Conan O’Brien rocked as he debuted his late night show on TBS last night. The new show is named after “Conan” which as he explained would make him harder to replace. Yuppie!
After being gone from NBC and television for nine months, it was good to see the funny ginger host again. This time on cable TV and believe it or not with his entire crew. That must itself be saying a lot about the ginger boss.
“This is an exciting night. I’m really glad to be on cable… The truth is, ladies and gentleman, I have dreamed of being a talk show host on basic cable ever since I was 46. A lot’s happened in the news since I went off the air, and I was hoping I could cover it all in one joke… But then I realized that’s like trying to keep an Icelandic volcano from wearing Lady Gaga’s meat dress while a trapped Chilean miner cleans up the BP oil spill, comma, Brett Favre’s penis.”
O’Brien’s debut last night attracted 4.16 million viewers beating both Jay Leno on NBC and David Letterman on CBS. Welcome back!
