HOLLYWOOD — TBS’s late-night show host Conan O’Brien is taking his show to Armenia, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The Show star will be the first American late-night host to ever do a show from the country. Sona Movsesian, O’Brien’s longtime assistant who is of Armenian descent, has joined him. The visit is a first to the country for both and O’Brien’s broadcast will be the first by a host of an American late-night show from the nation.
The show is slated for broadcast on Time Warner’s TBS on Tuesday, November 10, at 11 p.m. and will be available a day later across digital and mobile venues operated by the network and O’Brien’s Team Coco outlets.
The trip will mark the first time in Armenia for both O’Brien and Movsesian. “I think it’s every boss’s responsibility to take their assistant back to their ancestral land,” said O’Brien. “That’s why I’m going to make sure my next assistant was born in a five-star resort in Tuscany.”
In addition to doing shows in New York, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta, the host most recently filmed Conan from Comic Con in San Diego. In the spring, he made headlines as the first American late-night host to shoot in Cuba in more than 50 years.
O’Brien is planning to continue to do shows from various locations around the globe, with specific details being released over the next few months.
Conan airs Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m.
