I hadn't heard anything about when the new season was starting, but while going to IMDB to look something up, saw that it is debuting this Sunday. A quick check of the Tivo schedule shows that they are showing the last season on Friday and Saturday for a primer of the new season.
I just can't wait to see how the airplane crash effects things.
At Mohegan Sun, apparently Conan's show was in the venue later in the evening after a women's basketball game. Very cool time lapse movie of the game, the load-in, the show, & the load-out in this blog entry (teamcoco.com).
