Well, now we know what Ian Somerhalder sees in Nina Dobrev.

The Vampire Diaries star appeared on Conan last night and fulfilled her vow to practice a bit of Yoga for the host and his audience. But she required O'Brien's assistance.

So Conan leaped over his desk, Dobrev removed her shoes and jacket, fellow guest Joel McHale uttered "this is awesome" and the actress proceeded to perform a pose dubbed "The Scorpion," using O'Brien as her "wall." Or O'Brien's crotch, to be more specific.

Watch the fun (sexy!) clip below, which is followed by a hilarious reaction from the comedian. Best job ever? It's at least in the top five.

Rejoice, members of Team Conan.

TBS has extended its deal with Conan O'Brien by two years, the network announced today, with its Head of Programming, Michael Wright, saying in a press release:

“We are proud to be in business with Conan O'Brien for the long run. Night after night, Conan and his team have put together terrific shows that draw a young and fiercely loyal audience. As if that weren't enough, they have also built a dynamic online presence that keeps fans engaged like no other show in late night.”

Conan has enjoyed three straight months of audience growth. It's averaging 1.1 million viewers per night in 2012.

“I am excited to continue my run with TBS because they have been fantastic partners," Conan O'Brien said. "This means I’ll be taping episodes of Conan well into the Ron Paul presidency.”

Comedian Louis C.K. is never at a loss for words, and that includes regarding Twitter ... on which he only has an account so he can tell people how to give him money.

That's a direct quote from his recent sit-down on Conan, and it wasn't his last - the Louie star basically said that people squandering their lives thanks to social media.

Between Tweeting and taking photos of events just to bomb them out using social media outlets, are we directly missing real-world experiences? Louis C.K. says yes.

What would it take for humanity to put its phones down? The end of the world? The second coming of the Messiah. As Conan put it, "Jesus is trending right now!"

Conan O’Brien is resurrecting an old standby tonight.

For the first time since moving to TBS last year, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog will join O’Brien on stage. Conan tweeted the news via this pic from New York, where he's broadcasting this week. He's not looking too pleased about the insults to come:

Triumph and Conan

Technically, O’Brien’s content from NBC is property of that network, but the TBS host has already brought the Masturbating Bear back without repercussions.

It's go time for Triumph tonight. This sock puppet pooch drops comedic bombs on foolz like no other, and we can only pity who his victim(s) might be.

If you haven't seen this crass canine in action, you're in luck. We've dug deep and posted Triumph at the premiere of Star Wars: Episode II below ...

Anne Hathaway came ready to drop bombs on Conan Tuesday.

With paparazzi stalking the set of The Dark Knight Rises, in which Anne will be playing Catwoman, the actress is looking to release some pent-up frustration.

“With all the stuff that’s been going on with Batman, the paparazzi attention has been a little intense," she told Conan O'Brien on his show last night. "So I actually wrote a rap song about it ... it's in the style of Lil Wayne.”

What better influence, right? Watch:

Conan O'Brien earned an honorary degree from Dartmouth over the weekend, a fact he brought up in mocking, self-deprecating fashion while delivering the commencement address at the university on Sunday.

“My first job as your commencement speaker is to illustrate that life is not fair,” he said. “For instance, you have worked tirelessly for four years to earn the diploma you’ll be receiving this weekend. And Dartmouth is giving me the same degree for interviewing the fourth lead in Twilight. Deal with it.”

The comedian also used his own experience - a certain late-night talk show ousting - to send a message to everyone in the audience. He told them:

“Like many people, I thought that achieving that goal would define me as successful. But that is not true. No specific job or career goal defines me, and it should not define you... whether you fear it or not, disappointment will come. The beauty is that through disappointment you can gain clarity, and with clarity comes conviction and true originality.”

Watch the full speech above and then sound off: Just how awesome is Conan O'Brien?!?

Conan O'Brien can't say he wasn't warned about the #beardpocalypse.

Last month, Will Ferrell made a Funny or Die video demanding Conan shave off his ginger beard or Will would do it for him when he came on his show May 2.

The comedian made good on his threat Monday night. As O'Brien sat waiting, Ferrell took a sip of "the blue stuff" used to disinfect combs and went to town!

Ferrell gave O'Brien a stack of 1970s-era "Playboy" magazines, asked him "Are you ready to feel the steel?" and let him have it with his razor, Excalibeard:

Starting with O'Brien's left side, Ferrell began to shave his beard and moustache, but not very well. He admitted he had only shaved dogs prior to this.

"That's horrible!" Conan exclaimed after looking in a mirror at his patchy facial hair. Then he took a hit of the blue stuff, and all was right with the world.

Lady Gaga says Rebecca Black is a genius. We're not sure about that, but she sure is ... something. The poster child for an entirely new genre of music, perhaps.

Black's hit song did not become a hit because it's good. HECK no. It only has tens of millions of views because it's just too perplexing/amazing not to share.

On the day before the now-celebrated weekly holiday that made Black famous, Conan O'Brien one-ups the Internet phenom with a terrific parody of "Friday."

It's called ... wait for it ... "Thursday." Watch after the jump:

Justin Bieber continued his media blitz last night, promoting "Never Say Never" on Conan and Chelsea Lately.

During the former stop, Bieber touched on a number of subjects, ranging from his hair to his favorite candy to his impression of Barack Obama. Yes, Justin Bieber did an impression of President Obama. How can you not watch this clip?!?

Over on E!, meanwhile, Bieber talked to Handler about his Grammy loss to Esperanza Spalding ("I’m not gonna lie. People are expecting me to say something else, but I’m disappointed.") and Lady Gaga's unusual event entrance (“People say it’s artistic and stuff, and I’m, like, ‘You’re an egg.’”).

Watch below.

After months of anticipations, Conan O'Brien brought his unique hair and comedic style to TBS last night. Among the highlights on the debut of Conan:

  • Monologue jokes that included shots at NBC - "I'm going to be honest: It's not easy doing a late-night show on a channel without a lot of money and that viewers have trouble finding. So that's why I left NBC." - and even his new employer:

"This is an exciting night. I'm glad to be on cable - truth is, I've dreamed of being a talk show host on basic cable ever since I was 46... And things are going well already. I'm happy to report that we're already number-one in TBS's key demographic: people who can't afford HBO."

Triumph and Conan
  • A new set that featured a full moon and an ocean view, the former of which Conan could move around with a remote control.
  • Seth Rogen as a guest, talking about proposing to a topless Lauren Miller and joking that he placed the ring on her nipple.
  • Lea Michele as another guest, saying of her scandalous GQ pictorial: "We were just having fun."

Did you watch the premiere of Conan? What did you think?
