bunch of short promo clips set to the 1980s tune, "Missing You." And we got to take a look under Conan's new TBS stage. Roll the clip.

Me_conaco But what else can I tell you?

It's not as if I've actually been inside the Warner Bros. lot and seen Conan's employees in their unnatural environment…(yes, I forgot to apply sunscreen)

They didn't make me sign any nondisclosure agreements, but I know that Team Coco is pretty set in their desire to break their news their own way. So. I shan't be giving you any sordid details. Although I can tell you that even Andy Richter wears shorts when the temperature approaches 117 degrees in Burbank in a dry heat.

Other tidbits I'm fairly certain I can reveal: They're out shooting their first actual video today that will air on the show in November. Also, if you're wondering what happened to Last Comic Standing finalist Laurie Kilmartin, she's now a writer for Conan. Congrats, Laurie!

Keep posted to Team Coco for further updates, or just to watch Conan get a Ph.D. to do a fan's astronomy homework.
