'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.

Matthew Perry to reunite with Courteney Cox on 'Cougar Town'

Did someone call for Mr. and Mrs. Bing? TBS just announced that former Friends stars Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox will be reuniting this winter when Perry guest-stars on Cougar Town.

Details about Perry’s role will be announced soon, but if he wants to fit in with the gang, we’re willing to bet he’s going to drink a little wine and make some inappropriate jokes. At least, that’s what we hope happens.

Cougar Town‘s fifth season premieres Tuesday, Jan. 7, at 10 p.m. on TBS.

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.

TNT and TBS get ready to launch 24/7 live streaming: Why now, how it will work, and more

During last week’s Upfronts presentations, Turner networks TNT and TBS announced that they will become the first entertainment networks to live stream content nationwide across multiple platforms 24/7. Cable subscribers will be able to watch a simulcast of the two networks’ programming via apps currently called TNT and TBS that will soon be rebranded as Watch TNT and Watch TBS.

Turner (which, like EW, is owned by TimeWarner) already streams live content for its networks CNN, HLN, and Cartoon Network, though only CNN and HLN stream 24/7. News and sports were among the first types of programming Turner made available live. Jeremy Legg, Turner SVP of business development and multi-platform distribution told EW that “it got to the point where we felt like the market was mature enough that we bring the next set of content online. So our general entertainment networks were the next logical place to begin streaming. This is in some ways the last set of streaming that we’re doing rather than the first…. It’s obvious to us that consumers want to be able to access our content on these other platforms.” READ FULL STORY

TBS pilot 'Ground Floor' to reunite 'Pitch Perfect' co-stars Skylar Astin and Alexis Knapp

Last fall’s irresistible college a cappella singing competition comedy Pitch Perfect came out of nowhere to score big box office and critical raves, and now two of the film’s co-stars are looking to recreate some of that spark for TBS.

Alexis Knapp has been added as a series regular in the network’s Bill Lawrence (Cougar Town) comedy pilot Ground Floor, TBS confirms to EW. She joins her already-cast Perfect co-star Skylar Astin, who stars as a nearing-30 alpha male that, after some run-ins with his company’s tight-knit, happy-go-lucky support staff, realizes his own life isn’t as perfect as he once thought.

Knapp will play a sexy co-worker who prefers to hit the bars at night and catch up on her sleep at work.
