One of the longest running teams in late-night television will again take the stage together as Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter join forces on “Conan,” which premieres Monday, Nov. 8, at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. A collaboration that began Sept. 13, 1993, O’Brien and Richter have developed a comedic chemistry that few performers have achieved. Through two late-night franchises and the recently concluded “The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour,” Richter has been a consistent asset to O’Brien. Andy Richter stated, “I’m thrilled to be going back to work with Conan, and very excited to start a whole new venture on TBS. However, I am mostly looking forward to getting out of the house again. “Conan O’Brien added, “This decision was made without my authority. I will get to the bottom of this. “Conan will originate from Stage 15 at Warner Bros. Studios and will be produced by Conaco LLC. Jeff Ross is the executive producer.

What’s the hub

October 11, 2010

A hub is a place where great things come together, and that’s what The Hub TV channel is all about! The Hub is a fun destination that brings kids and their families together to enjoy clever stories and engaging characters in new and classic comedies, animated adventures, movies, and live-action shows. The Hub is brought to you by two of the best names in entertainment: Discovery Communications and Hasbro, Inc.

Hub TV is bringing shows like

Transformers Prime

Roll out with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Ratchet, Bulkhead, and more as the heroic Autobots battle the evil Decepticons. Now that big bad Megatron has a rare element that lets him rule over life itself, “Team Prime” needs human help more than ever. That’s where the Teens — Jack, Miko, and Raf — come in. As they work together to defend Earth, the drama is just as intense as the heavy metal action.

GI Joe Renegades

Soldiers … heroes … outlaws. On the run after being accused of crimes they didn’t commit, six young G.I.s battle to clear their names — and expose the real bad guys, COBRA Industries. The world thinks this giant corporation is the good guys, but it’s really run by evil people who want to rule the planet. It’s up to these renegade Joes to stop COBRA and save the world — and themselves

And even old favorites with a new look

Pound Puppies

“A pup for every person and a person for every pup.” That’s the motto of the Pound Puppies, a team of fearless dogs whose sworn mission is to find homes for lonely puppies. They only LOOK like regular dogs. In fact, these pooches are dogs of action who match up pups with loving families — while they keep the humans at Shelter 17 clueless. Sometimes dogs are dogs’ best friend.

Fraggle Rock

Behind the wall of an inventor’s workshop is a place called Fraggle Rock. It’s a land of bright, colorful caves where the fun-loving Fraggles live. Gobo, Red, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, and the others spend their days laughing, singing, and playing. They also go on exciting adventures and meet other forms of life as they explore their amazing world.

Meanwhile his old teen crush, her mother worked at their estate, has lived in the Amazon for years with her daughter, Puddle. Puddle is finally out of the jungle and wants to stay in the states. Arnett makes up his own humanitarian award presentation to get her to come back to the states. To show her he is a humanitarian, he flight overnight (sure he does) to find the tribe she has been trying to help preserve their ancient culture. Then he brings them to his mansion and proudly shows her his surprise the next day. The tribe is in his pool.
