“A year you stood here and promised us all, we will stand up to Trump, Cut to a year later…..’and the Nobel Peace Prize goes to…'” Conan said to CNN’s Anderson Cooper today at the Turner Upfront Presentations. “What are you guys doing?”
Today Madison Square Garden filled with marketers, news reporters, and celebrities from around the Turner Network platforms for the Turner Upfronts, bringing together shows from all of Turner Platforms, including CNN, TBS, TNT, Adult Swim, truTV and Cartoon Network.
First to take the stage were Anderson Cooper, Conan O’Brien and Shaquille O’Neal, sitting talk show style, joking about why they were out there, together. There was a tender moment between Shaq and Conan, a quick shot at how Anderson Cooper looks like the best dressed white walker on Game of Thrones (courtesy of Conan), and then Anderson Cooper asked Conan, “What does total viewing consumption meant to you”
Conan responded, “Why are we here!? It’s my question every year. A year ago, you stood here and promised us all, we will stand up to Trump. Cut to a year later “and the Nobel Peace prize goes to…” What are you guys doing? he’s like King Kong to your little biplanes. ” Conan then mimicked the big ape swatting away planes, “Wap! Wap! Wap!” and added, “Get to work. There’s shit to do and you’re like ‘hmmmmmmm what does viewing mean to you?’
