After the first full week of the show the monologues still are not getting better, and are still really long. There's no need for this topical humor, yet despite making Paris Hilton and Clippers jokes, it just feels like Conan is not ready for primetime. Filling time with the telenovelas, that nobody enjoyed on Late Night, and a skit with Andy and he rafting down the Los Angeles river is not the kind of thing you would see during Johnny Carson's day.
David Duchovny was an entertaining guest, but he really does not know how to appear on a family show as almost everything he said was wildly inappropriate. And Bill Burr is not a comedian who deserves to appear on TV at all. Just terrible, terrible material.
