Wasn't sure whether this fit more properly in this forum or in the TV AND HDTV PROGRAMMING forum.

'Late Night': The Infomercial

In what Late Night With Conan O'Brien producer Jeff Ross called "an infomercial parody that is actually an infomercial," the Aug. 12 edition of the comedy talk show will be staged as a late-night advertisement, pitching the DVD releases of Conan O'Brien's 10th anniversary clip show and a collection of appearances featuring Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog, TV Guide reported on its website Monday. "Every cheesy aspect of infomercials will be included in the parody, from Bruce Jenner-like guests to O'Brien dressed in a really loud sweater," the publication said. However, it noted, the toll-free number will be real, and viewers will be urged to buy the DVDs for $19.98 each.
