Conan O'Brien will continue to host his TBS talk show four nights a week, but the reduced workload will allow him to do more work outside the studio, including "Conan Without Borders" episodes that he has excelled at in recent years. The Conan makeover is part of TBS' long-term plan for the late-night host. “Since I inherited my Late Night show in 1993, TV has changed exponentially,” Conan said in a statement. “I’d like to think I have evolved with many of these changes, but now it’s time to take the next leap. A half-hour show will give me the time to do a higher percentage of the comedy in, and out, of the studio that I love and that seems to resonate in this new digital world. It’s still going to be me hosting a very silly show, but I want segments on my half-hour program to link to digital content, deepening the experience for my younger fans, and confusing my older ones.” ALSO: Conan's entire Late Night with Conan O’Brien NBC archives will soon be available on Team Coco -- including the Masturbating Bear.
