TBS said the final weeks of the show will feature special guests and “an extended hour-long finale with a look back at the last 11 years of this iteration of O’Brien’s long late night career.”
O’Brien moved to TBS in 2010, where he has been for more than a decade.
He discussed the ending of his show on “Conan” on Monday.
“A very old Buddhist monk once told me that in order to pick something up, you have to put something away,” O’Brien said. “I have to be honest with you, he was full of the skull and very belligerent. And I maintain that you can pick up two things if you use both hands. He just got mad and started swinging at me, so I ended the conversation. and took his counsel. “
O’Brien added that he was “very proud of what we have achieved” on the show.
“And so what I want is that I want the last few weeks to be a joyous look back at all the absurd madness that my team and I have devised,” he said. “Best of all, I just want to point out that there will be shockingly few, if any, references to Donald Trump because it’s always been my favorite form of comedy.”
