I don't know what you've been watching but I think Conan is hilarious. Long before this week, he was consistenty more original and funnier than Leno.Conan is unwatchable. He's juvenile but thinks he's witty. At the same time, he's one arrogant, sob. He can't accept anyone getting the last laugh even an invited legitimate comic. He has to continually one-up any guest with his childish antics to get the zombie audience to laugh.
This week he's been particularly edgy as he takes the jabs at NBC - the interview with Ricky Gervais last night was almost over the top (from Ricky's side).
I've been to see the old Tonight Show with Jay Leno live twice as I used to be a fan. But never again! I've seen taping of Kimmel as well as I really like his humor and show. And I sure hope that Conan makes it to his last week when I'll be attending - can't wait.
