TBS announced it's taking Conan on the road to New York City.

Conan O'Brien will host four shows at the Beacon Theater from Oct 31 to November 3.

The performances will mark O'Brien's first shows in New York since his tour stopped at Radio City Music Hall last year.

O'Brien will also host shows in Chicago in 2012.

The comedian chided his current and former employers during TBS' upfront presentation yesterday.

From the Los Angeles Times:

In his opening bit, O'Brien didn't show his new bosses at Turner Broadcasting much love during the cable channel's presentation of new programming to advertisers.

While it is common for talent to take shots at their network bosses when performing at so-called upfront presentations, O'Brien's routine at times seemed more nasty than loving. Besides the usual jokes about cheaper budgets on cable -- he said Turner put him up in a hotel in the Bronx -- he also told attendees to gear up for clips from their favorite Seinfeld reruns.

Gothamist notes that NBC was once again a victim of O'Brien's wrath. In a reference to the recent personnel changes at the Today show, O'Brien said, "Matt [Lauer] says, 'No, I'm staying. I have a long term deal with NBC.' All I have to say is, welcome to TBS."
