TNT and TBS are hip-deep in a “radical transformation” designed to keep the networks vibrant in a survival-of-the-fittest moment for traditional networks. That’s what TNT and TBS president Kevin Reilly told reporters Thursday morning during Turner’s portion of the summer Television Critics Assn. press tour. “We’ll be radically different in two years than we are sitting… Read more »
SHOPPING DISCOUNT UPDATE:
There is only one warrior Conan, and he was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1980s. Unfortunately for the late-night host of the same name, there is not the same level of fear struck in the hearts of opponents when they hear the name Conan O’Brien.
So you can imagine that Wonder Woman Gal Gadot felt pretty confident going into a training session with Coco.

New York, January 1896: Arthur Conan Doyle, the renowned creator of Sherlock Holmes, arrives at the Britannic Hotel with his wife, Louisa, ready to begin his first American tour. While he prepares his lectures, Louisa becomes mesmerised by this brash, vibrant, dangerous city, especially when a woman’s brutally butchered corpse is found in a Bowery alley and Louisa is convinced from the artist’s sketch in the paper that she’d seen the victim at the hotel.
Arthur is patronisingly sceptical about her womanly “fantasies” but when she sprains her ankle and is forced to remain at the hotel while Arthur goes on tour, Louisa cannot resist pursuing her intuitions. And when more bodies start appearing, she’s convinced that she holds the key to the killings. With the help of the hotel’s hard-bitten detective and an ambitious female news reporter, Louisa starts to piece together a story of madness, murder, and depravity – a story that leads inexorably back to the hotel itself, the strange story of its unique construction, and a madman who is watching her every move.

Sorry, Tinder. You’ve been swiped left.
After Conan O’Brien’s crazy adventures with Dave Franco on Tinder, he decided to try out another popular dating app for one of his hilarious remote segments. This time around, the talk show host invited comedian Billy Eichner to help him navigate the world of Grindr: an app geared towards gay, bisexual and bi-curious men.
If anything, O’Brien took his Tinder experience and cranked it to 11. The talk show host has conversations that leave nothing to the imagination (you’ll never look at a birch tree the same way again), brings a bowl of condoms that makes it look like he’s passing them out as Halloween candy and rides around in a creepy van with another glorious paint job. And incredibly, he’s actually pretty successful.
Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein appeared on “Conan” Monday night to promote the new season of “Portlandia,” but the most memorable part of their interview had more to do with Armisen’s former “Saturday Night Live” colleague, Bill Hader.
See, Hader did an impression of Armisen the last time he was on Conan’s show, and Fred wasn’t exactly thrilled. To get back at him, not only does Armisen do a weird impression of Hader, but he even gets Conan to compare the angel who gave us Stefon to Mr. Burns from “The Simpsons.”
Again, ouch. Your move, Hader!
Ever since her “West Wing” days, Allison Janney has been known to be quite the entertaining live performer.
On Tuesday, the star showcased one of her signature numbers once again while appearing as a guest on “Conan.” Following some back and forth about whether or not Conan would show up if she invited him one of her parties, the actress showed the audience just what he’d find if he did. Janney breaks into a disco dance inspired by the hand motions flight attendants use, and also just plain inspired.
We’ll be here praying that our invite is in the mail.
Between this and Jon Stewart’s incredible Chicago pizza rant, last night was a great one for food diatribes on late night TV. For anyone annoyed with the newfound popularity of kale and other healthy-yet-tasteless foods that dominate culinary trends, you have a prophet in Jim Gaffigan.
The “Dad is Fat” author stopped by “Conan” last night to express his displeasure that Whole Foods devotees are trying to force him to eat leafy vegetables that taste like bug spray. “I looked at a can of bug spray, and it said, ‘Made with real kale.'”
Check out the clip above to find out why he hates kale, almond milk and secretly thinks that people who don’t eat gluten are un-American.
