Conan O’Brien’s new talk show is coming to GEM.
Simply called Conan, the new show will premiere at 11.30pm Tuesday November 9.
In the US, it airs on cable channel TBS. Conan struck a deal with TBS after his infamous falling out with NBC that included a period he could not host his own talk show on US TV.
Conan will air at 11.30pm Tuesdays – Friday, with the exception of Friday night where the air time will vary to fit in with varying movie times.
It would have been a perfect fit for the Comedy Channel who used to air a late night talk show block featuring a number of these shows, but the talk show block was axed due to extremely low viewer numbers, compared to the costs of maintaining the rights to air the shows.
Conan on GEM, TUesdays – Fridays at 11.30pm from Tue Nov 9. Later on Fridays (12.15am Nov 12).
