Conan O'Brien offers preview of 'Conan' with 'Show Zero'

By Jen Chaney

We're now less than a week away from the premiere of "Conan," the new TBS talk show from Conan O'Brien that will easily be the most scrutinized piece of television ever to air on TBS. Well, besides that very special episode of "My Boys."

As a way to give us all a sneak peek, last night O'Brien released "Show Zero" -- a four-minute-and-fifty-second dry run of his soon-to-be nightly comedy/gab fest -- on the Internet.

What do you get in that exceedingly fast-paced clip? Let's see ... amazing video of a conference room, Conan band leader Jimmy Vivino playing a piccolo, a lame Facebook joke, Jim Parsons saying "It's nice to be here," several Diet Coke promotions, the band Steel Train playing a single chord and a dancing Taco. You know what? Maybe you should just watch yourself.

Why did they need Diet Coke to sponsor something that probably cost less to produce than a six-pack of Diet Coke?
