I don't follow it much anymore but I assume Leno gets a lot of guests from NBC shows and NBC Universal Studio movies which gives him a leg up.

Sorry fans this show might not last too long IMO.
I caught the three episodes – the only original thing may be the backdrop – besides his jump up at the beginning and the hip swivel thing (don’t know what it means) what exactly does he do?

The Hoarder was classic Conan! That was probably the creepiest character the show has ever introduced! That face! Those eyes! Those shifting eyes!

The rest of Thursday's show was also classic Conan. Quirky guests, effects not working right (Andy's green shirt gaffe might have been an accident), some reasonably funny skits... It felt more than ever that the old show was finally back on TV.

If Conan manages to maintain a younger audience of two million per show, that would be music to the advertisers. And with only four shows per week, that would give the crew some time to develop decent shows and not try to do too much at once.

Watched the first two shows and will leave up to the demographics that enjoy Conan's type of humour. It wears off quickly.

The weak point seems to be the guests. There are a lot of nights where the guests simply don't interest me. I usually look at an upcoming guest list to figure out the nights I want to watch. I mean, come on. Bob Saget is going to be on next Wednesday. And the only musical guest interesting me within this week and the next are the Decemberists on Thursday. I don't see a way to see the guest list on Conan's website, so that may be why. But I'm getting my info from here, which tends to be very handy:

At least Harrison Ford and Rosario Dawson's appearance should make up for the presence of Saget. p:

BTW, what's with Ford? He's getting creepier and creepier every time he shows up! They talk about kids and schools, and his face looked like what you would find on a Wanted poster!

Yeah, I know what you mean. The more I see him, the more he looks restrained and uncomfortable. And that's not just from Conan, but everywhere else I've seen him interviewed. He doesn't make a very good interview because he never seems to have much enthusiasm. Well, except for the part when asked about a new Indiana Jones.

I saw an interview with him from around the time Indy 4 was in theatres and I could pretty much tell from that interview that the movie wouldn't be very good, because they hardly talked about it at all, and mostly other stuff, yet he was there to promote it.
