The late night talk show wars ended with Conan O’Brien losing his show but winning America’s sympathies and he parlayed that into a new gig on TBS which the network started advertising with an irreverent Monty Python type commercial on Wednesday.
The video short is promoting O’Brien’s new show, which doesn’t have a name yet, that will debut in November.
The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien is nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy, Music or Variety Series, but Jay Leno’s late night show was passed over for a nomination. NBC submitted The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, but members of the TV academy didn’t deem him worthy of their award.
Jimmy Fallon will be hosting the Emmy Awards that will be broadcast live on NBC on August 29.
