Instead of just Conan, maybe the new show should be called Conandy. E! Online reports Andy Richter will return as the sidekick when Conan O'Brien's new late night show, Conan, premieres Nov. 8 on TBS.
Richter released a statement saying, "I'm thrilled to be going back to work with Conan, and very excited to start a whole new venture on TBS. However, I am mostly looking forward to getting out of the house again."
O'Brien reacted to Richter's news by joking, "This decision was made without my authority. I will get to the bottom of this."
Richter, who started out with O'Brien on Late Night before leaving for several years, reunited with O'Brien during his stint on The Tonight Show.
