Conan O'Brien to make TBS new late-night home, kills rumours Fox would get him
April 12, 2010 3:55 p.m.
Late-night mainstay Conan O’Brien is headed to TBS to resume his comedic duties with a talk show expected to debut in November, the network said Monday.

The program will air Mondays through Thursdays at 11 p.m. Eastern, shifting TBS’ “Lopez Tonight,” starring George Lopez, to midnight.

The surprise announcement hit the same day O’Brien starts a two-month, North American comedy tour in Eugene, Ore., amid persistent reports that he was likely to claim Fox as his new late-night home.

Barring Fox, syndication was widely considered O’Brien’s most likely option. Few if anyone mentioned TBS as a plausible destination.

O’Brien began serious talks with TBS just last week, the network said.

O’Brien left NBC in January after hosting “The Tonight Show” for just eight months, as his ratings plunged from those of his longtime “Tonight” predecessor, Jay Leno, who reclaimed the hour. Until last June, O’Brien had followed Leno as host of “Late Night” since 1993.

After giving O’Brien “Tonight,” NBC sought to keep Leno on board with a prime-time show that quickly flopped. An attempt to move O’Brien to a post-midnight slot drew O’Brien’s ire, and he walked away with a $32 million settlement package.

Conan O’Brien was born on April 18th, 1963
April 18th
4 + 18 +2+0+0+9 = 33 = his personal year (from April 18th, 2009 to April 18th, 2010)
33 year + 3 (March) = 36 = his personal year (from March 18th, 2010 to April 18th, 2010)
36 month + 12 (12th of the month on Monday April 12th, 2010) = 48 = his personal day = Purpose.  Meaning.  Mission.  Direction.  Destination.  Guidance.  Goals.  Aims.  Worthwhile.  Journey.  Tour.  Traveler.  Tourist.  Visitor.  Road trip.  On the road.  Unattached.  Walking away.

Tilda Swinton Up for Playing Conan O'Brien on Film 

Ask for Tilda Swinton and ye shall receive.

After the late-night time-slot shuffle on NBC that ultimately led to Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien’s exit from the network, the comedian joked in his final monologue that he wanted the fiery-haired actress to play him if HBO decided to make a movie about his life.

And Swinton has agreed, saying she would take on the role with relish if it ever happened.

“I would just be only too happy,” Swinton told Movieline.com at the Sundance Film Festival, where she is promoting I Am Love. “Yes, yes, yes, absolutely.”

What the 49-year-old actress would like even more is a sort of Freaky Friday situation, where she and O’Brien switch places.

Tilda Swinton was born on November 5th, 1960 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilda_Swinton
November 5th
11 + 5 +2+0+0+9 = 27 = her personal year (from November 5th, 2009 to November 4th, 2010)
27 year + 1 (January) = 28 = her personal month (from January 5th, 2010 to February 4th, 2010)
28 month + 26 (26th of the month on January 26th, 2010) = 54 = her personal day today = Spontaneous.  Curious.  Interesting.  Fascinating…Imitate.  Impersonate.  Impression.  Monkey see, monkey do.  Flying by the seat of your pants.  Making it up as you go.  Off the cuff.  Stand-up comedy…Role reversal.  Back and forth.

O'Brien, Conan (crop).jpg

Sports executive Dick Ebersol has defended Jay Leno against comedic barbs from Conan O’Brien and David Letterman in the wake of NBC’s request to move “The Tonight Show” to 12:05 a.m.

According to The New York Times, Ebersol called O’Brien and Letterman “chicken-hearted and gutless to blame a guy you couldn’t beat in the ratings.”
