    Monikka, you really summarized Ferguson’s show really well. I tend to forget he does so much with so little. I just get upset knowing he makes bank but does the same thing day in and day out.

  • Drum

    Once again Fegruson reminds me why i love watching his show.

  • Monikka

    Drum, Craig is capable of much more eloquence but he was obviously upset, as we all should be, except maybe the NRA, who enables such massacres.

    Brad, Craig makes bank specifically because he CAN do so much with so little. I know you’re a fan of Kimmel but can you honestly imagine him doing what Craig does with no writers and no toupee?

  • Diana Santiago

    Thanks for posting this Drum. I was going to post it here.

  • Brad

    I agree Monnikka. I’m just saying Kimmel and Fallon get paid so little compared to everyone else and do so much more for it. With Fergsuon, you really think he can’t come up with another second bit beyond “Check the Tweets”? I dont get why Letterman and Ferguson never change it up. Everyone else does, EVEN LENO! I like Craig, I was watching a bunch of his show’s clips on YouTube last night, he’s freakin’ hilarious, but it got me remembering one thing, without Geoff the show would a lot different and for the worse. If he ever moves up and has to scrap the robot, I… I wouldn’t know what to do.

  • Brad

    That was definitely one for the vault. That really moved me. Handled it like a true broadcaster.

  • Chris

    Nonsense about the NRA. They enabled this no more than the ABA endorses a corrupt lawyer or the ABA librarians.

    The fault belongs solely to one mentally deranged man. Nobody else.

  • Monikka

    Nonsense? The intense and very expensive lobbying of the NRA is the reason this country is flooded with assault weapons, easily available to the mentally deranged.

  • JB

    Kimmel and Fallon don’t get paid as much but they have plenty of other resources to spend on the show, especially considering their bands have to get paid too. I think Ferguson’s monologues were better pre-Geoff, at least before Josh Robert Thompson started doing them live. When he talked his way into a corner, he’d do a better job of finding a way to get out of it because he didn’t have the robot to fall back on. I love Geoff’s interaction with guests though, that’s something they should do more of

  • Brad

    If he didn’t have guns, he’d just use ninja stars. And if people weren’t so affaird of using guns and caring one in this country, maybe someone could’ve defended the theater from the lunatic. Every house owner in Switzerland is required to have a gun and everyone has to go through the Switz Army for a year after high school. Because of this, Switzerland has the lowest gun-related crime in all the first-world nations. Guns are not the issue.

    Anyways, I wonder if they scrap the robot if they will just have Josh Robert Thompson be the actually sidekick.

  • Brad

    Just remember this Monnikka. Hilter invaded and took over liberal France in a matter of weeks. He never even attempted to invade Switzerland.

  • Chris

    Even if they were illegal, betcha this loser would have had them anyway.

    A problem in America…we blame everybody else.

  • Aaron

    Craig used to do more skits before he started doing Check the Tweets. Here is his parody of “Larry King Live”.

  • Brad

    Oh. Maybe there’s a good reason he doesn’t do many other bits. That one was, uh, decent. I’ll have to shift through YouTube and see.

    By the way, why did Ferguson change is set? It looked a lot nicer and a lot bigger in the early days.

  • Aaron

    I don’t think he ever used a bigger studio. There are ways to manipulate a set in order to make the studio appear smaller than it actually is, though.

  • Brad

    No, its been the same studio since Tom Snyder if I’m not mistaken, but the set has changed. I don’t understand why. With the bookcase, rug and everything, it looked quit impressive. Now there is zero Hollywood magic. We know just how big it is as soon as the director cuts to the second camera as Ferguson hands out candy. Must be a lot easier on the director knowing he doesn’t have to make the studio look more impressive or larger than it really is.

    Anyways, I’m only on this late at night to say I just saw George Lopez: It’s Not Me, It’s You. In the beginning of his HBO special he had a little sketch featuring Lopez driving his cheap lowrider to the Nokia Theater in LA. On his drive he was wished best of luck by Cheetch and Chong, Eva Longoria, but also… Conan O’Brien. Finally something to show that there is little to no bad blood between the two. :)

  • Aaron

    I wonder what the set in Craig’s new studio will look like.

  • Brad

    My bet would be the look of Dennis Miller Live. I actually think he was in the same studio Craig’s going to. I actually believe I’m just paraphrasing someone else’s comment because here’s the video I think he or she used. At the end you can see just how large the audience is.

  • Brad

    JB I think your Geoffrey Peterson is my Andy Ritcher. I think Andy needs to be a lot quiter or fired. I see him as nothing but a distraction. This probably the same you feel during craigs monolgoue. Anyways, Andy’s lack of energy, laziness, and on air of “not caring” (which I believe is half an act and half true) makes him nothing but a drag. This why if I were TBS, I’d fire him instantly!

  • André

    I kind of agree. Andy’s interruptions are only worth it like 1 out of 10 times. He’s funny on his own, in a “I’m bored, I don’t care, that’s dumb” kind of way, but alongside Conan he’s pretty much dead weight. He also has a way of being all awkward with guests who most of the time look like they don’t know why he’s talking at all over Conan or themselves.

    Jimmy Pardo otoh would be AWESOME and has shown great chemistry as a sidekick. He could keep his warm up duties and be a great lower key announcer/sidekick (no couch ffs) on top of it for sure.

    Other than that (and the lack of the occasional remote) I think Conan is doing great.
