8 Feb

According to the web site Gamasutra TV comedian Conan O’Brien almost ended up doing a show to be shown exclusively on the Xbox 360. According to executive producer Jeff Ross, Microsoft approached Conan O’Brien after he left NBC

these guys and they show you all this stuff that they’re developing and
it’s mind blowing,” said Ross. “I think it’s coming and it’s big. It’s

was.” Apparently things didn’t pan out because Microsoft was unclear
about the direction they wanted to go in if Conan decided to come on
board. This lead to Conan ending up on TBS. To read more about this story Click Here!
