In an unprecedented move, NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” will broadcast an entire episode in “skelevision.”
The entire episode of “Late Night” will be populated entirely with skeletons. The experimental and groundbreaking episode airs Tuesday, October 31 on NBC.
“This may be the finest hour of television NBC has ever produced…with skeletons,” noted O’Brien.
The show is a complete re-creation of an episode of “Late Night” from May 2006. From the monologue, to the comedy sketches and guests, no living humans will be featured in the show ? just skeletons.
Guests on the episode are Larry King, actor Omar Epps (“House”) and actress and pole-dancing workout instructor Sheila Kelley (complete with demonstration).
In addition, the show features Will Arnett in the show’s signature “In the Year 2000” segment.
This isn’t the first time “Late Night” has creatively tweaked its format in its thirteen-year history. It has broadcast from the Circle Line boat cruise around Manhattan, done an entire show in clay animation, retooled the show as an infomercial, shot a last minute 15-minute show opening during New York’s 2003 Blackout with nothing but reserve power and its most recent and talked about format break ? the hour-long travelogue to Finland.
