Oh for heaven's sake - I had a long, thought-out post all set to go, and then a WEB PAGE HAS EXPIRED message came up, so I lost the whole flippin' thing!
:bang: :doh: :witsend: What the...? :dunno:
That's never happened to me before.

Anyway, I'll try to piece it back together, so here goes...

ItsAllRyche, it was Laura who mentioned Barry Manilow's look - just wanted to set the record straight.

I went to a taping of the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, which was a real delight - Ed, Doc, Johnny, wow!

I don't hate Jay, I think he's a talented standup who works hard, and I'm glad he works for free and gives something back.
And I agree NBC's the real bad guy because of the bad situation they created for both Jay and Conan.
But I'm mad at Jay for taking the 11:30 show and subsequently taking back the Tonight show. His show was cancelled, Conan didn't go for moving the Tonight show to 12:05, Jay should have bowed out. Nuff said.

I have thought about Conan's remarks about being cynical, and he's so right, so I should rethink my stand on not watching Jay - that would be cynical, wouldn't it? There's a life lesson for the day. :nod:

I think Conan should go to Fox, lock, stock, and barrel - Fox would be wise to make the offer.

As for a move to HBO or Showtime, sorry Kelly, I've got HBO, so I'd be sad to see him go to Showtime.
It would be interesting to see these two networks enter the Late Night arena with a regularly scheduled show - with no language restrictions, it could be a different ballgame, that's for sure. :shock:
Anyway, I'll be watching for you, Conan. :popcorn:

No, no, she's a fish that's just a little bit
La-dy-ish! Yeah!

That's ok, Ryche. :hug:

We watched Conan's last show today, I'd taped it. Woo....yep, I got teary. He really is a wonderful guy. And what he said about being cynical....I have to try not to be. Cynical is me, big time. But he makes me aspire not to be.
Wherever he ends up, I will watch.
Though I must say, the idea of him and Andy immediately doing The Andy Richter Show with Conan as the sidekick, just to get around NBC's no-compete crap clause would be uber-cool!! :twisted:

And how great was it seeing Conan playing his guitar and having so much fun during Freebird?? :supz: We spotted Billy Gibbons of ZZ Topp and Beck...so I'm sure others were in there as well who we didn't know.
Who was playing Will Ferrell's pregnant woman? She reminded me of the woman who plays Walt's wife on Breaking Bad.... :hrm:

Neil Young was terrific....though it immediately made me wonder if he'd play Pants on the Ground, ala Jimmy Fallon. (I'd love to know what Neil thought of that. It was aces.) His choice of song was perfect.

Anyway! It was a great end to what should have lasted years longer and he was a gentleman. See you soon, Coco!!

With Conan gone for a while, I've been watching a lot of Craig Ferguson.

Very funny clip with Harry and Craig. :roll2:

I've been watching Jimmy Fallon. The Roots are just incredible. Last night they did a terrific "make up a song about an audience member" bit. With 3 pieces of info, they create a 16-32 bar song on the spot in the style Jimmy requests. The songs really were pretty good.

I miss new Conan shows. :cry:

A bit out-of-synch but funny! I wish I knew the song he's talking about....

This was great....serious talk from Craig about not making jabs at alcoholics or other vulnerable people in the news......he gets quite serious at around 5:00 and it's really quite something. I've seen it before but not in a while....

Craig is just the best....he really does speak off the cuff. Here he eulogizes his Father in 2007:

The rerun of Conan only has a minute to go, but this is the information that now comes up - NBC strikes again!

"Wacky comic Conan O'Brien brings his skewed sense of humor to the venerable late night show with his off-the-wall jokes, skits and interviews."

I should add that normally the info would only have the names of Conan's guests, but now that he's gone, it seems that they're describing his work as skewed, and the show is now the venerable late night show. Hmmm. :hrm:
