    Default So anyone watch Conan's debut last night?

    Thoughts? I enjoyed it, though at times I kept thinking it was still Late Night, which is a good thing. I know he'll have to make some changes to his comedy (while it was one of my all time fave bits, I doubt I'll ever see the really offensive 1940s singing ghost again) but at least he's not totally reforming his style.

    My main concern is that the re-inclusion Andy Richter doesn't destroy all the banter Conan had with Max. That was really some of the best stuff from his old show, IMO.

    I know It'll never be the old show (miss you already, Joel! :sad but I'm definitely going it the due chance it deserves (unlike Jimmy Fallon ).

    Conan's a cool cat. My BF said he liked him more than Leno when he watched it.

    I really enjoyed the show last night. The open with him running across the country and the Universal tram skit were both gold. I really missed Andy on Late Night after he left, so I'm glad he's back although it seems he won't have the same role on The Tonight Show. I don't suppose we'll get the Masturbating Bear or some of Triumph's raunchier bits, but a watered down Conan is still light-years ahead of Leno. The only downside to this is that now I have to choose between Letterman and Conan. I think I might go all Solomon and cut the baby in half.

    It was pretty good, and I think it will be up on hulu, right? A bit much Will Ferrell movie-plugging in the second half, but it was overall entertaining.

    I am still slightly devastated that he isn't doing Late Night I miss the low budget antics and cool/b lister guests. But any Coney is good Coney as far as I'm concerned. *circle circle circle* Looking forward to when he interviews some of the guests who have not appeared on his show before.

    He's looking very polished too. Is it me or does his hair look a little lighter?

    I just finsihed watching it (yes, he is on Hulu - my DVR did not save my preferences and forgot to record it - if you used to record him on a DVR, you may need to re-add him as "the tonight show" instead of late night with Conan).

    I was disapointed to not hear Joel as the announcer, but I can see where he would not fit in as well with the new time slot (and its probably a pretty safe bet that Artie Kendal (sp?) will either not return or will be watered down), and even though Andy Richter has never impressed me, I don't have anythign against him either. It was nice to see Max and the band return, and I already researched at the end of his last season to find out that my favorite personality on the show (Pierre Bernard) made the move with him. Eventually I'll probably go back to just watching him a couple times a month, but after him being off the air for several months, its nice to have him back again.
