Conan O’Brien’s Exit
No, it’s not a good thing that Conan is “gone”. Okay, he’ll re-surface in a few (7) months. He even joked he may be the sidekick on the Andy Richter Show until that point. However, Conan’s final show was a reminder – a fitting tribute – to Johnny Carson’s comedy. That comedy, as Conan has so stated so emphatically, is the exact reason why he had dreamed to take the show. It is also the exact reason why he chose to leave, refusing to see The Tonight Show’s gloriously famous and revered brand be dragged through the mud. At least, at his control.
Certainly, Leno may have trouble trying to squeeze back into his prom dress. Yes, he’s been around the gym before, but this is a whole new kind of Phys Ed activity. He now appears as the bad guy on a show which has sustained itself as a mechanism of change. There was some kind of pattern to this madness originally – Leno gets Carson’s and Conan gets Leno’s. It was an evolution through the times – through different eras of comedy. While the three of them have implanet late night viewers with their own brands of comedy, one can’t help but feel that tonight’s Tonight was the final curtain call in a lasting legacy of Hollywood superstardom.
Jimmy Fallon pouring one out for his homie and his band, The Roots, posting Conan’s head on their drum set.
Fallon will now be urged to step up in his absence and, although his show has seen poor ratings and (frankly) under-the-weather quality, this is a good first step to recovery for the former SNL icon.
Patrice Cormier/Mikael Tam
His elbow to the head of Mikael Tam was a reminder of the malicious violence that is not intended for sport. On the flip side, those wanting to see Cormier punished were probably disappointed that Tam’s televised response today on TSN was almost as bad. In the words of Madeleine from The Departed, “If you lied, you would have an easier time getting what you want.”
His rumbles through and around everything in red at the Saints/Cardinals game last weekend is a fitting amp-up for this Sunday’s NFC Championship against the Minnesota Vikings.
Ironically, his girlfriend and OK Magazine covergirl Kim Kardashian has anything but a bad ass.
P.S. – OK Magazine showed “diet pills” as part of Kim’s working out plan. I’m not knocking Kim on this, but does anybody else really think that caffeine pills area a technique for working out? I’ve heard liposuction also works.
