              He detailed how hard it is to get a TV show to air on a network while talking to Stern this AM. He is actually pretty happy things have worked out this way because its a lot less stress and really good money to be back on the Conan show at this point.

              You have to give him credit for trying, though. I'm glad he's coming back now.

              andy richter controls the universe was an awesome show that fox should never have cancelled(surprise surprise). but hey announcer is pretty much the easiest job in show business, and I bet he makes pretty good money doing it, so wtf not.

            I'd pick the redux album. Everything seems cleaner and concise. Garden is my favorite song on there.

              Its not....actually quite the opposite. Everything is compressed and "louder" because hey, thats "what kids like".

      I laughed when I heard some TV critic say that Conan was "stiff with guests and unable to ad lib like Jay Leno". Apparently he never saw the Conan O'Brien show.

        Apparently he never saw the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, either.

        You know where you saw that? Please tell me they were being sarcastic.

          They would have to be. No real, actual human being with senses could watch either show and possibly come to that conclusion.

        the fuck? That TV critic is either a troll or he watched bizarro conan and not the real conan

      REMEMBER TO SET YOUR DVRS FOR THE NEW SHOW!!!

      If you previously had Conan season passed it won't switch over to his new show because it technically has a new title.
