If you are fan of Conan O’Brien and the three late night shows he’s host/ed, then you know that he is not a fan of his associate producer Jordan Schlansky. The two frenemies have done many remotes together and the latest one might possibly be there last. That’s because the two of them tried the latest trend The Escape Room. It’s kind of like Saw without all of the blood, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t have the same outcome. Especially if they are trapped in a room for a long period of time and for Conan that could be as little as 5 minutes.
See the swell video, kid, to find out if one or both of them will make it out of their alive. Here’s a clue, probably not!
Are you sick of waiting for the kids to go to sleep before you can watch Game of Thrones? Well George RR Martin came up with a cartoon version of his hit drama that you can watch with your kids and he debuted the trailer via Conan. That’s right, now there is Lil Thrones! So instead of staying up late on Sunday nights for all your blood and t!ts, you can wake up early and watch it on Saturday mornings. It’s not like your kids let you sleep anyways! Life is good again!
Did you buy one too many Peeps this Eater holiday? Well, Conan O’Brien and the staff of his TBS show came up with some practical uses for the sugary marshmallow treat! You can use them for things like evening out your wobbly table or scrubbing that pan with caked on grease or as edible packing peanuts. Those are just a few of the many useful things you can do with them.
Try them out around the house, at work or anywhere else you might need them and tell me what creative way you found to use them. I’ve used them as a loofah sponge in the shower. When the sugar is all off of them, then I eat what is left. Yum!
Now that are super cheap, you can stock up on them until Halloween! That’s when get test out practical uses for candy corn. Seriously, who likes those things? So nasty!
Kristen Stewart was on Conan tonight and the TBS late night host wanted to know if she was channeling Justin Bieber in Jenny Lewis’ music video Just One of the Guys. She told Conan O’Brien, “In his dreams!” Then she quickly tried to backtrack, but the damage was already done. Somewhere the Beebs is crying like a baby baby over her diss.
First Lady Michelle Obama challenged Conan O’Brien to her Gimme Five challenge and he accepted her dare to do 5 whole chin-ups. He made a video of himself doing it because no one would ever believe he did it if they didn’t see it for themselves. Only problem is the cameraman panned down and we got to see how he was able to achieve the goal. He had Kevin Hart lifting him up on his shoulders. Which is really impressive because Hart is smaller than your average man and Conan is taller than one. I am pretty sure the TBS late night host is twice Kevin’s size. So if I were Conan, I would be embarrassed that a man that is half his size is twice as strong as me!
Sorry to ruin the punchline of the joke, but I was blown away by Kevin’s strength.
Long before Keith Urban was judging singers on American Idol, he was a contestant on a talent competition back when was 9. Yesterday on Conan, he told the TBS host about his experience.
His parents told him to go on a show called Pot of Gold and he sang a Country song on it. When he was done, it was time to be judged. Bernard King told the kid, “I desperately encourage you to escape the mediocrity, get out of Country Western and get into some real music.” Then the judge added, “Otherwise, you will end up sounding like Dolly Parton and absolutely useless.”
Imagine if he took that judge’s advice, we probably wouldn’t know he is, he wouldn’t be married to Nicole Kidman and most importantly he wouldn’t be judging American Idol. Would that have been bad thing?
Yesterday, the world was shocked and saddened when Zayn Malik announced that he was quitting One Direction. As soon as people were able to accept and comprehend his departure and the desperate need for a replacement, several men started throwing in their names into the hat. While singers like Weird Al Yankovic just Tweeted about, John Stamos and Conan‘s Andy Richter went even further. Both men made audition tapes.
Watch the videos above of them both singing What Makes You Beautiful and tell me who is a more beautiful choice for the job? Personally, I think Richter is so much sexier with the 1D!
When James Corden got the hosting job of The Late Late Show, many of us were like who he is? As the show’s premiere date got closer, CBS started putting huge billboards of his face all over Los Angeles. In fact, they even put one up on the wall outside the studio where he tapes his show. So you would think that security would know who he was his because his huge face is right in front of theirs. You would be wrong. Corden told Conan O’Brien yesterday that he recently went to lunch one day and forget his pass in the office. When he came back, he tried to get passed security and they wouldn’t let him him without it. He tried to show them the billboard, but that didn’t work. It wasn’t until someone from his staff came down with the pass that he was finally let in.
That says a lot because he tapes in the same building as Dancing with the Stars and American Idol and and security can recognize those hasbeens and not him.
Hopefully, now that the show is on the air they will start to recognize him just like they do Carrie Ann Inaba and Harry Connick Jr.
Kevin Hart was talking about a time he didn’t get the reaction he wanted after a live gig, and Conan O’Brien sympathetically said to him, “Sometimes getting no laugh is much funnier than get a laugh.” Hart responded with, “For you, cause you understand, but you know…” The TBS host was like, “What do you mean for me? What the hell is that?” It was then that Hart realized what he just said, and he started laughing uncontrollably because he explained that is not what he meant.
But was it? Here’s a clip from earlier on Conan, when a joke during his monologue found him swimming in unfunny waters. Although I will admit, I laughed hard at it because Conan makes me laugh the hardest out of all of the late night hosts.
So watch both clips and tell me if Hart was right or not?
One of the most shocking moments on television this season is when Zachary Quinto’s character on The Slap, slaps a kid, who isn’t his own, hard across the face. You can only assume that people will stop him on the street to talk about it and you are right because they do. Then you have to wonder, will they think of him as the good guy Spock from Star Wars or the bad guy Sylar from Heroes. The answer might surprise you.
Yesterday, when Conan O’Brien asked him about it, Quinto had this to say, “The biggest reaction, hands down, that I get is, ‘I would’ve slapped him twice as hard.'” Then he added, “Which I find really really disturbing and amazing.” Other people have told him, “I wish I was there. Like, I would’ve really gotten him. Like, I really would’ve clocked him. That must’ve been great.” All he can do is listen to them and wonder how he can get away from them as fast as possible.
Now, we know how fans reacted to The Slap, Quinto also talked about what made filming that scene easier with Dylan Schombing. Thankfully for Zachary, the kid knew from Star Trek and that brought an ease to filming.
So back to The Slap, what would you say to Zachary Quinto if you saw him in the street about it?
When it comes to the drama, to see what happens next, you will just have to tune into NBC tomorrow at 10p to find out.
