    Same here. But it keeps reminding me of the writer's strike from a couple years back when he first grew one.

    I haven't watched any of my Conan recordings from this week, because they don't have guest info so I have no idea if I'll be interested (I don't generally like Conan's monologue). But if he had Barkley and Dr. Drew on last night, I'll definitely check that out. Barkley is always funny as a talk show guest, and Dr. Drew is great.

    Guess you didn't stay tuned all the way to Cake, then.

    Incidentally, I freeze-framed on the letter taking away Deon Cole's parking privileges, and it said he'd gotten three warning citations already. So I can't feel too sorry for him.

    Conan's video blog last night was hilarious! And I also loved Deon coming back to his car because he forgot his "medicine". :up:

    I am a huge fan of Cake but I wasnt really feeling the new song. Maybe it was the frontman trying to get the crowd into it and they just weren't singing along. A bit embarassing...

    Also, the bits with "Ted Turner" need to stop.

    Yes indeed. It's horrible. Even Conan doesn't seem to like it--something about his persona changes and becomes uncomfortable and awkward. Maybe it's part of the bit, but I don't think so.

    Overall, loving the new show though. Haven't missed an episode yet.

    I think that was in his contract. Ted Turner needs to be on the show once a week...in any form.

    I stopped watching after the first week, then got caught up and cant believe I missed it. He's funnier than he's ever been.

    I think they need to skip the second interview segment with the first guest (unless it's going really great, which is rare since Conan sucks at interviewing) and put comedy sketches there, like they did for a long time in the "Late Night" show.

    The comedy bit immediately after the monologue is essentially the replacement for that "middle bit" (as we called it back in my college dorm in 1993-94).

    The show is formatted differently than "Late Night" was for most of its run -- "Conan" has six segments (as did "The Tonight Show with Conan" and the last couple years of "Late Night"), but "Late Night" originally had seven.
