Natalie Dormer imagines how her character will die on 'Game of Thrones'

No one in Westeros is safe from George R.R. Martin’s keyboard, so it only makes sense for the actors on Game of Thrones to prepare themselves for, if not an inevitable, than a likely death.

Kurt Sutter to host Tuesday's 'Anarchy Afterword'

FX’s Sons of Anarchy aftershow, Anarchy Afterword, returns to FX tonight following episode 10, and fans will be happy to see who’s at the head of the table. Show creator Kurt Sutter will moderate the conversation with guests Charlie Hunnam and Tommy Flanagan. Kim Coates and guest star Walton Goggins will also make special appearances.

The super-sized episode will run until 11:36 p.m. ET, with the aftershow scheduled to wrap at 12:30 a.m. ET. That means the cast, many of whom will join Sutter on TBS’ Conan tonight at 11 p.m. ET, will be going up against themselves in the ratings. READ FULL STORY

'Orange Is the New Black' cast to make joint appearance on 'Conan'

The ladies of Litchfield (and one male counterpart) are headed to Conan for their first-ever late-night appearance as a group.

On Monday, August 4, the cast of Netflix’s Emmy-nominated show Orange Is the New Black, including Taylor Schilling, Laverne Cox, Uzo Aduba, Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne, and Jason Biggs, will join Conan on stage for his third group interview of the sort. Conan has previously featured the casts of The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad in a similar format.

Conan airs at 11 p.m. on TBS.

Conan O'Brien's TBS show renewed through 2018

At least Conan O’Brien isn’t going to retire anytime soon. TBS has given a big renewal to Conan, extending the talk show through 2018. That adds another three years onto O’Brien’s previous deal with the cable network.

“Over the past four years, we have built a terrific relationship with Conan O’Brien and are thrilled to be extending his series for another three years,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS.  “Conan has not only brought an incredibly young audience to TBS but has also created a digital presence that draws millions of fans to his unique brand of comedy. In addition, Conan has taken his show on the road for memorable weeks in New York, Atlanta and last month in Dallas, and will be breaking new ground next year when Conan becomes the first late-night show to tape at Comic-Con.”

The 51-year-old former host of NBC’s Tonight Show averages 862,000 viewers including DVR playback, but TBS says he has more adults 18-34 than some of his bigger competitors — including CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

'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.
