From The Tonight Show to Marie Callender’s

The last time Conan O’Brien dropped in on David Letterman, Y2K was topical monologue material. In the intervening years, the prize they both coveted also slipped right through O’Brien’s fingers.

The red-haired one did not sound entirely convincing when he insisted (at the top of the clip below) that he is 100% happy at his new TBS home. He then told a funny story about how, the Monday after the Friday of his last Tonight Show broadcast, he was forced to convene his staff at a Marie Callender’s. O’Brien located the restaurant in Burbank, but it’s actually Toluca Lake.

Conan O’Brien Has Oprah and Rupert Murdoch Jokes

During TBS’ upfronts, the network’s beacon of hope — Conan O’Brien — took a couple shots at media heavyweights Oprah and Rupert Murdoch. The Huffington Post reports that O’Brien went through fake Craigslist ads and as he did, the pictures of the alleged authors flashed on a screen behind him.

When Oprah popped up, O’Brien said, “For sale: Controlling interest in OWN. $10 or best offer.” Not bad! But we liked the Murdoch zinger better.

With a picture of Murdoch up, O’Brien deadpanned, “Missed connection: You: beautiful, checking your voicemail. Me: goblin-like, selling your voicemail.” Nicely done.

Metta World Peace Visits Conan O’Brien

With some free time on his hands, Metta World Peace finally sat down with Conan O’Brien Monday night.

The Los Angeles Lakers forward had to cancel a scheduled appearance last month following his elbow incident with Oklahoma City guard James Harden.

With his seven-game suspension winding down, World Peace admitted to O’Brien that he hasn’t called Harden to apologize but spoke with “third parties” to make sure he was OK.

Playoffs or no playoffs, World Peace should have picked up the phone by now to say, “I’m sorry.” But that’s Metta being Metta, I guess.

Everyone’s Favorite San Diego Newscaster Stops by Conan to Announce Anchorman Sequel

Ron Burgundy made the trip up north from San Diego to Burbank today to announce that an Anchorman sequel is in the works. He also took the time to make reference to his “turgid penis” and to suggest Conan O’Brien get immediate plastic surgery. Good times.

Triumph the Insult Dog Rips Golden Collar Awards

Behold the diametrical opposite to all that annual “it’s an honor just to be nominated” nonsense.

In a scathing YouTube video, Conan O’Brien‘s canine correspondent Triumph the Insult Comic Dog rips apart the six nominees for the first-year Golden Collar Awards category of Best Dog in a Television Series. Namely because he isn’t on the list:

Development Drop Out Costs NBCUniversal Nine Million*

CurbedLA started out the New Year by sharing a great reader tip. Someone pointed them to an SEC filing by Thomas Properties Group, which contained confirmation of a nine million dollar kill fee received by the developer from NBCUniversal.

Too bad Arrested Develpment ran on FOX, rather than NBC. Otherwise, the (still pretty good) headline chosen by CurbedLA would have been utterly perfect. From yesterday’s item:

On December 19, 2011, Thomas Properties Group, Inc. and NBC Universal Media LLC mutually agreed to terminate further work on the MetroStudios@Lankershim property that was planned for the Universal City area of Los Angeles. In light of NBCU’s changing requirements for office and post-production space, the planned MetroStudios@Lankershim project was not considered economically viable at this time.

The Sick Get Sicker | Fire The Kindle | Home of The Idiots

  • PRNewser: There’s a new social media site that shows where people are getting sick. This is a great tool for avoiding potentially contaminated spots like the entire world outside of your computer.
  • eBookNewser: Mark down Conan O’Brien as one person who is not a fan of the Kindle Fire.
  • FishbowlDC: In addition to the Big Mac and David Spade, this is why people hate Americans — a congressman allegedly called Michelle Obama a fat ass.

Conan O’Brien Officiates Gay Wedding in… Sigh… New York

Conan O’Brien officiated the marriage of Conan costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein last night on live TV. And it was actually quite beautiful. Conan toned himself down as much as we have ever seen and presided over a short but touching ceremony.

Conan may not have the mainstream audience of The Tonight Show anymore, but we’re pretty sure there are a whole lot of people in his fan base who have never seen anything like this live before. We’re guessing there are quite a few gay teenagers in Texas or Mississippi today who feel a whole lot more hopeful for their future thanks to this show. Too bad Conan had to go all the way to New York to do it. Wasn’t Prop 8 overturned? Can we speed up the whole legalized gay marriage in California thing already? We’re guessing Cronick can’t be the only gay costume designer here in LA who’s looking to get hitched in front of a nationally televised audience.

Conan: Year One

Hard to believe it has been a year since Conan O’Brien launched his show on TBS. Team Coco put together a “convulsion inducing” mutha f’in montage to mark the occasion.

Conan Goes on Fallon, Steals Back Triumph

Conan O’Brien is in New York this week and decided to swing by his old studio–now occupied by Jimmy Fallon. O’Brien made a brief appearance on the show, said hello, and left with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog under his arm. You may recall NBC claimed ownership of Triumph as part of Conan’s exit package from the network. Conan has subtly suggested he disagrees. Looks like he’s done being subtle.

Hooray, juicy intellectual property dispute!
