There'll soon be one less combatant in the late night tv wars.

Former NBC late night host Conan O'Brien announced today he'll be ending his daily comedy series that's run on cable network TBS for the past ten years.

O'Brien plans to wrap that show up in June of 2021 and begin doing a weekly variety series for TBS' sister streaming service, HBO Max.

In a press release, O'Brien was quoted as saying, “In 1993 Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform.’"

O'Brien hosted "Late Night" on NBC from 1993 until 2009 and had a short run as host of "The Tonight Show".
