His show will be returning to television March 30th. Continuing with social distancing rules, the show will be produced remotely, shot using an iPhone and without a studio audience. Conan will also be doing interviews via video chat…
I am going back on the air Monday, March 30th. All my staff will work from home, I will shoot at home using an iPhone, and my guests will Skype. This will not be pretty, but feel free to laugh at our attempt. Stay safe.

O’Brien has been sharing videos online while his show is in hiatus. But clearly, like many of us, he wants to get back to his job!
Other late night hosts have been trying to entertain via social media while they too are at home in isolation.
