The Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar was on Conan and he taught O’Brien some Bollywood dance moves. Words cannot describe how amazing that was to see. Although amazing would not be one of the words I would use to describe his dancing. Granted if you asked me if I liked it, I would answer with a head bobble.
Ever since Liv Tyler brought up the fact that her co-star, Justin Theroux’s, bulge is distracting, I have wanted someone to ask him about it. He did Jimmy Kimmel Live and Chelsea Lately, and neither one of them had the cojones to do it.
Yesterday, he was on Conan O’Brien and the TBS host actually asked what those Leftovers (since it sways to left) in his sweatpants are because the girls in his office, like us, want to know what was up down there. Jennifer Aniston’s fiancé’ was extremely embarrassed and didn’t know how to answer it. So he didn’t really tell us. But what he did tell us is that the first jog he did on the HBO was with one pair of underwear, and the second one he did with two pairs. So you can guess from that what he is saying.
Theroux totally won me over with his humbleness as he answered, but didn’t answer the question Enquiring minds wanted to know.

Before Justin Theroux was a Sheriff on The Leftovers, he was a DJ in Zoolander. What can you say about the 29 year old in that 2001 movie?
BTW I know that it is German, but since he doesn’t say anything I figured it was OK. Ja?
Allison Janney was on Conan‘s TBS show yesterday and he asked her about making out with her Mom co-star, Anna Faris.
Then the Emmy winner told Conan O’Brien about the time she met Cloris Leachman. She said she got so nervous during their meeting that she was left speechless; so she went in for a kiss instead. Cloris being Cloris, kissed her back and they had an impromptu make our session right then and there.
It didn’t stop with just Phylis for her, she also had a moment with Lou Grant. Ed Asner is going to guest star on the CBS comedy and when the two met, he licked her arm from her hand to her shoulder.
If I were Chuck Lorre, I would hurry up and book Valerie Harper, Mary Tyler Moore, Georgia Engel Betty White and Gavin MacLeod on the show ASAP. You know, so that this way she has a story about everyone from the ’70s sitcom.
TBS has had a lot of success with King of the Nerds, so it looks like they are really getting into the reality show business. Yesterday, on Conan the late night talk show ran a promo for the network’s upcoming show 16 & Pregnant & a Dog, and I think it will be a huge a hit. Talk about throwing a girl a bone!
Conan O’Brien challenges the viewers of his TBS show to let him know when and if he makes a mistake, but he never does.
Recently Conan did a segment on his show about Buzzfeed running out of lists, and he made up a fake list of the “12 Egyptian Mummies That are Still DTF”. In the bit they showed a photo of a mummy in a museum and said it was King Tut. Well Teddy, sent in a video from the pyramids telling him, it could not have been Tutankhamun because the Pharaoh has only left his tomb twice and he’s only been a few meters from his forever home when that happened. So he could not have been encased at a museum as the show said.
Conan replied with his own video, and it proves Teddy wrong. King Tut gets out all the time. In fact, he photobombed Teddy’s video. That’s right. Just because he’s been dead for almost 2,400 years that doesn’t mean he still can’t get around.
So watch the latest Fan Correction video and tell me who made the mistake, Teddy or Conan?
Josh Groban was on Conan O’Brien’s show yesterday and the TBS late night host wanted some advice about singing. You see, he is going to be singing the Monorail Song, from a The Simpsons episode he worked on, at the Hollywood Bowl, and he’s never performed at a place like that before. Who better to help him out than the Grammy winning singer? What was the host of Rising Star’s advice for him? The tenor told him he needs to sing from the balls. Who knew men had a voice down there? I thought only their brains were located there.
I digress. After the lesson was over, Conan told him should come out to see that performance. Groban said he would be there, “trying to run his hand up his pant leg, no doubt.” The red responded with, “Only, I will not try to stop you.” Would you?
What Groban was referencing is from an earlier part of the interview. To hear that story, then click here!
For the last few weeks lots of celebrities like Matt Lauer, Kathie Lee Gifford, Chris O’Donnell, Martha Stewart, Justin Timberlake and so many more have taken part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Earlier this week, Larry King did it and he challenged Conan O’Brien to do the same. Yesterday, on his TBS late night show he accepted the challenge. Granted he only did it because he thought he was getting the money to do it, not that he had to do it and pay the money. Sadly, for him, and happily for us, he didn’t know that until after he did it. He he he!
I think this is by far the best version I’ve seen of the challenge; so if anyone can top this, go ahead. If you can’t, then just give the money to the ALS Association.
ALS is a horrible horrible disease. My uncle had it and before it fully kicked in, he told me he wanted to die. A man, who would walk around Miami Beach, found himself to be a prisoner in his own body. His kids having to bathe him and taking care of his motionless body, until his time finally came. I hope we can up with a cure for this debilitating disease in my lifetime, so that no one else has to suffer through it ever again.
So if these Ice Bucket Challenges are helping to do that, then I say they are a good thing and let the ice come raining down. You hear that the three people Conan challenged, Former-President Jimmy Carter, soccer legend Pele and that kid who sees dead people Haley Joel Osment.
Martin Lawrence was on Conan O’Brien’s show yesterday and the TBS late night host asked him what is going on with Bad Boys 3. The star of Partners said that it is a go. He spoke with the franchise’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, the day beforehand and he said they were working on a script. As soon Conan heard that, he said he wanted a part in the movie. Lawrence told him he’d be great as a “crocked cop on crack”, and he is so right. The red head did his impression of how he’d play the part and he would so win the Oscar, I mean Razzie for it.
How excited are you for Bad Boys 3?
Conan O’Brien tapes his TBS late night show around the same time the world found out that Robin Williams passed away.
When he was told the sad news, he decided to remember the legend at that moment instead of holding off until the next show. So his reaction was raw, sincere and just like ours when we heard the news, and not something his publicist wrote for him.
Andy Richter also remembered Williams fondly. Will Arnett, whose show The Millers aired before The Crazy Ones most last season, summarized the late great actor perfectly.
I am grateful that Conan O’Brien is still on late night television because he is the only who pays tribute to the great comedians when they pass away. He not only talked about Sid Caesar’s death when it happened, he also brought on Mel Brooks to talk about the man he admired. With Larry King no longer on the air, Conan is filling the void for us to have an outlet to hear celebrities remember the celebrities we love in a real no BS type of way.
Thank you Conan for being that outlet.
I still can’t believe I woke up to a world without Robin Williams in it.
UPDATE: Conan O’Brien had more time to prepare a tribute to Robin Williams and what an honor he gave his friend.
