BTWF: Conan O’Brien on Saturday Night Live
September 4th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Conan O'Brien, Saturday Night Live. [ Comments: none ]

Before we watched the handsome Conan O’Brien host his talk show every night, he took a course to learn he is handsome on Saturday Night Live. How handsome was he 23-year-old in that 1989 sketch?


Conan O’Brien travels to Greenland to buy the country for Donald Trump!
September 3rd, 2019 under Conan O'Brien, Donald Trump. [ Comments: none ]

Conan O’Brien has traveled all over the World for his TBS specials Conan Without Borders. Tonight at 10p, he travels 6,000 miles northeast to Greenland. A country that Donald Trump says he wants to buy from Denmark. However, Denmark told him no deal.

Conan flew to the gorgeous island covered mostly in ice to see if they would be willing to be sold to the United States via him as our country’s spokesman. Are the natives willing to sell to the US?

Conan sets his sights on the Nuuk, the capital of Greenland where a third of the country (around 18,000 people) lives. He is being shown the city by Vivi and she does not like the idea of becoming American. She is not alone. After touring the Nuuk Golfklub (Trump will love that), he talks to some of the residents there. None of them like the idea. Although, one guy is happy about the publicity they are getting.

The thing about Conan Without Borders is he shows a side of the locations we do not normally see. For example, Phoebe takes him home with her and serves him a true Greenlandic meal. It includes lamb, seal fat, shark skin, dried seal skin and dried fish. Sounds yummy, no? No. He talks to her family about the sale and the high school student tells him they are learning about it in school. What does her class think of the idea? What do you think? They think it is a big joke.

Now that he is familiar with their foods, it is time for him to be interviewed by KNR, Greenland’s biggest and only television station. Since he is such a big star, they ask him to do the weather. The host decides to read it in Greenlandic. He massacres their language as he reads from the teleprompter. We all would because the words are really long with a lot of vowels.

Now that he is a star, he walks the streets of downtown that has only 2 traffic lights. There, the tall white man with red hair is followed by the sole paparazzo and high school students. Both ask him questions and he gets their opinion of the possible purchase.

Now it is time to convince the premiere and the 24-year-old prime minister to sell their land to him. Will he be able to convince them to become Americans? You have to see.

Whether he won them over or not, he did buy himself a lakefront property. He travels to his piece of the rock and you see the magnitude of their icebergs. Icebergs that are melting faster than expected because of warmer temperatures. The more that keeps happening, the less likely we will living on dry land. In other words, we will be underwater.

Greenland is a country we have heard of, but have rarely seen. It is a magnificent country full of beauty. Granted they are wearing winter coats in August, but it is just gorgeous to look at. You will be in awe of how picturesque it is.

It is not only about the scenery, but it is also about the people who call Greenland home. In tonight’s special we learn about them and what their lives are like up there. What do they do for a living? What do they eat? What do they watch on television? Their history during the wars. We also learn how expensive their iPhones. Yes, they have them, Apple is everywhere. This show is a look at a place we rarely see. Conan Without Borders should be shown in schools because you will never get a realer look at a location than you will with him. Well, you can go to Greenland and get a better idea, but it is really cold there.

When it comes to Greenland selling, I hope they do not do it. They seem like are a nice group of people in a stunning country and they should stay that way. Don’t let America’s bad influence ruin what you are now. Believe me, you will remain happier that way.


Jane Lynch reveals why they curbed the booze on Hollywood Game Night
August 22nd, 2019 under Conan O'Brien, Jane Lynch, Sean Hayes. [ Comments: none ]

Jane Lynch was on Conan yesterday and Andy Richter mentioned how much drinking they did on the NBC show. The game show host said that it used to be that a glass never went empty on HGN.

However, things have changed and now they do not serve as much alcohol as they used to. Why? Simply too many, celebs and contestants got really wasted.

How drunk? She said that one person was so upset that they missed out on a point that they got into a fetal position and tears were flowing down her face. Another one got so drunk, that he could not stand up anymore. The last instance she talked about is someone gave a speech to the audience about how hard it is to find a good nanny.

I guess you can understand why Sean Hayes, who produces the show, put his foot down and stopped encouraging the players from having an unlimited amount of liquor. I mean he does not have kids, what does he know about hiring nannies? I guess it was for those people who found themselves crying like an infant or couldn’t walk. What nanny wants to put up with that.

Of course, I am joking about Hayes being the one. Here is the IMDB page listing who has been on the show. Who do you think are the answers to her blind items? I think Kelly Clarkson or Kristen Bell was the crier and Jason Biggs was the person who has nanny issues. They are just the three names who popped into my head.

Side note: Jane Lynch and Andy Richter have been worked together almost 30 years ago. To see then do their take of The Brady Bunch, then click here.


Conan O’Brien solves the Popeyes vs Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich question?
August 21st, 2019 under Conan O'Brien, Fast Food. [ Comments: none ]

For the last few days, people have been debating who has the better chicken sandwich, Popeyes or Chick-fil-A? Personally, I am a fan of neither, so I cannot answer the question.

While I cannot do it, Conan O’Brien decided to answer it for all of us. He sent someone out to both fast food restaurants, that are within walking distance of the Warner Bros, to pick up the choice menu item. Once they were in his studio, he had a real food connoisseur sample both delicacies. Which one did Dudley The Taste Test Dog prefer? He gobbled them both up in one bite. Thus, the answer is a tie.

Therefore, they are both equally as good (or bad) and we can move on with our lives. That is until someone brings Kentucky Fried Chicken into the mix…


Who is late night’s mystery guest coming up on Thursday?
August 2nd, 2019 under Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert. [ Comments: none ]

Sue Trowbridge, who runs the site Interbridge noticed something strange about the guest booking for the late night shows on August 8th. Since she has been listing which people are going to be on what talk shows since 1994, she would know if something is out of the ordinary.

What did she notice? She saw that Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert all have a “Special Guest TBA.” Who this guest is, we have no idea since they are to be announced.

Here are some of my theories. My first thought is Beyonce is going to release an album on the 9th and she is going to make the announcement on their shows. Or maybe one of the studios is releasing a secret movie next Friday? Could Oprah Winfrey or Michelle Obama be announcing that they are running for President of the United States? What about a bunch of celebrities announcing a telethon to raise money for something? Avengers: Endgame is coming out on home video the 13th, what if a cast member appears on each show with a special announcement.

Here is another interesting question, how will they handle it? Will they each get an exclusive with said guest? They all tape and air at different times. Would they all set a certain time so they could all interview them at the same time in a group interview? Will the guest give all of them a pre-taped statement? Will they each interview the person individually? Since Conan airs first, we will have to wait until T0ursday at 11p to find out.

Who do you think the mystery guest is? It has to be someone HUGE and it is not television show related.
