Conan's 'Clueless Gamer' Could Get Its Own TV Show

Oh, good. TBS may turn Conan O'Brien's "Clueless Gamer" sketch into a whole TV show.

"Clueless Gamer" is a Conan segment in which O'Brien and a grab-bag celebrity mock popular video games like Overwatch and Fallout 4. Recently, Conan and Elijah Wood tried out Final Fantasy 15, which Conan compares to "Middle-Earth Entourage".

The Hollywood Reporter learned yesterday the sketch is being developed into a series. Conan may not actually host Clueless Gamer himself, although he will be the executive producer.

Kevin Reilley, TBS's president, told The Hollywood Reporter that "We've gotten to the point where video game companies are sending us their new product for us to play and make fun of because it's been such a huge success. We're going to go into production on a series of that."

Seems like a win-win: Big games get free publicity and the Conan team can keep up the farce that beautiful, famous people don't "get" video games.

    Calm down buddy it's call humour. It's not for everyone but some do find it enjoyable.

      Who are you replying to?

        I'd imagine the author of the article as the general tone is that they don't like the sketch/show or Conan's style of humour.

    I don't mind it as a segment on his show but I don't think it pulls enough weight to warrant its own show. The content would probably become stale or forced.

      Agreed. It would definitely wear thin if it was any more then the 2-3 mins the sketch usaully goes for.

    This is great news, if true. Clueless Gamer is hilarious. The writer of the article needs to mellow out - if CG isn't a light-hearted love letter of sorts to video games, nothing is. Even if you love games - as we all do here - you should still be able to see that they frequently make prime material for a joke butt here, inane commentary there.
