Talk about planning ahead. He’s hosting the MTV Movie Awards for the first time on April 13 and now Conan O’Brien is climbing another pop culture mountain by heading to Comic-Con next year. The TBS late night host plans to broadcast his show from July 8 – 12, 2015 when the studios, the networks and hundreds of thousands of the geekest geeks in geekdom all head to San Diego. In the first time a late night show has broadcast from Comic-Con, CONAN will take over the downtown Spreckels Theater. The production closed the deal on the theater today, a source tells me.Additionally, this is the clearest indication that Conan truly isn’t in the running to take over CBS’ Late Show when David Letterman retires next year. While this is the first time a late nigh show has aired from Comic-Con, this won’t be the first time O’Brien has been to the confab. He was down there in 2011 to promote his animated alter ego the “Flaming C “during a panel for the Green Lantern Animated series panel.
