I thought Conan’s first show was classic Conan. The opening scene where he is running from NYC to LA was a really cute way to introduce the show. The skit he did where he was directing a Universal Studios tour was funny as was his interview with Will Ferrell. Plus the amazing surprise of Andy Richter, Conan’s old side kick is back, but behind a podium this time, that was a little awkward. I wish Andy would sit next to Conan like old times, and like a legit side kick should.
Bottom line is that hosting for Conan is not new, so he doesn’t have to make the same kind of adjustments as say Jimmy Fallon has had to to take over Conan’s old show. I’m excited to see Conan in an earlier time slot every night!
