How hot is Conan O’Brien? Tonight his new show debuts on TBS at 11 p.m. ET, and today it was announced that he’s going to be a spokesman for American Express, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The credit card giant will begin airing Conan’s new ads tonight.

Since last year when Conan did his comedy tour, Amex has been trying to convince him to be its pitchman. In exchange for Conan’s services, the comic is reportedly being paid more than $1 million.

O’Brien cited previous Amex ads featuring Jerry Seinfeld, Tina Fey and Martin Scorsese as influencing his decision to join the company’s latest campaign.
