Andy Richter said there was never a doubt in his mind that he’d join Conan O’Brien on the host’s new TBS series.

“I’m doing the TBS Conan show because I went back to work for Conan on ‘The Tonight Show,'” Richter said. “But that story ended unnaturally.”

Richter will now get to see that reunion through, as O’Brien starts prepping his plans for the new show, which bows in November. In the meantime, Richter’s plenty busy: He just taped the pilot to a revival of “Pyramid,” which is in the running for CBS’ vacant daytime slot. And he hosts a TBS “Just for Laughs” special this weekend, featuring the writers from O’Brien’s camp.

Richter talks more about how he’s put the events of January behind him, and why he might have been better equipped than most of the O’Brien staffers when they suddenly lost “The Tonight Show.” Check out his interview here.
