    I’m with you Andre 99%. I just want to add that comedians typically do well with Andy on the couch.

    I enjoy Andy. I listened to his entire interview with Howard Stern with great pleasure and I loved his Fourth of July sketch with Conan. He just needs to seriously understand he is not the star. Not a single person tunes in just to see Andy.

  • Brad

    Does Ferguson ever get paid by Twitter for “Check the Tweets”?

  • Diana Santiago

    I might be biased, but I like the Conan + Andy “sexual tension”. ;)

  • Diana Santiago

    Totally not related to ratings or comedy, but a very interesting piece by Andy Richter.

    Did anyone else notice Conan’s hair wasn’t as Red as usual Monday night?

  • Brad

    I sometimes think the ppl in the booth color the show because of you notice last night. Conan was a little more tan then usual too. I do want to say his director needs to go. The wash light behind Conan was very noticeable and his cutting back and forth with the black crowd was stupid. It was a hilarious bit! But to cut from the one crowd to the next, Conan should’ve stood in front of Andy Richter and kept the cameras in that direction. Whoever is directing has to be the worst director I’ve ever seen.

  • Brad

    I forgot about this…
    Was Letterman right or wrong about his spoiler?

    http://www.examiner.com/article/david-letterman-s-so-called-spoiler-on-the-dark-knight-rises-right-or-wrong

    If you have not seen the movie, do not read this!!!

  • Diana Santiago

    HAHAHAHAHA I remember that. Gotta love Letterman.

  • Ji (g)

    I was thinking he/they colored his hair a little darker because of the CO shooter showing up with bright red hair. They wanting to stay as far from the comparision as they could.

  • Brad

    Letterman is a genius! Sharpest tool in the late night shed, even if I disagree with his politics.

    That’s a good thought Ji (g), but he’s done this a lot more than just last night.

  • Paul Douglas

    I like the Conan/Andy double act. Conan is at his best with someone to talk to and Andy and Conan have amazing comedic compatability. The kind of people who really dig Conan tend to like the genuine camaraderie between Conan and Andy. I loved this from some years back: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drMRNtbuarQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    Meanwhile, in ratings news, TBSveryfunny seem to have finally fully executed on their plan. Conan now works as the flagship they intended and the ratings match the hype. The Networks are barely beating them where it counts (especially the anaemic numbers CBS is putting in) and Conan trends flat or up against NBC and CBS trending slightly down.

  • Ji (g)

    I’m back to watching Conan every night at least for the first 35 minutes or so depending on the guest. Even the intro sounds like you’re at a happening.

  • Mario

    Paul Douglas lies like the rest of them.

    Leno is king and won’t be beaten by any standard.

    Conan can’t beat anything…lowest rated garbage on television. Nothing is lower rated than Conan.

  • Diana Santiago

    Paul, that’s one of my favorite videos! The best thing about Conan and Andy interaction is their capacity of improvisation. They should do remotes together. Letting loose those two around LA would be awesome!

  • Diana Santiago

    Ji, it’s not the first time Conan dyes his hair. It’s an FCC requirement. ;)

  • Aaron

    Mario, Leno “won’t be beaten by any standard”? Conan, Fallon, Kimmel, and even Letterman have beaten him in the online realm.

  • Ji (g)

    An FCC requirement to “dye your hair” …. mmmmmm sarcasum maybe??

    The timing was spot on then, I don’t believe in coincidences.

  • Brad

    Too many pilots have been made for a show that follows Conan. We’ll see how it goes.

    Conan’s monologue was excellent tonight. Lewis Black on TDS was also excellent. Leno had the best sketch of all tonight w/ SLJL syndrome. I’ll do my best to find a clip of it soon.

  • Brad
  • Chris

    Add Stewart and Colbert to contract renewals…Stewart until 2015 at Daily Show.

    So we’ve got Letterman, Ferguson, O’Brien, Kimmel, Stewart, and Colbert now with announced contracts.

    So, so strange that not a peep about Jay Leno. They say he’s signed already to 2014, but NBC’s lack of faith in him now is astounding.
