Max Weinberg may not be returning, but Andy Richter is. TBS has confirmed that Richter will be back on sidekick duty when Conan O'Brien's new show debuts next month.
In fine understated manner, Richter said in a statement "I'm thrilled to be going back to work with Conan, and very excited to start a whole new venture on TBS. However, I am mostly looking forward to getting out of the house again." For his part, O'Brien said simply "This decision was made without my authority. I will get to the bottom of this."
Conan launches November 8th on TBS.
