Conan O'Brien



TBS's CONAN will go international for the sixth time in two years as host Conan O'Brien travels to Mexico City for the brand new primetime special CONAN Without Borders: Made in Mexico. The hour-long special is set to premiere Wednesday, March 1, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TBS.

"Although I'm eager to make a show in Mexico, if the U.S. government meets my demand for $100 million in tax incentives, I will consider relocating production to Akron." said O'Brien.

CONAN Without Borders: Made in Mexico marks O'Brien's sixth international adventure in the past two years. Most recently he traveled to Berlin, where h…
