Conan

Recommended Posts


Wish there was someone to talk to. The Scraps episode was pretty good. Guy carries that guitar ALL the time.

GaryE, I'm the mod and I watch this show occasionally, but it doesn't seem many people are interested in discussing it. Shame.

Since I've been waiting since June 25, I would say you're right. (The show gets about 800,000 viewers. Relatively low, but I thought a FEW might be here.)

I typically have Conan on while I'm on my computer. If he has an awesome guest, like I thought Duane Johnson (The Rock) was, I stop what I'm doing and watch. I ended up recording the Scapisode but haven't watched it yet, but I will. It looked pretty funny from what little I caught.

I tend not to watch when it's airing on TV, but I usually checkout clips on Youtube. I always watch any remotes and Clueless Gamer. Unfortunately, the commercials they require me to watch before each clip have started to get off-putting. The other day they tried to make me watch a 30 second commercial before showing a 1:15 clip. I understand the need for advertising dollars, but that's ridiculous.

Clueless gamer is one of my favourite segments too. I also like his remotes ones. I've also found the segments with is metrosexual producer amusing.

I'm glad this is back from it's break. I've never seen Justin Theroux interviewed before, but I thought it was great. He bounced off of Coco and Andy quite well.

 

In other news, former SNL'er Brooks Wheelan did his stand-up routine and he was awful. It just confirmed why he doesn't belong there.

Re: BW. Thanks for the review. I had been wondering, but didn't stick around that long.

I thought Chris Hardwick was pretty funny and very nerdy. He has a TARDIS door that actually opens in his house! Ok, then. He said some sincerely nice things about his personal friend, Joan Rivers.

 

GaryE, glad you didn't waste any time watching BW's standup. Good call, wish I hadn't seen it. lol

I watch SNL, and you made it sound SO bad, so I went online to see it. Yikes. I'll never doubt you again.

Conan is so over this show.

Did I miss something by not watching last night? Sometimes he really seems over it and other times, he doesn't. I've chalked it up to the guest and if they're interesting and/or he likes them.

I love Conan, but haven't been watching this show--it's on a bit early for me here in Mtn. time zone. I did watch the performances for this week, the George Harrison tribute, and last night's appearance by Dhani Harrison was so far the very best of them.  Thank goodness for teamcoco.com, where you can watch what I assume are excerpts from the show.

When he said Jordan was engaged, I immediately had the same thought. "To which sex?"

Anthony Anderson was quite funny last night. Sounds like his mom is a pill and I seriously hope he brings her the next time he visits Conan.  I'm a fan of Jon Lovitz but what an odd interview that was, guess that was the intention though.

I missed last Wednesday's show but my FB feed is blowing up with comments about Chelsea Handler's remark about Andy floating in the ocean. His response was pretty amusing. Did anyone here see it when it aired?

I never watch Conan (sorry), but when I noticed Dick van Dyke had been on, I went to On Demand to see the episode.  What an amazing actor/person he is at age 89.  I'm so glad Conan hosted him.

Yeah, I still watch Conan. I've always watched the TBS Conan, but I'd ususally just watch for the guests.

 

Now, I watch the monologue and comedy bits, too, which have gotten better in recent years. They're almost as good as the Late Night days.

 

But 2 things annoy the heck out of me:

 

1) The beginning of the show: The crowd is way too enthusiastic. It seems like it takes forever to settle down. And Conan's signature string dancing doesn't help. I always have to fast forward to get to the meat of the monologue.

 

2) Conan cooing at hot women. It's just so cringe-worthy. I don't see other male hosts do this. And I don't see him do it to "ugly" women. I wish he'd stop. He's almost 52. It's time to quit it with that.

For example... here's an example of how ugly (and tasteless) the whole Leno Tonight Show culture was.  Now, years after the whole sequence with Leno going, Conan getting the show, then Conan being ditched in favor of Leno, just to stir the pot in a new book, former Leno writer Jon Macks goes below the belt talking about Conan's... deficiencies... as a late night host (in his opinion, I guess).

I thought Mila Kunis looked great last night. It struck me as odd that when Conan referred to Ashton as her husband, she didn't correct him, or deny it. As far as I know, there hasn't been any official statement about them getting married, just speculation.

I'm super disappointed that Incubus wasn't on tonight, even though they were listed to perform. Wonder what happened. They were the only reason I watched tonight because a little Kevin Hart goes a long way, and he's been in too much (for me) the last couple of years or so, so I had no interest in seeing him.

Au revoir Brian Stack.  Truth be told you are funnier than your boss.  I greatly admired your Phil Hartman-type commitment to go all in on a bit and sell it regardless of merit.

So, what happened to Conan?

 

http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/television/2015/05/conan_o_brien_from_late_night_to_tbs_how_did_coco_fade_from_the_pop_culture.html

 

I remember this thread on the TWOP board being so active during the Conan Tonight Show debacle. But it was deader than dead when TWoP. Now it's pretty much dead here.

 

I still watch  Conan every night, but, yeah, I could understand how people lose interest in him.

 

His studio audience is way too overenthusiastic, though.

I still watch it most every night. I used to watch Jon Stewart but it just got too depressing. I'm sure the closer it gets for Jon to leave, the more I'll watch. But Conan still entertains me. The Clueless Gamer thing he does is pretty hilarious.

I watched Conan the other week on vacation a little, and the only thing that occurs to me is that he seems to be continually dumbing himself down for  his perceived audience.  He's over 50 now, I don't think he needs to work at appealing to teenagers any more.   He's obviously a very smart guy, so if he hates gaming, for instance, why do segments on it?  Maybe if he went with his instincts more often things would improve.

That said, it's also too bad he didn't stay in New York, as others have done, but maybe he should be on the lookout for more oddball guests out west.

Actually, the Clueless Gamer segment is supposed to be "A smart guy who hates video games playing video games."

 

I agree that Conan should start acting his age, especially with younger attractive actresses. It's cringeworthy when he purrs at  somebody nearly 3 decades his junior. (2 decades his junior is okay.) But he really ought to drop that shtick.

This should probably go in the media thread - I don't know  - BUT, Does anyone else remember back in the  Conan "Late Night" days, Andy Richter said that he was a student in the high school where Dennis Hastert (then Speaker of the House) was a wrestling coach?

 

With Hastert being in the news these days - especially now that there may be sexual misconduct dating back to those days - I'm wondering of the subject will be broached by Conan & Andy.
