Most aren’t exactly rolling out the red carpet for Coco. His new show on TBS has been pimped like a ho on the stroll, but reviews are mostly falling in the ho-hum category. However, ratings are pretty good. In fact they are currently beating Leno with a 2.8 percent of households watching his basic cable debut.
Conan O’Brien premiered his new show, Conan, with guests Seth Rogen and Lea Michele. (Everyone else was busy seasoning their crepe pans.) First a sketch depicting his feud and exit from the Tonight Show reminded us he is still bitter. Perhaps rightfully so, but we get it…NBC/Jay Leno/Tonight Show bigwigs are douchebags. The skit showed Conan looking for work and trying to join the ‘Mad Men’ advertising agency, working at Burger King, as a kids birthday party clowns and finally off TBS.
Conan’s monologue was filled with the same bitter feelings and, while I love Coco, I wished he’d move on. Regardless, I still love him and his ginger pompadour. I do find it amusing that he pointed out the fact that after daylight savings time ended he is still really on at midnight.
O’Brien’s pal, Ricky Gervais, also sent in a well wishing and I was really wishing he would have been a guest.
Seth Rogen announced his engagement on the show and gave details of his proposal. Click HERE for those details. Lea Michele was Coco’s second guest. She discussed ‘Glee‘ and the now “scandalous” GQ photo spread (Click HERE for those photos).
