Tom Hanks was a frequent?guest on Conan O'Brien's late night shows on NBC and also appeared on Conan's final Tonight Show,. Tonight, he experienced some second-hand Splash?experience on Conan's new TBS show. (Recall that mermaid he starred in?) Here are the opening jokes from Conan's monologue, both about his new network. "That’s right?-- the whitest man in show business is back -- on the second blackest channel on TV.... You know what’s great? Now that we’re on the air, TBS can finally stop running promos for our show. Unfortunately, that leaves an 18-hour hole in their schedule."
