TBS Orders Pete Holmes TV Show

Congratulations are in order for our own Pete Holmes, who will be hosting a new TV show that Deadline is reporting has been picked up for a four week run by TBS.

The new show is being produced by Conan O’Brien’s Conaco production company and will air Mondays through Thursdays in a Fall 2013 run right after Conan as a sort of companion show.

“Pete Holmes is an enormously likable performer with an agile and innovative mind,” Deadline quotes Conan as saying. “I’m really looking forward to his show, and I’ve already had my son program my DVR.” For his part, the article quotes Pete as saying, “The first half of my meeting with Conan was spent making sure this wasn’t all part of a new TBS prank show called You Got Coned! The second half was spent expressing my sincerest enthusiasm and gratitude for this incredible dream come true.”

Awwwww. Anyway, look for it in the Fall. We’ll remind you. Meanwhile, keep listening to Pete’s You Made It Weird, one of the many fine Nerdist podcast network offerings.

    I sincerely hope that Kumail is your first guest and Chelsea Peretti is your Andy Richter.

  2. Eric O says:

    Only 4 weeks??? Why not ‘500 Weeks’!?!

  3. Patrick090 says:

    Pete, I want to say, through YMIW and beyond, your wisdom and humor continue to be a guiding force in my life. And I’m psyched that you finally got your talk-show – you more than deserve it.


  4. Three Toes of Fury says:


    What…are you like THE best!?!

    Wooo Hoo! Congrats fellow weirdo!!!! Some suggestions:

    * Your first guest must be John Glazer…bring him on and just stare at him for 5 m…then pretend to become very offended and have security escort him out..

    * based on your bit is it safe to assume that your talk show will have a non stop influx of magicians!?…woot!

    * use some of the production $$ to film a quick clip of a POV shot of someone sharp shooting in a corn field….you’ll be cutting away to it constantly.

    *lots of chelsea appearances. season finale: you on one knee..proposing to her.

    * more of your batman videos! they are beyond funny.

    * every joke during monologue ends with the tag “is frowned upon in this establishment”.

    Peace .n. New Beginnings

    3ToF, keeping it krispy.

  6. Congrats Pete! For all the Canadian fan’s I’m assuming (or hoping) that CTV will pick this up and play it after Conan (Monday to Thursday at 1am ET/PT).

    YEEAH! DENVER! This is really amazing. I can’t wait to watch it and I’m so excited for Pete. Now he can stop drowning his anxiety in white wine. Right? Is that good or bad if it stops now?

  20. Qualo says:


  21. Pariah says:

    Congrats Pete!
    I have become a real fan after listening to your Pod Cast and I am delighted to see you get this very cool oportunity.
    I would cation against taking any hair care advice from Conan however.

  22. Stephen C says:

    I’m so excited for this! Can’t wait to see it. Will we get to see the pilot episode/s that were filmed too?

  23. Nathan says:

    You finally did it, Peter Pants! Now you can share crispy lasers with the rest of the world!

  24. Jill says:

    I cant wait to watch Pete 4 times a week!

  25. Stephen says:

    Can’t wait to torrent this, not because I’m a complete bastard. I live in the UK and this is the only way that I’m gonna be able to watch it.
    It’s the same with the Nerdist tv show and Comedy Bang Bang.

    On a side note I am a complete bastard, just not because of the torrent thing.

    Well done old Petey pants

  26. Kevin says:

    btw. I do hope that’s a picture of Pete about to sneeze.

    I really, really hope.

  27. Joe Walsh says:
