Conan O'Brien, Noah Wyle party for network's anniversary

TNT shows were the talk of the night at the network’s 25th anniversary party at the BevHilton on July 24.

Some newcomers, however, have a little catching up to do. Rene Gube, who stars in the upcoming sitcom “Ground Floor,” cringed when he admitted that “Falling Skies” was the only TNT program he watched.

“Is that a trick question?” asked Pete Holmes, star of  TBS’ upcoming “The Pete Holmes Show,” on whether or not he watches much TNT. To clarify, he added, laughing, “I’m the most uninformed person ever.”

Stars from Turner’s universe mingled, from Conan O’Brien, Angie Harmon, Sasha Alexander and Eric McCormack, to Noah Wyle, Breckin Meyer, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Jesse Metcalfe.

The party wrapped on the first full day of TCAs, and stars were just as eager as the press for spoilers.

“I’m excited to see if anyone can leak me any information,” said Drew Roy of “Falling Skies.” “I know absolutely nothing about the third season. Not a single thing.”

Meanwhile, Connor Jessup, who also stars in “Falling Skies,” speculated on what would happen if aliens invaded.

“The first thing I would do is find Will Patton,” He said, referring to the actor who plays the gruff Captain Weaver. “Nobody around Will is going down. And that’s Will Patton, not Captain Weaver.”
