Comic-Con is Coming to a TV Screen Near You (Here’s Where to Watch)
Conan O'Brien’s Funko Pop! Superman figure for Comic-Con 2016
So you’re not going to Comic-Con? Well, there are still plenty of ways to follow the news (and mayhem) from the annual pop-culture convention in San Diego (July 20-24). Twitter will obviously be a great way for real-time updates, but there is also some TV programming to make it feel like you’re there (minus the sweat, swag and waiting in lines).
For the second year in a row, Conan O'Brien is bringing his late-night show to Comic-Con for four shows (airing 11/10c on TBS) taped at the Spreckels Theater. Here’s the line-up for each night’s guests:
Wednesday, July 20: the cast of Silicon Valley
Thursday, July 21: “Weird Al” Yankovic, Stephen Amell (Arrow), Melissa Benoist (Supergirl), Grant Gustin (The Flash)
Saturday, July 23: the cast of Suicide Squad
Sunday, July 24: the cast and producers of Game of Thrones
And keep an eye out on eBay for this year's line of Funko Pop! Figurines, featuring Conan in a variety of SDCC-centric costumes (including Superman, above).
