Promoting from within!

When Conan O'Brien returns to late night next month, he's going to have a new music man running the show and the house band.

TBS announced today that Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band will be cranking out the tunes for Conan come November 17th. Jimmy was the associate music director, arranger, guitarist and vocalist for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and Late Night with Conan O'Brien, so he knows a thing or two about working with Conan.

The other band members include Scott Healy (keyboards), Mike Merritt (bass), Mark Pender (trumpet), Richie "LaBamba" Rosenberg (trombone), Jerry Vivino (saxophone, woodwinds and vocals) and James Wormworth (drums)!

Fun! Congrats, fellas!

Max Weinberg Parts Ways With Conan

We were warned about this, but now that it's actually becoming a reality…it's pretty weird.

Max Weinberg will not be returning to Conan's new TBS show, and we feel a little bit hollow inside because of it.

Come on, Max! You're a staple of the show! Don't do this to us. What divalicious demands can Conan and TBS meet to keep you on board?

Unless Weinberg's inner diva is satisfied, it looks like bandleading duties at the show will be taken over by Jimmy Vivino, who was previously the guitarist on Conan's Late Night show.

Are U sad to see Max Weinberg go?
