A bit better overall than most so far, but like I have been saying the monologue still is incredibly awkward. I wanted to rip my hair out when Conan babbled on for two minutes about trying to find a transition from a joke about trucks or something to a joke about donuts.
The Steven Ho stunt double bit was amusing, and is the kind of thing this show needs more of. Conan should do some live skits every once and awhile, not ridiculous taped vignettes like him and Andy rafting down a river. This also allows Conan to be a little goofier when he's playing off a guy trying to take his job seriously, which makes the segment ever funnier.
Dane Cook is not funny, that's all I am going to say on that issue. And Rancid by appearance looks like it would be a hard metal band, but they basically played Snow Patrol like music. Deceiving to say the least.
