Conan O'Brien is not funny!!!!!!!!!
Conan O'Brien is not funny!!!!!!!!!
the guys in my office talked about this. we think it may be a generation thing. i find him funny but my coworkers do not. for reference, i am 24 and they are all about my parents age.
wait, whats this doing in the general form? THATS not funny... we need to get this moved.
on the contrary, I find conan quite funny. His simpsons era writing was really the golden times for the simpsons.
monty python is very good comedy as well.
what is not very good comedy is carrot top.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
Plus his ratings sucked compared to Leno's @ 11:35, another reason NBC wanted him gone. The NBC Brass are total friggin idiots.
Carrot Top is just scary. An example of 'roids and comestic surgery gone horribly wrong.
I've always thought Conan sucked from the get-go when they gave him Letterman's slot.
And the stuff about it "being generational" is such BS. Funny is funny, regardless of age. Conan is not funny. I agree with pcad... NBC is run by morons. When something works - like Jay - you leave it the hell alone.
All TV is about is ratings, which is what gets the advertising dollars to keep the network on in the first place. Although I think with the advent of DVR and Tivo, it really doesn't matter what time a show is on because people will watch it when they want to IF they like the show. If they could start doing Nielsen's on DVRs, perhaps cancellation decisions would be affected.
If Conan jumps to Fox, he'll suck there too.

I have noticed, that since Letterman was busted, his stuff has been a little better.
He has written for and been head writer for some of the most successful shows of the last 20 years. Yeah, he's a talentless hack.
Never thought Conan was funny; for that matter, it's been years since I thought Letterman was funny. Leno took years, too, before he STARTED being funny -- the first few years after Carson were truly bleak. (As far as Jimmy Kimmel, I'm still wondering what degenerate act he performed, and for who, to even get on TV.)
its funny watching them complain
Craig Ferguson is the one that is not funny. Every show starts the same. He walks out onto the stage and makes a couple of stupid gestures and the whole audience laughs like a bunch of hyenas. I just don't get it.

I don't find any of the late night guys very funny. Their introductory stand up schticks are usually predictable and boring. Letterman's top 10 thing is now so contrived and forced that it doesn't even blip on the relevance radar. On the other hand "The Colbert Report" I find genuinely funny.
I can't stand Conan--glad I am not alone. Can't stand the current Letterman, either, but liked the old one. Same with Leno.
I loved Carlson.
I am 31, so between generations, I guess. But I never thought farts were funny when I was 12 years old, but I do now. What gives.
Ernie Kovacs was funnier than all of them rolled into one.
