Poll: how did Conan do?

Last evening the helm of The Tonight Show was taken over by Conan O’Brien who had to jog from NY to California to get there.

All in all, I thought Conan did a great job, the new studio set was bright, colorful, and had a fresh look, and Will Ferrell as First Guest was Will Ferrell Funny if a little up-stagey.

But enough about me…how do You think Conan did?

Update June 3: so far ‘Great as expected’ is ahead! Have you voted yet?

    • Hi Donna…indeed!

      i used to watch Conan’s show years ago because my daughter liked it/him but have long favored his now-previous opponent on CBS, TV’s Craig Ferguson who often seems to need no guests – Craig is a show all his own (esp when puppets are available – although he’s curtailed his use of them lately, it seems. Still – “it’s a great day for America” says our naturalized Craig.)

      Twice since Conan’s debut I’ve peeked in to see how things are going but my Irish cuppa tea sits on another’s Scottish table!

  2. I was in the 25% who thought Conan didn’t do such a great job. The show dragged along. The piece w/ his car was funny but I could have done without the tram tour humor. I used to enjoy Conan from time to time but can’t see him succeeding too much. He’s not as funny, personable, or connected as Jimmy Kimmel and will have to hope that viewers of Jay decide that after they watch him they’ll want to watch another 1 hour late night show right after? Who is really going to watch 2+ hrs of latenight each night? I think you’ll the ratings padded heavily with TV sets that are on while their viewer has long ago fallen asleep just after Jay’s monalogue. You gotta love the nielson rating system.

  4. Conan did his poor, tired old show bits. Nothing funny for over 90% of the inaugural hour. Wish he’d given it over to Andy and Max, period. Conan i s out of his depth, h e will not hve the legs or character of Leno, never mind the other golden predecessors.

    • Ah hah! Since i’ve been preferring Craig Ferguson over Conan i didn’t recognize C’s tired old show bits so they seemed new-ish to me!!

      Now a fave of mine, Jimmy Fallon, will go mano-a-mano with Craig, who challenged Jimmy last night (or early this morning actually) in their 12:35 am time slot.

      Thanks a bunch for your comment, jude ;p

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
