After Two Shows, Conan Does What He Does Best: Be Conan

 

Greatest album cover of all time.

 

For the first time in a long time, I’ve made it a point to flip over to a late night talk show for two straight nights. There’s something familiar about it though. Oh yeah! The last time I did it was for the same guy.

That’s right, Conan O’Brien is back and I’m all in. I’m not one of those Team Coco people that obsess over him and think he’s the greatest comedic invention since Andy Kaufman, but I’m definitely a fan. Of all the hosts, he’s my favorite, mostly because Jay Leno is such a kiss-ass and David Letterman just seems like such a bitter old guy these days.

The new TBS show is two nights in and it’s been okay so far. There haven’t been many gut-busting bits, perhaps because they are still working out whether or not Conan can use his old NBC characters. He seems to take pleasure in taking shots at NBC and TBS, maybe a bit too much. Well, I don’t mind ripping NBC so much, but he needs to lay off TBS a bit. I’m very aware that I’m watching TBS and, for no good reason, it’s really weird to me. As far as I knew, TBS was the station that shows me eight straight hours of “Family Guy” and have the audacity to further the pathetic, unfunny career of George Lopez. Oh yeah, they used to show the Atlanta Braves.

So far, the two highlights of the new Conan have been the musical guests. It was great fun watching Jack White and Conan rock out and share a mic on the first show. Last night, Soundgarden freaking killed it. Flat out sick. That being said, the show is definitely still getting its feet under itself. I mean, when the musical guests have been the real highlights so far, you’re eventually going to have to step it up and bring more funny to the table.

    I thought Conan’s censorship skit last night was his best yet.

    Hey, man. You working on your Zenyatta screenplay yet?
