Mash-Up: Conan Characters on Other TBS Shows (VIDEO)

Countdown to 'Conan': Get ready for Conan O'Brien's TBS talk show debut on Nov. 8

Part of Conan O'Brien's deal with TBS stipulates that the network won't interfere with the show's content. However, there is always loads of fine print in those contracts and we wouldn't be surprised if Conan missed something.

For example, TBS might want him to promote their original series by working them into his sketches. That may sound like a horrible idea at first, but we're sure Conan's staff would develop insane ways to mash up their existing characters with shows like 'Are We There Yet?', 'Meet The Browns,' 'Lopez Tonight' and 'Tyler Perry's House of Payne.'

We picked four of our favorite Conan characters and mashed them up in possible TBS-centric sketches. Right now the finished product is only in our dreams, but the description and corresponding videos should give you a good idea.

The Hollywood vet is currently starring in the number one movie in the country, 'The Expendables,' and TBS has just picked up his freshman sitcom 'Are We There Yet?' for an additional 90 (90!) episodes.

Are We There Yet?
When audiences first met Suzanne Kingston and Nick Persons in the film 'Are We There Yet?' Nick was tasked with taking Suzanne's kids on a road trip to visit her on a business excursion. Now, the movie is a TBS sitcom premiering June 2 at 9PM ET. The show is set six months after Suzanne and Nick got together at the end of the 2005 film. The Kingston-Persons family is united under one roof, but that doesn't mean they're all united.

Terry Crews of 'Everybody Hates Chris' fame takes over the role of Nick Persons from Ice Cube. However, Ice Cube, who also serves as an executive producer, appears as Suzanne's brother, Terrence.

Essence Atkins, a recognizable face from the sitcom world with roles on 'Half & Half' and 'Smart Guy,' portrays Suzanne in the show. The role was originated by Nia Long in the film.

Are We There Yet? coming to TBS, and bringing Terry Crews with it

Terry CrewsTBS started the 100-episode order with the Tyler Perry family of sitcoms. And now they're at it again with a similar offer on the table for a television adaptation of Ice Cube's film Are We There Yet? Even better, they've nabbed Everybody Hates Chris' Terry Crews to play Nick, the role Ice Cube played in the film and its sequel.

Crews was always the funniest character on Everybody Hates Chris, and seeing him as the fish out of water marrying into an instant family should give him plenty of opportunity for laughs. It's nice to see that shows featuring predominantly African American casts are still being developed somewhere since they've left network television completely now with the cancellation of The CW's comedies.
