Conan’s ‘Clueless Gamer’ Could Get Its Own TV Show

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.
