It's like Sex and the Suburbs and 30 Rock all rolled into one…
I won’t even pretend to know the details of Conan O’Brien’s departure from the Tonight Show. As someone who was never invested in late night talk shows, I never really watched any of them – Leno, Letterman, CoCo, Fallon or Kimmel. Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert had me early on and then not very frequently. I’m in bed at 11:30, or watching things I DVRed from earlier in the day. It never honestly occurred to me to record a late night talk show. Too topical. Too strange watching something recorded late at night during the day.
What I can tell you is that if there’s a definition of class, Conan’s picture is right next to it. And if you missed the show, direct yourself immediately to the following: http://tv.gawker.com/5455131/
Conan gets to do what he loves, every day. That’s special and kudos to him for admitting it and being thankful. I’ll be there, performing at that show in the 7/11 parking lot with my comical punk rock band – even though I’m not very funny or musically talented at all.
