Tonight, there’s a new late night talk show host in town. Comedian Pete Holmes and his late night TV show, The Pete Holmes Show will launch tonight on TBS immediately following Conan as a lead in. Conan has been a fan of Holmes for quite a while and months ago made the announcement that his production company, Team Coco will begin developing a late night vehicle for Holmes.
That wait is over and only one week after Chris Hardwick joined the late night fray with @midnight, and a few months before Seth Meyers assumes the Late Night throne, Holmes will start with his show. And while many comedy fans may already be familiar with the comedian, here’s a quick course to give you an instant knowledge of all things Pete Holmes.
