Rumor: Conan O’Brien almost had his show on Xbox Live

Former Late Night/Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien will be returning to the airwaves this November via TBS. That’s not really big gaming news in itself, but the story of ‘what could have been‘ is pretty interesting.

According to unconfirmed reports, the red headed wunderkind was in talks with Microsoft to bring his ousted talk show to Xbox Live.

“There were discussions with Microsoft about an Xbox deal for Conan’s show that would have broken new ground,” the source states.

It would have been pretty interesting to see Conan on our dashboards, especially when paired with 1 vs. 100 and Netflix. But let’s not lose hope yet, this is TBS we are talking about here.
