TBS's "CONAN" Heads Back to New York City for a Week Of Shows From the Famous Apollo Theater Oct. 31 - Nov. 3
TBS's late-night series CONAN is heading back to New York City for the first time in exactly six years for a week of shows from Harlem's Apollo Theater. Host Conan O'Brien last did his show from the Big Apple in 2010 at the Beacon Theatre. This fall's visit to New York, set to take place Oct. 31 - Nov. 3, will continue O'Brien's innovative combination of international road episodes and live shows from various cities across the United States.
In addition to this week of shows in New York, CONAN will once again be doing a week of shows from Comic-Con(R) International in San Diego this July. This will mark his second year in a row at the convention, after being the first late night host ever to do live shows from the event in the summer of 2015.
CONAN has been extremely active over the past 12 months. He most recently travelled to Korea for a special extended episode to air this Saturday, April 9, at 11 p.m. (ET/PT). Last year, he made headlines as the first American late-night host to shoot in Cuba in more than 50 years. In November, he became the first American late-night personality ever to host a show from Armenia. And in January 2016, he joined First Lady Michelle Obama in Doha, Qatar, to perform for the troops stationed overseas. In previous years, O'Brien has done special shows from New York, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta.
CONAN airs Monday-Thursday at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. The show is produced by Conaco LLC, with Jeff Ross serving as executive producer.
