His new show, entitled simply Conan, débuts on TBS in the States in November. But for my all time favourite O’Brien moment, you’d have to go back to the Late Show in 1997, and this appearance by Norm MacDonald, in which the comedian hilariously sabotages O’Brien’s interview with Courtney Thorne-Smith, one of the then-stars of Melrose Place. Whatever you do, make sure to watch the whole way through to the very end. For the full episode, these are parts one, two and three.
