    I was just saying.....I have no lost love for Lovett or Isaacs.
    More self indulgent, is the marionette dance he does at the intro, but I don't care one way or another.

    Ok, I'm dumb. I did not see the final seconds of Tom Hanks appearance coming. LOL

    In the premiere I thought the moon was hanging seperate from the ocean scenery. After this show that backdrop/rear projection scene has endless posibilities.

    I haven't caught the second episode yet, but I thought the first episode was pretty solid. Like any other late night talk show I may watch, I skipped the interviews and most of the musical number.

    Hopefully he has more jokes outside of his whole NBC ordeal, as he seemed to have nothing but that to talk about in the first episode.

    Really? Isn't that like 80% of the show?

    Yup. Late night shows are always about 15 minutes of entertainment for me.

    I forgot about the first show until it was half over and then started recording it but have not watched it yet.

    Is his new show in LA or New York? I assume LA, because I never heard about him going back to New York.

    It's filmed on the WB lot in Burbank. Probably only a couple of miles from where his Tonight Show was filmed.

    The show is rerun at 1am the same night as the first run.

    The daily late-night schedule at TBS runs thusly:

    11pm: Conan
    12mid: Lopez
    1am: Conan
    2am: Lopez

    I thought that the first episode was a little weak & stiff, but the second episode — BOOM! — Conan's squarely back in the saddle!

    This was such a great idea to put on the set.

    The hilarious standards & practices "remote" felt much more in the vein of "Late Night" rather than "The Tonight Show," which makes me excited for this show.

    The backdrop behind Leno when he first took over the Tonight Show had a coastal view very similar to Conan's new backdrop.

    Yeah.. I noticed the same thing. Didn't bug, me, though. But I thought it was, well, an interesting choice. Not sure if they were trying to make a joke or what.

    The online episodes confused me at first. They start titled as "Conan: XXXX Part 1" and start you out with about 15-17 minutes of the show. I kept trying to see if I had navigated to the full episode section incorrectly and finally gave up and went to Hulu. Surprisingly, the show is listed on Hulu, but it takes you to the exact same TBS page I had just left. So I figured I'd sit it out through "Part 1" and see what happens. Sure enough, Part 2 (along with all the remaining parts, up to 5 or 6) loaded just as soon as the one currently playing finished.

    Maybe it was just me, but I was kind of confused by the way they have it set up.

    A few other channels do it the same way with their online content. It confused me the first time I saw it too. :)

    Yeah, bugged was probably the wrong word. It struck me as an odd choice and Leno was the first thing I thought of when I saw it.

    Didn't they mention something about being the first set late night set that can see the ocean? Guess they were wrong (or I completly missed the joke).
