Conan O'Brian s11ep57 Jordan Schlansk

This week on TV had us running, screaming, and gagging for more! Rick and Morty returned for another chaotic adventure through interdimensional space, Pause with Sam Jay tackled children and the village it takes to raise them, and the series premiere of You, Me & My Ex brought real-life love triangles into the same living space.

On the other hand, Conan said goodbye to his late-night show after 28 years, while we said hello to the new contenders for the RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Hall of Fame.
