Conan O’Brien can’t be stopped.
Even with the news that the format of his talk show, Conan, may be changing, the comedian isn’t letting it affect his work ethic. Variety announced that O’Brien is working with TBS to expand his segment “Clueless Gamer” into a television show. O’Brien obviously has a preexisting relationship with TBS, as the channel currently shows Conan, which gave “Clueless Gamer” its fans.
In each “Clueless Gamer” segment, Conan O’Brien attempts to play and succeed at various video games. As an admitted novice of video games, he’s often joined by a more experienced gamer and occasional celebrity guests such as Peter Dinklage, Conor McGregor, and Marshawn Lynch.

O’Brien isn’t expected to host the series, but the Conan spin-off is being produced by his company Conanco and IMG. Kevin Reilly, Turner Entertainment chief, even spoke about the burgeoning new series: “Next month we’re going to go into production on a new series called Clueless Gamer, based on one of [O’Brien’s] viral videos. Celebrities play videos and he makes fun of them. It’s really broken out. We’ve had companies sending us their games pre-release.”
The series has not yet received an official series order.
