TBS Debuts ‘Conan’ Print Ad, Owl

With less than two months remaining before Conan O’Brien joins TBS’ must-see late night lineup (ha), the station is debuting its first print advertising for the simply titled Conan.

The ad, depicting the show’s deranged, grizzled and wide-eyed host with a comparatively calm looking owl perched on his shoulder, is sure to make O’Brien’s primate friend a bit jealous. It also seems to be continuing Coco’s recent “in your face” persona, which hasn’t let up since his NBC late night show was canceled in early January.

Conan, we get it. You got a raw deal, you were screwed by your network and you had every right to grow a disgusting beard and whine about your misfortune incessantly for the last nine months. Now, before you lose whatever goodwill you have, can you just go away for a while?
