Conan O'Brien is the host of Conan on TBS. He formerly hosted The Tonight Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien on NBC.


In the seventh episode of the first season, a flashback shows that Tracy was on Conan's show before he became the star of TGS with Tracy Jordan. In that interview, Tracy held a knife in each hand and told Conan he was a "stabbing robot". Tracy then proceeded to attempt to stab Conan. Conan tried to cut to commercial while dodging Tracy. Pete was surprised Conan invited him back.

In season 1 episode 3, Conan is subtly referenced as one of Liz Lemon's ex-boyfriends. Pete calls him "the tall gangly red-head guy, who played guitar all the time".

In S1 E07, Jenna is bumped from her spot on Late Night with Conan O'Brien so Tracy can go on instead. Earlier that day, Tracy had needed a refill of his meds, and was about to go onstage without being on them. Luckily, Kenneth came back just in time with a bottle and they were shoved down Tracy's throat. Tracy went onstage and danced to his opening music a little too long. When he finally sat down, Conan tried to start the interview, only for Tracy to fall asleep.

During an emotional elevator encounter, Conan reveals to the audience that he and Liz had planned to lose their virginities together, and now that the relationship is over, he'll never lose his.
