Conan O’Brien ends his nightly talk show after 28 years, 2 networks, and 4 shows
November 17th, 2020 under Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: 1 ]


Back in 1993, some guy named Conan O’Brien took over Late Night from David Letterman. No one knew who this red-headed man was, but they would. After a few years, he earned the respect of NBC, and they offered him The Tonight Show after Jay Leno retired.

That day finally came in 2009, but Leno was not ready to give up his show. Therefore, NBC gave Leno an hour at 10p every weeknight. To say that idea failed would be an understatement. When it got canceled, Leno got his show back, and Conan was fired.

A year later, TBS offered him a late night show, and he was able to say and do things he could not do on NBC. He also got to take his show around the world with Conan Without Borders.

After 10 years on TBS and seeing his talk show go from an hour to 30 minutes, he announced that he is will be retiring from the nightly grind in June. When he concludes his run on TBS, he will start doing a weekly variety show on HBO Max.

“In 1993 Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform.’ I’m thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription,” says O’Brien.

Along with the weekly show, he will continue to take his show around the world. That is when it is safe to do so.

This news is extremely distressing to me. Conan is by far the best interviewer in late night. He also does the funniest comedy bits. His absence will be missed because he is heads and shoulders above the other late night hosts. I am not saying that because he is the tallest.

When he says goodbye in June, Jimmy Kimmel will become the longest-running host. He started in 2003. When it comes to who will be the best of the rest, that goes to Seth Meyers. The other four can’t hold a candle to the fourth Late Night host.

Conan might not be on our televisions nightly anymore, but he will not be forgotten. I will rewatch his show from the beginning. Then maybe I can finally see the episode my dad was on. Long story short, he traveled on a bus from Manhattan home to The Bronx with tapioca in several different parts of his body.

Now that Conan has extra time on his hands, maybe he can finally do a sitcom with Jordan Schlansky.

Thank you, Conan, for teaching me how great late night can be.

The logical reason why Conan O’Brien had a Christmas show yesterday
September 25th, 2020 under Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: none ]


We are exactly three months away from Christmas Day, yet Conan O’Brien decided to celebrate it yesterday on his TBS talk show. Why now? Because he doesn’t think we will make it to December 25th.

Any other year, I would disagree with him. But this year, I think he might be right. So this weekend, I am going to celebrate Yom ChristGivingwWeenAh. Who is with me? Virtually, of course. Since all of those holidays have already been canceled for 2020, so it is the only way we can do it.

Now, I am depressed. The only thing that will cheer me up is listening to the Los Angeles Masked Children’s Choir.

What has Alec Baldwin praying on his knees every day?
September 18th, 2020 under Alec Baldwin, Conan O'Brien. [ Comments: none ]


Alec Baldwin was on Conan yesterday, and of course, they talked about him playing Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. The good news is that he will be back under the atrocious wig. The bad is that he will only be able to do it when he is not filming Dr. Death for Peacock.

That 8-episode series will film over four months, and the new dad is hoping that he won’t have to be back on SNL when it is done. So much so, he is praying for it on his knees every day. He is not the only one. Not by a long shot.

I understand why he is praying for that, but I would think he would be praying for his sperm to stop working. Otherwise he will have baby #6 before he knows it.

Conan O’Brien gives Jordan Schlansky a nude statue of himself`

I think Conan O’Brien keeps Jordan Schlansky around to torture him. In his latest successful attempt, Conan brought in the Property Brothers to renovate the Associate Producer’s messy office.

It was a renovation that might even be too difficult for Drew and Jonathan Scott. The space was not an issue; Jordan is the issue. They decided to give him an Italian motif for the room. He kept turning down all of their ideas until they mentioned a marble statue. Conan agreed to pose for one in the style of David, and it is a work of art. The TBS late night host says that he wishes it was actual size. I guess height doesn’t play into size.

Anyways, how did the office come out? It left Conan in happy tears! It was a dream come true for him. However, it is a short nightmare for Jordan.

Lowe’s didn’t want to work with Rob Lowe
August 12th, 2020 under Conan O'Brien, Rob Lowe. [ Comments: none ]


You know, the meme, “How many Lowe’s would Rob Lowe rob if Rob Lowe could rob Lowe’s?” Well, when the actor saw it blow up online, he had his people call Lowe’s and see if they wanted to collaborate with him. The actor told Conan O’Brien, on his TBS show yesterday, that the home improvement store said, “We don’t really see the connection.”

I think they have been sniffing too much of their turpentine if they don’t see that connection. I can even see the commercial now. Lowe going around Lowe’s stealing things, and the slogan could be, “Our prices are so Lowe, you will feel like you are ROBbing us.” Oh well. Their loss.
