The Good: Not that we really had any doubts, but last night Conan O’Brien assured fans and critics alike that the franchise Johnny built and Jay kept running smoothly over the past seventeen years will be in good hands for, oh say, the next seventeen. From the solid opening that had O’Brien pulling a Forrest Gump of his very own by running from New York to Los Angeles, to a highly enjoyable remote that had O’Brian taking one really lucky group of tourists on a Universal Studio tram tour they won’t soon forget, O’Brien was in fine for; Delivering laughs with his trademark mix of self-deprecating, funny and slightly off-beat sense of humor. Plus, his interview with Will “I do the same schtick in every single movie that stopped being funny six movies ago” Ferrell was almost entertaining enough to have us reconsider our self-imposed moratorium on Will Ferrell movies.
The Bad: Not enough Andy Richter. Sure Conan is funny and all, but if last night’s utterly inane, albeit highly entertaining conversation revolving around “Choco Taco” proved anything, it’s that there is no such thing as too much Andy Richter and definitely such thing as too little.
The Ugly: That this TV Addict is getting too old for this sh*t, failed to stay up past 11:35PM, and embarrassingly enough, had to watch the majority of THE TONIGHT SHOW… this morning.
