As part of today's presentation by TBS and TNT at the upfronts, the Turner networks announced that Conan O'Brien and his late-night crew would return to New York City for one week of Conan shows at the end of October.
The shows from Oct. 31-Nov. 3 will be held at the Beacon Theatre. Yes. It'll mark his first anniversary since joining TBS, and also mark his first time doing his late-night talk-show in NYC since he hosted Late Night for NBC. No word in the announcement or on the Beacon site about when tickets will become available and how they'll be distributed. But I'll be sure to tell you as soon as I find out.
An additional trip will find Conan traveling to Chicago sometime in 2012. Anyone want to bet me that it'll be in June? Several members of Team Coco filmed a TBS special in Chicago last June hosted by Andy Richter as part of the Just For Laughs Chicago festival (which is sponsored by TBS).
