I feel bad giving a mediocre score to an episode of Conan's show, because I've always been a hardcore fan. Watching tonight's episode constantly fought feelings of awkwardness. Conan did a great job at handling Garry Shandling's semi-rude, (certainly not helpful for an entertaining interview), and irritating conversation skills... however, I felt like I was watching an awkward moment in NBC's "The Office" during the entire interview... or maybe like Garry was trying to be Andy Kaufman and planned to laugh by himself watching the show later that night. When the interview ended, I was so relieved, but then he came back for the cooking segment! He ruined the cooking segment by not playing along with anyone's jokes and constantly interrupting and being an ass. The show ended with a poor live mix of a less than pristine performance by someone that I don't even remember the name of.
NBC, please don't invite Garry back to the show!
