Conan O’Brien returned to TV last night with the debut episode of his new TBS show, Conan.
The show opened with a pre-record video montage called “Last season on ‘Conan'” which shows Conan getting fired at NBC, getting turned down at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (by Jon Hamm!), doing a short stint at Burger King and finally meeting with Larry King who had just two words for him: “Basic cable.”
The rest of the show was typical Conan including a couple string dances and a few cracks at NBC. “It’s not easy doing a late-night show on a channel without a lot of money and that people have trouble finding. That’s why I left NBC,” he quipped.
