Does anyone out there really need the whole “Conan VS. Leno” thing introduced anymore? By now, everyone knows that NBC’s screwing over Conan O’Brien in an epic way, that Jay Leno’s on a lot of people’s “naughty” list, and that “The Tonight Show” will be getting a new host after Friday. So, what’s new? Conan spending wasting $1.5 million of NBC’s money in the most ridiculous way possible on last night’s show. Read on for the clip, my gentle Examiner readers…
Conan O’Brien announced last night that, while he’s leaving “The Tonight Show” on Friday and he’s still very upset about that, there is an upside to this whole mess: he can still waste NBC’s money while he’s on the air. And that’s precisely what he did last night:
That’s one of the better sketches that’s come out of this thing. Does that count as a sketch? Once again, we’d like to remind comedy fans– if you’re not already doing so, as we’ve been telling you to do this for the past week– that they really, really need to be watching “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien” this week. With each passing night, Conan just gets a little more obviously-angry with NBC, and this sketch last night was the new high-water mark for “Angry Conan Causing Trouble”. Hilarious sketch, if you can even call it that.
