i'm wondering if he is going to bring the whole gang or if he is just going to walk into the tonight show, the final ep made me think he was going to drop the late night crew, but i guess we will just have to wait and see

The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tonight_Show_with_Conan_O%27Brien)

Many members of the Late Night cast and crew will make the transition to The Tonight Show: The Max Weinberg 7, the house band from O'Brien's Late Night, will serve as house band on O'Brien's new show;[3][4] Andy Richter, who served as O'Brien's sidekick from 1993 to 2000, will be the show's announcer; Jeff Ross, who served as O'Brien's Late Night executive producer in New York, will assume the same role for Tonight.[1] It is also known that frequent actors and writers for the series such as Brian McCann (probably best known for his characters Preperation H Raymond, S&M Lincoln, the angry bar patron at Joe's, etc), Brian Stack (God, The Interrupter, Artie Kendall the Bigoted 1940s Crooner Ghost), Pierre Bernard and presumably most others will make the move along with head writer Mike Sweeney.

I'd like to say I'm surprised but I'm really not. I wonder if Lorne Michaels is going to commit to him like he did Conan or finally come to his senses and realize that Jimmy Fallon was never and will never be funny.

Of course now it's time for Craig Ferguson to shine in that time slot so it's just as well.

the interesting bit is wondering if he's going to change his style, moving to 1130

Joe
05-26-2009, 10:01 PM
as far as changing for the time slot, he will get to use all of lenos old bits that he isnt carrying to the 10o'clock show.

and jimmy fallon, wow he is really bad, i watched like the first week of unfunny shows and havent watched sence. hopefully he will get fired.


and i really like the chase show, i thought it was funny


and now someone replies "you would'

Conan ain't changin shit. Triumph and Masturbating Bear are showing up in the first week. He's going to be the last guest on Leno's last Tonight Show stint on Friday. They tried to get Johnny to do a "passing of the torch" interview with Leno when he left but Johnny nixed that idea, at least Leno is being nicer. (Considering how Leno really isn't going anywhere expect 10 PM, that probably isn't that big a deal)

Ugly
05-27-2009, 11:53 PM
Also Falon isn't going anywhere, either. His ratings, shockingly, dumbfoundingly, leveled out to equal with Conan's numbers. That's one of those things where you just kind of wonder about the taste level of people out there.

to be fair, I'd assume Falon is funnier than Furgison, so he doesn't have much competition (the last half-hour of Kimmel from 12:30 to 1 PM is just guest run-off and usually a pretty shitty band). I watched Falon's first episode and half of his second or third. That's it. I'm done. I gave him a full show and a little bit. That's enough.

i'm sure it beats doing whatever it is you do

which sure beats the hell out of what you do

Just saying he should have stayed on as a sidekick... being the announcer is a big fucking disappointment IMO

Ugly
05-28-2009, 01:13 AM
He'll be sidekicking the fuck out of it here, and they'll definitely be bantering back and forth (while Andy is aside in his annoucer's podium and not on the couch but whatever) who cares what his official job title is. Aside from the pre-interview banter, Andy really didn't do anything else during the lion's share of the show. (Yes, he had some great moments with the guests, but those were rare and only notable because, really, he didn't DO anything most of the time)

it's the same thing and he probably had a lot more fun "failing" than he would have if he stayed a sidekick.

you'd be incredibly wrong there

Ferguson is hysterical, and he is an improv comic. It's almost like The Late Show with Eddie Izzard.

I also love his "Rather Late Show with Prince Charles" bit.

05-30-2009, 10:32 AM
There's no way his show can stay the same - you have to dumb it down so much for the larger audience.

Leno probably wouldve been great on a late, late show but had to settle into predictable, boring shit for the networkam

Trotskilicious
05-30-2009, 11:31 AM
yeah that's what i figured.

of course with the same head writer (who is a member of Clan Mac Suibhne) they'll probably do ok. Letterman is still funny.

it's really amazing to me that leno always got better ratings than letterman. leno is usually the antithesis of funny. his writers always seemed to forget that a punchline was something the audience should <i>not</i> be expecting.

You are completely overestimating the mental capacity of the general population. This is a country that considers Red Lobster fine dining and people like Brittany Spears talented.

Jay Leno in his Tonight Show form, to them, is a god.

ravenguy2000
05-30-2009, 09:53 PM
There was an article written about him a few years back, I don't remember what magazine it is.

But apparently he's been doing a standup show at the same club, once a week for years and his material has never changed or updated, at all, ever. And of course people come to see him because he's Jay but the author marveled at the way he could just peel off hours and hours of jokes which never strayed far from Monica Lewinski, OJ Simpson, and Michael Jackson. I guess for some people it's like chicken soup in comedy form.

Nimrod's Son
05-30-2009, 10:21 PM
I wish I had the entire Bill Hicks rant somewhere on Leno, where he talks about the gy selling out and his entire career trajectory.

05-30-2009, 10:36 PM
I thought his stand-up routine was still considered to be good? Guess I'm wrong on that - but I swear I heard when he did his Vegas run a few years ago people were saying how good it was.

i watched Leno last night just for Conan and was seriously astounded at how unfunny he was. Like if I didn't know it was a comedy program going in I wouldn't have understood what was going on at all. The Jaywalking segment was mildly amusing but that's just because of the dumbass people.

I thought he's been doing incredibly well so far. It's a lot like the old show but Conan really seems more invigorated. He's totally into it an relaxed like he's always been there. Also, it was a major shock (in a good way) to see Andy Richter back. I had no clue that he was going to be the new announcer until I tuned into the show for the first time. Another thing to note: it seems that a lot of the self-depricating jabs at himself and his show are gone. You know, the whole "All 23 of you watching tonight" schtick.

i would say no.

both sets are oriented the same way, but the sets are completly diff, lenos set was wood and squares and borring, where conans is round and stary, and shiny, it is almost an homage to the old conan rounded set, only much much brighter.
