The new show is being produced by Conan O’Brien’s Conaco production company and will air Mondays through Thursdays in a Fall 2013 run right after Conan as a sort of companion show.
“Pete Holmes is an enormously likable performer with an agile and innovative mind,” Deadline quotes Conan as saying. “I’m really looking forward to his show, and I’ve already had my son program my DVR.” For his part, the article quotes Pete as saying, “The first half of my meeting with Conan was spent making sure this wasn’t all part of a new TBS prank show called You Got Coned! The second half was spent expressing my sincerest enthusiasm and gratitude for this incredible dream come true.”
Awwwww. Anyway, look for it in the Fall. We’ll remind you. Meanwhile, keep listening to Pete’s You Made It Weird, one of the many fine Nerdist podcast network offerings.
