The show debuts on Monday, 11/8/10 on TBS and TBS HD.
I watched it....It was meh
Pretty shockingly flat. The filmed intro was quality, but that was about it. Don't know how useful or funny it will be, but I love the remote control Moon.
Hopefully it was just a little rust from being away for so long. I also wonder if he still has the same writers he had in NY and LA. Probably doubtful as they were NBC employees.
I believe he's said on record that every one of his staff members have returned except for Max.
I loved the cold opening. The Gervais thing went on a little too long but for the most part, I guess it went as expected. It's the first episode so I think there was more emphasis on just familiarizing everyone with the show, catching up, etc. than putting on sketches.
Besides, at this point, what you see is what you get. I love Conan but I know he can rely a little too heavily on the same gags, jokes, etc. I'm sure there will be ups and downs. I'll watch this first week out of loyalty and if it doesn't get better, I'll be a periodic watcher.
That being said, I'm happy for him.
I noticed that there wasn't a mid-episode skit yesterday that his past shows usually had.
Hopefully there'll be at least one tonight.
His ratings kicked ass anyway...
I watched the first 20 minutes or so online today. Not bad. I don't watch late night much so I didn't know what to expect. The opening was good, but I was kind of expecting the end to be Lopez on the phone saying, "You want to move the George Lopez Show to midnight????"
George said...."damn, I'm living every latino's dream. I have a job where they want me to go in an hour later"
Only things I don't like are Max not being there and Andy Richter's return as the "sidekick". Other than that, I thought it was great. Maybe we'll get lucky and Time Warner will buy the rights to Walker Texas Ranger.
Max had major surgery and didn't feel up to moving his family to Cali, shame I always liked it small bits and interludes
Thought the premier was ok. Genuinely cracked up several times tonight (night 2).
As for Andy Richter. I actually really thought he was very funny when Conan's show first started all those years ago. They had a great thing going. I thought it was seriously flat on the Tonight Show. It just wasn't the same. I hope things will change now and he'll feel more free to be funny again.
When Tom Hanks was on Conan's Tonight Show, I thought he was a weird guest. Tonight, he was killing it. He had some pretty good zingers.
Soundgarden pretty much kicked ass.
Half drunk, about to watch a downloaded ************** of the first episode, think I might skip to episode #2.
Tom Hanks was pretty good. Liked the part with the whales.
Episode 3 had Jom Hamm and some awkward, little lady who was pretty funny as guests. Don't remember her name, though.
Charlyne Yi. You may remember her as the stoned girlfriend of one of the characters in Knocked Up. She also did a pseudo-documentary with Michael Cera that I've heard was pretty funny.
I'm a Coco fan. I know the first episode wasn't that memorable but hey it's got Seth Rogen and Jack White on it. Nevermind the Glee girl.
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog does his thing to the staff at a rude Chicago hot dog stand (NSFW):
I just watched the episode off of my HD-DVR and that segment was friggin' epic!
Smigel is a genius. He lets the dog say sh*t he could never get away with doing. Google Triumph's interview at the Star Wars convention in NYC. Also great
That was a classic as well!
I'm glad to see that Triumph and a few other characters created during Conan's previous shows are making occasional appearances again on the current show. From what I remember, none of those characters were initially allowed to transfer from NBC to TBS.
If only Conan could also bring back the "In the Year 2000" (which had changed to "In the Year 3000" during the his brief time hosting The Tonight Show) bits.
Couldn't. Stop. Laughing
