TOMORROW NIGHT: THE RETURN OF CONAN

Yes, indeed, Monday night is the night Conan O'Brien's new show on TBS debuts in late night. The show also airs very late in Canada on CTV at 1 am, and a little earlier on the Comedy Network. Check your local listings, the times may have changed (as you know).

Now that he is back working on TV, hopefully Conan will feel a bit better about life in general after that miserable departure of his from NBC.

Predictably, The Late Shift author Bill Carter is back again with yet another book chronicling the late-night TV wars and all the behind-the-scenes stuff that went on, this one called The War for Late Night. Conan talked about how toxic things got with NBC when he went on 60 Minutes and we get a good idea of what he meant by that with Carter's book. Here's an excerpt of Carter's account, told in the pages of Vanity Fair.
