This is how Conan O’Brien opened his tenure on TBS: Previously on “Conan,” the cold open video

I'll have more to say about Conan O'Brien and his re-return to late-night TV soon enough, but for now, perhaps you'd just like to see how Conan opened Conan on TBS. He did so through a clever conceit, using a popular television thematic device called "Previously on Conan." You'll notice cameos from several of his writers, including Andres du Bouchet as the toll-taker, plus Matt O'Brien, Brian Kiley, Dan Cronin and Brian Stack as the gun-toting assassins. And some other big celebrities. SPOILER ALERTS!

Roll the clip!
