Anyone catch the show tonight?  I actually laughed a couple of times.   :)

I laughed a bit too.  I like Conan a lot, and I think he's only going to do well at all if he maintains his norm and keeps his regular audience interested.  The old folks who followed Leno will not like Conan, but I also believe there's no way to win them over either.

They'll simply go onto Letterman IMO.

Letterman I like as well.  I loathed Leno.

You've echoed all my sentiments in all of that.

We watched it last night, and laughed a couple times as well.  I've always enjoyed Conan and his show, so I hope he does well at the Tonight Show.  Like it was mentioned, I don't know how well he'll go over with the older crowd, but I think some of that is expected (plus, they can get Jay again at 9 in the Fall).  I know my parents (and their age group) seemed to always watch Leno, while we were more with Conan/Letterman.  I have nothing against Leno necessarily, he seems like a nice enough guy, just not as funny/entertaining to me.

I loved Leno and hated to see him go.  I've watched very little Conan, so I'm not going to pass judgement on the show just yet.  I did enjoy the opening last night with him running across the US.

I'll watch some more Conan before I decide if I'm going to stick with it, or use that first half hour of the show to catch up on my DVR'd stuff.

I like Conan and Letterman because they are witty and spontaneous. Whenever I watched Leno all his jokes seemed so obvious.

That's because 9 chances out of 10 you heard them before.  He lifts a lotta **** off other people...  I can't stand him.

I'm glad that Conan has not changed the format of his show to satisfy the older people who watched Leno to gain more ratings.  His show is fine the way it is and is very funny.  If the old people don't like it they can watch "Old School" Leno when he comes back in the fall with his new show.  The Fonzie finishing at the Urinal and the Creepy Tom Cruise Wax figures were hilarious this week.

Conan O'Brien hits head during 'Tonight' stunt

Read this article tonight that Conan hit his head while doing the taping for Fridays show and they had to cancel it.  I hope he is okay. ???  Sounds like he might be, since he is joking about it. :-\

NBC sighs and let's out a collective... "OK, I guess if you're alright you can do it...  really though, you don't want Jay to sit in for you just for tonight?  :-\ "
