Trivia

In January 2010, NBC announced that Jay Leno, host of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), from whom Conan O'Brien took over the role as host, would have his not-so-well-received The Jay Leno Show (2009) move towards the 11:35 PM time-slot and that The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009) would be pushed back to the 12:05 AM time-slot. "The Tonight Show" has never aired that late during its almost 60 years on air. Furthermore, this push-back would have meant that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (2009), follow-up to O'Brien's own Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993), would also have been pushed back to a later time-slot, too. When The Jay Leno Show (2009) was officially canceled and it became clear that Leno would get his own new show at 11:35 PM, O'Brien released a statement in which he made clear that he didn't like how NBC handled the situation. He also stated that he wouldn't continue hosting The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009) if it was pushed back to a later time-slot. Eventually that month, it was officially announced that Leno would get "The Tonight Show" back on March 1st and that O'Brien will receive a severance payment of about $33 million from NBC.

Not funny, or at least not yet
4 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I failed to find any of the jokes in his first episode. It was just a bunch of videos - some funny, and some were him just screaming nonsense (for example, the Universal Studios clip). The second episode opened up with a more traditional monologue, but still, it was short and contained very few jokes.

I've enjoyed some of the videos so far, such as the video clip about his old car and his shopping spree. However, most of the show consists of him standing anxiously or screaming in strange voices. I suppose this is a new "Tonight Show" that must be gotten used to, because it used to be much classier.

Let's give Conan a chance, but I've already removed it from my DVR. The first three episodes were very disappointing and from now on, I'll view it online if I want to see how it's going.
