Every now and again an employer has to review his employees, and Conan O’Brien thought it was about time he reviewed the people who answer to him. Although, it doesn’t seem that a lot of them really answer to him, and can you blame them? The one answer they all agreed upon, is which co-worker they think should be fired. Who do you think they all said? Jordan Schlansky, of course. I never would have agreed with them until I started following him on Twitter. It actually hurts to read his Tweets. So if reading 180 characters of his thoughts is painful, imagine how hard it must be to work with him?
But this isn’t about Schlansky, it’s about Conan. And I want his dummy! That was my biggest takeaway from this bit. That and he better give his show’s publicist a glowing review or we will have a problem.
Finally, Conan O’Brien is now the senior member late night host. Here’s to hoping he surpasses Letterman’s 33 year record.
The Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann wrote a book about his time drumming for the band and yesterday he told some trippy stories from it to Conan O’Brien yesterday.
Did you know the traveling band’s name was originally the Warlocks. Then one day when Jerry Garcia was reading through a dictionary, he saw two words that eventually became the band’s name. A name the other members all hated. A name we have all grown to know and love.
The drummer also shared a story that had Conan hallucinating that something like that would happen to him. Back in 1969, they were guests on Playboy After Dark and someone (not them) laced the coffee with LSD. Hugh Hefner and the crew were taking an acid trip, making the show really interesting.
Not only did he talk about that, he also explained why The Dead isn’t in the Woodstock movie. Kreutzmann also shared what it was to like to march to a different beat when they played the Monterey Pop Festival back in 1967 between The Who and Jimi Hendrix.
With all of those stories he was telling, it is almost like how did the band become as iconic as they did. But they are more than a few stories, they are the band that defined a generation.
Tonight at 11:35p on CBS, David Letterman is saying goodbye to late night after 33 years, a third of a century. Not only has he influenced many people, he has been a big part of all of the remaining talk show hosts’ lives. Jimmy Kimmel was obsessed with him since he was a teenager. Conan O’Brien would still not be on the air had Letterman not come on to Late Night to save it. Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon were guests on his show when they were starting out. Finally, Seth Meyers wouldn’t have a show if Jay Leno didn’t screw Letterman out of The Tonight Show.
So in the last few days, all of the above took time out of their shows to rightfully salute their hero. So watch them pay tribute to the man who they all have to thank for their jobs. Without him Kimmel would still be doing radio, Conan would be writing for The Simpsons, Fallon would be doing unwatchable movies, Ellen would have another sitcom and Meyers would still be on Saturday Night Live. Come to think of it… Joking, they are all better when they are!
Martial Artist and Stuntman Steven Ho was on Conan O’Brien’s show yesterday and he had a few more defense lessons for the TBS late night host. One of those lessons took place in the bedroom with a hot girl and Conan had no problem with that. In fact, when the henchman came after him, he handled it like the man he is. Which I didn’t know that he was until this scenario, but it is good to know. Although, the hot girl took out the last guy, so not sure how manly that part was. But then again, he redeemed himself when he carried her away like she was his bride on their wedding day. So equals out, no?
While that was just one hilarious clip from yesterday’s class, you can also see Conan get a purple nurple, try to kiss his teacher and get put in a car trunk. Not bad a night for the late night show. Oh wait, it was, but it was great for us!
I think that Steven Ho needs to be on Conan more often. He’s my favorite guest on the show. But then again it’s because I am a Sadist and he always hurts Conan. Is that wrong?
David Letterman is retiring in just a matter of hours, and late night will never be same. So much so, it is going to the dogs. Canine, I mean, Conan O’Brien has some new cable competition and it’s Scooter to the rescue like the rescue dog he is. Scooter is heads and tails above all of those other hosts. Well, at least he’s the only one with tail, so he has a heads up.
I don’t know about you, but he is so arfdorable he has me sitting and begging for more. My cat and I give him two paws up.
Conan O’Brien is obsessed with Nina Dobrev’s Yoga moves for obvious reasons. If you don’t know, basically she used him as a wall once to show off her headstand.
Yesterday, she was on his TBS show to talk about The Vampire Diaries before she splits from The CW drama and he asked her if she wanted to do a split with him. She agreed and off they went. The Degrassi beauty was wearing a loose sun dress and when she split her legs wide open, you could tell how perfect her gams are. I want to know what exercises she does to get them so shapely and muscular like that. No matter what I do, they are just shapely and not in a good way.
Jean-Claude Van Damme was on Conan tonight and the TBS late night show host admitted that he loves the action star’s dance moves in Kickboxer. Then Conan O’Brien asked if he can still move like that. Yes, he can and he showed us that he can. I don’t know why, but there is something so sexy seeing him groove like that. Don’t you find it hot?
Hopefully, we will get more of that in Kickboxer 2. I will be there on day one to see it to find out.
Chris Hardwick and Conan O’Brien were seen in an awkward prom pose together on the red head’s TBS talk show and I have to wonder if they have something to tell us?

Back when Matthew Perry was on the Friendship show, as he calls it; he did a photoshoot that was so devastating that to this day he hates to do them. What happened?
He told Conan O’Brien tonight that the cast of Friends and ER did a photoshoot with some swimsuit models on a Saturday morning and Chandler’s bing went bing. The actor got home from it around 1p in the afternoon and needed to get his bing down. Since he was single at the time, all he could do was put on a p0rn DVD (that was before that was what the internet was for) and a half hour later he was done. Sounds like a good lover, no?
Wait! When he was done, he was also done with the movie because now it disgusted him. He compared it to those hot towels you get an on airplane that are like hot for two seconds and then they are just like wet noodles. All he wanted to do was shut off the movie and go to sleep, but the remote and the TV were not talking to each other. Since he tired himself out, he didn’t want to get up and shut it odf. Not sounding that good in the sack any more, right?
Anyways, back to his story and the embarrassing part. Since he wanted to go sleep, he decided that he would just mute the TV. He lowered the volume down to zero, but for some reason he could still hear it. Why? As he explained, “The night before, I’d gone out on my backyard with a glass of wine and listening to music. Then I realized for the last hour, I’ve been blasting a p0rn0 out of my outdoor speakers.” How did he handle it? He moved shortly after the incident. What else can you do? If you are Matthew Perry, then not only do you move but you tell the story on late night TV 20 years later for the whole wide world to hear.
If the writers of The Odd Couple don’t do something with this next season (because you know CBS is going to pick up the show), then they all need new jobs!
What better way to celebrate 4/20 than with the debut of Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard’s new duet about marijuana called It’s All Going to Pot! It should be today’s anthem.
Their album Django and Jimmie will be out on June 2nd, but you can pre-order it now. If you order it today, then you will probably forget you did because you are celebrating correctly. So that means in June, you will get a nice surprise and wonder who your secret admirer is. Don’t tell yourself, but it is you!
