Conan O’Brien is set to appear on CBS’ The Late Show With David Letterman for the first time in 13 years.
During the NBC Tonight Show ordeal where the unfunny Jay Leno refused to leave the network, Dave was a huge supporter of Conan. The Late Show host made jokes at Leno (and NBC’s Jeff Zucker’s) expense over several episodes. If you remember, Letterman had a similar experience with NBC when they chose Leno over Letterman as the new host of The Tonight Show (when it is often said Carson preferred Letterman).
O’Brien took over Late Night in 1993 after Letterman left for Late Show, hosting Late Night until 2009 before he briefly became the host of Tonight Show until January 2010. In November, O’Brien began hosting TBS’ Conan.
Conan is set to appear on The Late Show on May 17 at 11:35/10:35 central.
