King Conan

I am not a fan of award shows – but I did catch Conan O’Brien’s taped Emmy segment that introduced the show last night. It’s well produced and very funny – touching on my favorite shows Lost, The Office, and 24. Also – the riff on ‘To Catch a Predator IV’ or whatever that Dateline segment is called, is spot-on. Good stuff. Check it out here.

  • Yeah, I thought he did well. Harvard alumns represent!

    The Newhart bit was funny, though mostly due to Newhart himself.

  • Agreed on Newhart. That guy seems timeless… and fearless!!! Conan had to have tapped his writers for a number of those bits.

  • Of course, Conan was great. Hey – he wrote one of my favorite Simpsons episodes ever. Anyone who could dream up ‘School of Hard Knockers’ is O.K. in my book.

  • Okay, I got it now. It had been taking so long to DL, that I kept skipping it, but I just waited and it was pretty good. The Office part was the best and South Park next. That one gives me a good soundbite for use some day, “Mr. O’Brien, come out of the closet.”
