TBS announced today October 28,2011 that Conan O’Brien will be officiating a gay wedding on his TV talk show next week.
This will be part of the week long celebration of the one year anniversary of the Conan O’Brien show moving to TBS. Back when Conan was taping his show in New York City a legal wedding between two men wouldn’t have been legal but flash forward to the present and it is.
According to the report from Vulture Conan O’Brien will be marrying his staffer and long time partner one one of the nights. TBS hasn’t given the exact date yet so stay tuned.

Who is going to be tuning in, this will be a history making moment and another late night ratings record.
Broadcasts from New York’s Beacon Theater start Monday Halloween night October 31 at 11/10c on TBS.
