Conan sets T.O. nights
By BILL BRIOUX, TORONTO SUN

Conan O'Brien is indeed coming to Canada. A tentative deal has been reached to bring NBC's Late Night With Conan O'Brien to Toronto for four days of taping, Feb. 7-10.

The early February sweeps date works best for everybody, says Canada's Walk Of Fame founder Peter Soumalias, the driving force behind the event.

"Everyone from NBC's side -- from Conan, Lorne Michaels, (executive producer) Jeff Ross and everyone at the network level -- has been outstanding," Soumalias said yesterday. "We couldn't ask for more co-operation."

The venue for the event appears to be the historic Elgin Theatre, across Yonge St from the Eaton Centre. Originally a vaudeville house, the 90-year-old facility seats more than 2,000.

On Nov. 6 The Sun was first to report that O'Brien's people were interested in shooting a week's worth of shows in Toronto. Five days later, The Sun spotted O'Brien himself scouting venues with executive producer Ross.

O'Brien has been tentatively booked to return to Toronto for a Dec. 15 press conference.
