Conan last night was amazing.

The saddest part is that I'll never watch Late Night again thanks to Jimmy Phaillon hosting it.

Every once in a while, Screw, we feel exactly the same way. He's going to be absolutely horrid.

Just the commercials for him hosting made me want to scratch my eyes out. Who on earth thought this was a good idea?

The Stripes rocked that shit HARD last night. Good luck in the City of Angels, Conan.

QFT again!


And NSW, I think schizo GAF is back. And probably sober.
At first I thought it was just me that thought the Stripes sucked. Glad I wasn't alone. WTF?

Joel is great, and he's hilarious, but he's like 70. It wouldn't be fair to ask the guy to move across the country at that age. We'll miss him though, for sure.

I think Richter's a good choice. There isn't really any standard on a how a late-night host uses his announcer. I mean, Jay just uses his announcer as an announcer..every now and then he'll be involved in some street skit or something, but that's it. And then you have the way Conan used Joel, and the way Letterman uses Alan Kalter, which is to say, they are given fictional, over the top, but funny, caricature personas to play in slapstick sketches - which is hilarious with Joel, but spotty with Kalter. But then you look at Ed McMahon, he was an absolutely integral part of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, more like a sidekick who also happened to be announcer...I see Conan using Richter in a role like this. I don't think Conan would ask his good friend Richter to do this just to announce Conan at the start of the episode and not be seen again. Anyone could do that for Conan. No, I think Richter is going to be in the McMahon Sidekick(+announcer) mold.

Very interesting I can see Andy being used more in skits & such

It didn't seem clear last week if Joel was coming to California or not. I don't recall him saying anything, unless I missed it. I know there was some sort of segment/tribute to him.

Yay Andy! I'll keep my fingers crossed for more staring contests and desk drives...

Joel will always have a fond place in my heart.
