Conan O’Brien walks his dogs with family as he prepares to broadcast shows from home via an iPhone
He’s taking a break from broadcasting his late night TBS show during the coronavirus pandemic.
And Conan O’Brien fit into a family time this weekend and walked his dogs with his family.
But this isn’t a vacation for the self-isolating TV host – instead, he’ll be back on the air soon, via iPhones and Skype.

The host resumed releasing new episodes of Conan on March 30 late in the evening. His staff stays at home, and the show is paved along with O’Brien on an iPhone and guests via Skype.
“This won’t be nice, but don’t hesitate to laugh at our attempt,” O’Brien said on Twitter.
The late night shows have halted production due to the coronavirus pandemic to prevent a live audience and large TV crews from coming together. Some hosts have pumped out web videos.

Jimmy Fallon has produced 10-minute At Hom shows for NBC’s ‘Tonight’. In one episode, he did a video chat with Lin-Manuel Miranda. Jimmy Kimmel and David Spade have given monologues from their home. On Monday, Stephen Colbert delivered a 10-minute monologue from his bathtub in a segment that was added to an episode that was otherwise a rerun of CBS’s The Late Show.
O’Brien, however, is the first to attempt a full broadcast from home.
“The quality of my work will not decrease, because technically it is not possible,” O’Brien quipped in a statement.
In most people, the coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially the elderly and those with pre-existing health problems, it can cause a more serious illness, including pneumonia.
The vast majority of people recover from the virus.
