TBS Orders Conan-Produced Jimmy Pardo Pilot

So many Jimmys, so many jokes to be made about pop culture. Following in the footsteps of Fallon and Kimmel, Deadline reports that TBS has ordered a pilot presentation of a weekly unscripted show starring Conan's long-time warm-up comedian Jimmy Pardo. In the show, Pardo allegedly “honors all the news, clips, personalities and oddities of the week" while wearing a tuxedo, sort of a formal wear version of The Soup. Do you think the Jimmy thing is just a coincidence, or what? Does the name trigger some part of the human brain that wants to poke fun at Joe Biden?
