That whole Shatner thing was just great. I mean, it's pretty common for people not to be able to the Vulcan thing, but the fact that Kirk of all people can't? GOLD.

Shatner was HILARIOUS. I thought I was going to die when he couldn't do the Vulcan hand gesture. And then when he flipped Conan off and Conan got on the desk...
HAHAHA! That was funny...found it interesting that CoCo didn't ask him any questions about the new Star Trek movie

Conan's been on an absolute tear these past few weeks. He still seems to be adjusting to the format change, which I guess is a Tonight Show thing (monologue, commercial, skit, commercial, Guest 1, commercial, Guest 1 again, etc...), but he's still doing well.

Peeping Tom Cruise over the bathroom stall killed me.

No. The Tonight Show insider on Twitter said that he's too much of a fraidy cat to get one.
I could tell right away. His arm wasn't even red.

You can watch up to two weeks of episodes on Hulu, I believe. Also at the tonight show website as well. They have clips there too.

Conan: "I won't stay if bumped later"

Conan O'Brien released a statement Tuesday afternoon regarding NBC's late-night situation, and his place in it:

3:41 PM ET

People of Earth:

In the last few days, I’ve been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I’ve been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I’ve been absurdly lucky. That said, I’ve been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision.

Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future. It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.

But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.

Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn’t the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.

So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn’t matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.

There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.

Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way.

Yours,

Conan
NBC better do something or Conan is off to another network or back to New York.

I love this bit from MSNBC. Here's some of it -

Reading between the lines of Conan’s statement


Conan's real quotes are in bold.

"That said, I've been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision."

But: My boss wants a decision now! Careful what you wish for …


"Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009."

See, this has been in the works long before “someone” had the bright idea to experiment/manage for margins at 10 p.m.


"Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future."

Translation: This isn’t just a job to me, this is a dream.

Further translation: Leno’s heart wasn’t in it when he punched in for the “The Jay Leno Show” — it was painfully obvious. At least I was committed to the brand, and not just phoning it in.



"Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35."

I was left out of this decision entirely.



"For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting."

See, that’s why the call it "The TONIGHT Show” and not “The Tomorrow Show.”


"The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn't the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy."

How many ways do I have to put this? I have been loyal to NBC.


"So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it."

But I will walk if my only alternative is to abide to this plan you cooked up. Deckchairs, meet Titanic.



"There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer ..."


(wink)

... "and honestly have no idea what happens next."

I’m just really glad that I have a great relationship with Kevin Reilly (president of Fox) and that we had such a connection before HE got fired from NBC, only to be replaced by someone who had to leave early when his experiment didn’t work out. Life sure is funny.


"My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work."


Let’s not make this any worse than it already is, NBC. This isn’t just about me. I’ve got an entire show full of employees who would like to know what their future looks like, too.


"Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way."

Yours,

(only until we can figure a way out of this contract),

Conan
