Conan O’Brien is getting ready to leave the world of late-night television. TBS has released a list of some of the guests set to appear on the final two weeks of the Conan talk show. Viewers will also see a live audience in attendance for the filming of the episodes. O’Brien has been on late-night television for more than 20 years. He joined TBS in 2010.

While O’Brien is leaving late night, the host has signed a deal with HBO Max for a new weekly variety series. “In 1993 Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform,’” O’Brien said. “I’m thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription.”
