Conan O’Brien is going through even more of a late night late night transition. With his late night TBS show restructuring and turning into a leaner show perfect for the digital age, the longtime late night host is also diving into his archives and making them relevant again. Today marks the 25th anniversary of the premiere of Late Night with Conan O’Brien where he took over for David Letterman. O’Brien took to social media to announce that said first episode has been placed online and made available in its entirety to celebrate the occasion.
Watch it, John Goodman was his first ever guest.
But that’s not the only news… Conan also stated that beginning January 2019, the entire archives of his late night antics will be made available online on a freshly re-launched and state-of-the-art website that will house nearly “everything he’s ever done in late night” of the 4,000+ late night shows he’s made. Meaning archives of Late Night w/Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show, and Conan will be online starting January 2019.
Let’s all rejoice in the knowledge that we’ll soon get our long-delayed fix of The Masturbating Bear.
