Funny, fitting closing to a premature end. When Will Ferrell broke out the cowbell, I really laughed. I feel badly for Conan, but then again, unlike most of us or his peers, he can dry his tears with $32 million or so in this economy. Truly, I wish him well and hope he reaps bigger and better things. Jay should have Jay-walked.

Not all his comedy bits were silly and dumb. Many were complex and high concept which made the show fantastic. I think NBC should of built on this mix until greater success. This from someone that watches some of each the different shows ie. Jay, Conan, Dave, Jon, Jimmy,....

You must have an IQ of 40 if you thought Conan was "high concept".

Conan, needs to improve his comedy for his next show, some of it like the masturbating bear was not funny and actually stupid. This is the type of stuff 5th grade boys would chuckle in the back of the classroom. He needs to raise the level of his comedy. Conando was funny so was triumph the insult dog, but the reason Johnny Carson was so well like was that he had Famous authors and scientist on along with "average Americans" who accomplished something unique.

If Conan wants to rise beyond just a comic he needs to raise the level of his show. He is a smart guy better educated than any of his rivals, he needs to use that education to improve his next show. He can do this and still remain accessible by most Americans. He needs to remain politically neutral. You couldn't tell Carson's politics, that is the way it should be.

Even though he won't be the heir to the tonight show, Carson is still the master and all late night hosts still want to be compared to him.

Leno, is dumming down his show with stupid flirting with the guests that is getting creepier instead of sexier with each passing year. You can flirt without getting creepy and Leno's comments would get him slapped in any other situation.
