Listen to “Showbiz – Nov 18, 2020” on Spreaker.

 

Did you know that Conan O’Brian is currently the longest serving host of a late-night talk show? Back in 1993, Conan took over David Letterman’s time slot on NBC when Dave made the jump to CBS. Then in 2009, Conan hosted the “Tonight Show” for six months until Jay Leno took it back. The next year, Conan moved over to TBS, where he’s remained ever since. But that’s all about to change. He announced yesterday that “Conan” will wrap up its 10-season run on TBS in June so he’s free to host a new, weekly variety series on HBO Max. Conan said, “In 1993 Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform. I’m thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription.” In the meantime, catch Conan Monday through Thursday nights at 10pm Central on TBS.

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is now on track to become the third richest person in the world, with a net worth of roughly $117.5B. Elon’s personal wealth grew by $15B Monday after Tesla earned a spot in the S&P 500 index. If it becomes official, Elon will overtake Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for #3 worldwide. Zuckerberg is now worth $106B. Top dog is still Jeff Bezos with $184B, follows by Bill Gates with $129B. By the way, this past Sunday, Elon’s SpaceX loaded up four NASA astronauts into a rocket ship and blasted off into space, docking with the International Space Station. They’ll hang out up there until the spring.

Anybody wondering how Joe Exotic is holding up? He’s still sitting in a Fort Worth prison cell, serving that 22 year sentence for trying to hire someone to murder Carol Baskin. Back in September, his team sent a 257-page letter to the White House arguing why Joe should be set free. We don’t know if that letter actually made it to the president’s desk or what, but Joe’s team claims they’ve gotten several phone calls from Washington this week, and they’re feeling pretty confident that a pardon is coming. In fact, Joe’s team has an agreement with a limo company out of Dallas. There’s a Dodge Ram pickup stretch limo on standby 24/7 that’s ready to go get him the minute Joe gets his pardon.

Nobody wants Meghan Trainer to hurry up and have that baby more than her husband, Daryl Sabara. Meghan has revealed what we really didn’t need to know — she can’t bring herself to do laundry while she’s pregnant. And poor Daryl has 3 more months to go! In a new interview, Meghan said, “Maybe this is weird, but mentally I can’t while our son is in between us. All my pregnancy apps say it feels really good. But all I can think about is that there’s a little boy in my belly.”

And the winner of this year’s Sexiest Man Alive as chosen by People magazine and revealed on late last night by Jimmy Kimmel is…………………….Michael B. Jordan! Michael said the women in his family are “definitely proud of this one.” In fact, he said that when his grandmother was alive, she collected the issues! Seven years ago, Michael was actually featured in People’s first annual “Ones to Watch” after his performance in that year’s “Fruitvale Station.” If you missed that one, certainly you saw him in “Creed” or “Black Panther.” And when he took his shirt off in “Black Panther,” that sealed it right there for me. Michael is currently single, ladies. But in the next 10 years, in addition to “directing a little more, acting less, producing a lot more,” Michael says he will hopefully have a family by then. He said, “I’m going to throw that in the universe!”
