Conan O'Brien will break the mold on late-night programming by airing an entire episode rendered in clay animation. The Thursday installment of "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" will re-create an episode that aired in October entirely with clay figures, from the opening monologue to the bumpers that lead in and out of commercials. The program has already been in the works for months, handled by the regular "Conan" production team. "This may be the best show we've ever done ... in clay," O'Brien said in a statement released by NBC. Joining O'Brien in clay form will be the guests from the October episode, including "Jackass" star Johnny Knoxville, Richard Lewis and David Bowie. Also getting animated is Mr. T, who appeared in the recurring "In the Year 2000" sketch featured in the episode.
