Late Night with Conan O'Brien

Late Night with Conan O'Brien is an American late night television talk show on NBC featuring varied comedic material and celebrity interviews. From the show's inception until May 2000, Andy Richter served as cohost alongside Conan O'Brien. O'Brien is currently the sole host of the show.

Late Night has followed The Tonight Show on the NBC network for decades. The Tonight Show has always had more viewers than Late Night. However, Late Night has always had a stronger hold on the much sought-after 25 to 35 age bracket than The Tonight Show, which tends to attract older viewers.

In 1993, O'Brien replaced David Letterman, long time host of the Late Night with David Letterman, when Letterman left NBC to host the Late Show with David Letterman on CBS.

O'Brien began his stint at Late Night after serving as a writer for The Simpsons.

Late Night with Conan O'Brien makes frequent use of running jokess, such as If They Mated, In the Year 2000, and SAT Analogies. In addition, regular characters such as Masturbating Bear, Pimpbot 5000, and Coked-Up Werewolf play an active role in the show.

O'Brien's show also launched the career of Robert Smigel's Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog.

Drummer Max Weinberg of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band fame, leads the "Max Weinberg 7."
