Ok, even (YOU) /tv/ have to admit this was the last good Late Night show before SJW's took over.
>those conversations with Max Weinberg which always ended in awkward staring and camera zooming
>In the Year 2000, IN THE YEAR TWO THOU-SAAAAAAND
>Hey how ya doing there Consey?
And so much more.
It's ok /tv/, you can admit it.
The late night host we wanted, but didn't deserve.
We are a nation of pic related and it sucks.
I'm still pissed he didn't get to keep the Tonight Show and that NBC essentially fucked him over with that stupid Jay Leno primetime shit.
If they didn't do that Leno comedy hour thing then Conan's Tonight Show could have still been going on instead of being stuck with Jimmy "laugh at me please" Fallon.
Old Conan was great but I miss Craig more.
Each person's "last good late night talk show" is defined by the point when they were able to realize the entire format is garbage.
Same with sitcoms.
But they don't admit the formats are garbage, because that would retroactively make their "last good" garbage.
>this was almost 20 years ago
Wait did he do that on the original show too? I barely, vaguely remember something like that back then
Absolutely, though I have a suspicion that there was some things in his contract that kept him from joining rival networks. I don't believe TBS at the time had any late night programming
TBS had George Lopez Tonight which was aimed squarely at the latino community. That failed soon after Conan joined. Then TBS tried to develop more comedy sketch/talk shows with Deon Cole aimed at the black audience and Pete Holmes aimed at the millennial white audience. All of them failed. TBS in general isn't a great place to foster talk shows.
