So Conan O’Brien made his return to television last night (*Hold for applause*) on his new TBS show, Conan, and in true form, the man was charming, hilarious, and still pretty pissed off at NBC for throwing him under the bus for some moon-faced douchebag who stopped being funny sometime around the Regan administration.
“Welcome to my new show, Conan. People ask me why I named the show “Conan.” I did it so I’d be harder to replace. This is an exciting night. I’m glad to be on cable. The truth is, I’ve dreamed of being a talk show host on basic cable ever since I was 46. I’m going to be honest: It’s not easy doing a late-night show on a channel without a lot of money and that viewers have trouble finding. So that’s why I left NBC.” SOURCE
YA BURNT, NBC! Okay, so chances are Jay Leno probably isn’t out there sobbing into the piles of money he earned by being terminally unfunny, but between Conan’s return and the fact that Leno got his ass handed to him by both David Letterman AND Jon Stewart, it is pretty fun watching his show go down like a fat woman at an all you can dessert bar. Speaking of which, how’s your mom Leno? OH YA BURNT AGAIN!!!
