'Conan' to broadcast from Comic-Con in 2015

Conan O’Brien is going to Comic-Con — in 2015.

TBS announced Monday that Conan will broadcast an entire week of shows (July 8-12, 2015) from San Diego’s Spreckels Theater. (So perhaps we can take Conan off the David Letterman replacement lists?)

This marks the first time a late-night program has ever broadcast from San Diego during the event, the network said.

This year, Comic-Con will take place from July 17-24.

Mel Brooks to honor Sid Caesar on 'Conan'

Mel Brooks is set to appear on Conan next week to share stories of his late friend, Sid Caesar. The legendary TV comedian passed away earlier this week, and Conan O’Brien is honoring him on his show Tuesday night. Brooks will be there for most of the show to talk about being Caesar’s friend, and also about working with Caesar — Brooks was a writer for ’50s variety show Your Show of Shows, which Caesar starred in. Last year, O’Brien had Brooks on his Serious Jibber-Jabber web series for an hour-long chat.

Tune in to TBS on Tuesday at 11 p.m. to see Brooks and O’Brien pay tribute.

Ron Burgundy -- er, Will Ferrell -- will return to 'Conan' in November

Prepare your mustache combs and dust off the old jazz flute: On Nov. 21, Ron Burgundy is coming back to ConanUpdate: The Burgundy bit will now air on Conan‘s Nov. 20 episode.

As you may recall, Burgundy — a.k.a. Will Ferrell — last stopped by Conan O’Brien’s TBS show to break the news that Anchorman‘s long-anticipated sequel had finally been greenlit. This time around, Ferrell-as-Burgundy will apparently stick around for “a much longer conversation,” according to a release — one mainly about Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings, an Anchorman 2 tie-in book/Burgundy “autobiography” that hits shelves Nov. 18. Anchorman 2 debuts a month later, on Dec. 20.

“It’s thrilling to be on the Conan O’Brien show, a top flight show. I’m excited to hear he’s still on television,” “Burgundy” said in a statement.
