Conan is boring

I am happy to see that even Bob Lefsetz appears to agree with me that Conan is boring and NBC will need to do something to save this great show. I really liked this quote on Lefsetz Letter:

If NBC were smart, it would immediately pay off Conan and reinstall Jay at 11:35.  But it won’t, it’d rather lose the franchise and blame it on something other than its ineptitude.  Just like the record business!

Letterman is beating Conan

It appears that I am not the only one that thinks that Conan is boring.  Letterman took over the top spot in ratings last week when he had Julia Roberts as his guest and Conan had Eddie Murphy.

Conan’s market share has dropped 56% since he took over on the first of June.

Looks like it is time to start looking for a replacement to the very boring Conan.

Obama Endorses Conan O’Brien

It seems that there is one thing that President Barach Hussein Obama and I disagree on (only ONE thing you ask).  I think that Conan O’Brien is not up to the task of the Tonight Show.  BHO thinks that he is. 

I am so glad that the leader of the free world is worrying about poor Conan in this time of economic unrest and while North Korea is playing nuclear games with us.

I picked up this video from the very funny blog, CrZay.

Conan O’Brien is boring

On Monday, Conan O’Brien was given the keys to one of the best jobs in television.  The Tonight Show has been going strong since 1954 and is one of the longest running shows ever.  It was first hosted by Steve Allen, then Jack Parr (very shortly), followed by the masterful Johnny Carson, and finally Jay Leno.  The producers should have left the show with people that have a first name beginning with “J” since Conan simply doesn’t have what it takes.

It is interesting that Conan took the job over from Leno where he comes from taking the David Letterman vacated show.  Letterman was upset that he didn’t take over for Carson and left to form a show on a rival network.  Leno and Letterman have been battling for the entire time and Leno consistently won.  Now it appears that Letterman will easily have the upper hand since there is no way the very un-funny O’Brien can compete.
