Conan O’Brien

Monday, November 8th can not get here soon enough. 17 long days until the return of Conan O’Brien. His show on TBS, “Conan,” will air at 10:00 p.m. While his very first guest might be decided by an online poll (one of the choices is the Pope), it has been announced that Seth Rogen will be on the first show along with musician Jack White.

To me, Conan is by far the best of the late-night comedians.  Years ago I was a David Letterman fan.  But I felt as time went on he became “too safe” in his comedy.  And I’ve never really enjoyed Jay Leno.  Some folks tell me that I would love Craig Ferguson.  I’m not even really sure what that means.  But what I do know is that with Conan being on cable, it’s going to allow him to take his comedic bits quite a bit further.  And he’s had some time to think of some funny stuff.
