Conan O’Brien’s new home for his TBS show will be the historic Warner Bros. lot, making a tour of the studio essential for next fall, writes Joe Adalian in New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.
The decision, though, isn’t surprising, given that TBS is owned by Time Warner, which in part owns Warner Bros. The lot is also home to Ellen DeGeneres’ syndicated daytime show and the network’s late-night show from George Lopez.
Nevertheless, since O’Brien will own his new show, he could have picked almost any location for his new studio, and there had been chatter that he might return to his NBC studio on the Universal Lot.
"In the end, choosing Warner’s seemed to be the best solution (and probably made the most financial sense)," Adalian writes.
