    Conan O'Brien to end talk-show hosting run after 28 years

    The longest-serving late-night host is leaving late night.

    “Conan,” the TBS show hosted by Conan O’Brien, will go off the air in June, and the host will move on to HBO Max, where he plans to have his own weekly variety series, Warner Media announced on Tuesday.

    The primary reason I got a TiVo in 2001 was that I was finally sick and tired of having to set the VCR to record "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" every night (and make sure the cable box was on the correct channel before I went to bed). End of an era!

    Geez, 28 Yrs ?! And I still think of him as young ... I feel so old. I haven’t wanted to watch late night since Carson, and I remember when he first started. I **am** old!

    I never cared for him. He seemed a little creepy to me back when I tried watching him.

    I thought it was just me. Several (or so) years ago I would try to watch sometimes, if he was having a guest I wanted to see, and he just did some things that skeeved me out. Definitely creepy.

    I saw him live a couple of years ago. Best live comedy act I've ever seen. He was amazing - and really knew how to work the crowd.

    I saw his "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour", and his "Standup Tour" — Both excellent (for me to poop on!).
