Will Conan Perform Gay Wedding During NYC Stint?

Michael Tran/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- To commemorate his week-long return to New York City next week, Conan O'Brien is apparently looking to celebrate one of the Big Apple's latest attractions: legal same-sex marriage. New York magazine's Vulture website reports the talk show host will officiate the marriage of one of his longtime male staffers and his partner as part of one of the shows that will be shot at New York City's historic Beacon Theatre.

This would be the first same-sex marriage to be featured on a late night show, but at least one other talk show wedding made television history. On December 17, 1969, the late entertainer Tiny Tim married Victoria Mae Budinger -- aka "Miss Vicki" -- on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. The installment drew a massive audience: 21.4 million viewers.
