    Conan roaming the Universal lot with that desk-car wasn't particularly funny, either.

    Or when they try to make the Universal tour interesting by doing bits outside the studio.

    In the hope that it'll get better. "The Tonight Show" with Conan still feels like one of his one-week stunt trips, like when he did shows in Chicago and Frisco. It doesn't feel like he's settled in LA yet.

    Ah. I'm really liking Conan's Tonight Show as is, in all honesty. My only complaint is how often Twitter Tracker is used. While it's certainly not perfect, it's been awesome more often than not, I feel.

    I didn't say I didn't like it. I just think the bits are rather lame. Also, adding Andy at the all-star baseball game. I agree with Stu. That is how the show still feels, and he's been on for over a month.

    At least Twitter Tracker isn't on as much as it used to be. But I doubt that'll go away, especially with the graphics they have made for it.

    They did something similar on Late Night in February 2008. The unctious "Twitter Tracker" announcer did a bunch of things for Leap Day that year, including the bad puns.

    Brian McCann does the voice. I like the use of the voice. I just wish it was used for different reasons, like on Late Night. I loved Double Letter Week.

    I'm more of a Brian Stack fan, myself. Loved Gabriel the Knight Rider studio a few nights back. I miss the Interrupter.

    The Interrupter was great, but so was The Fantastic Guy.

    We may not like it, but Twitter Tracker got a Web Cheer Of The Week from TV Guide. They say Conan now has a something to attract an audience a decade younger. Or something like that.

    I really wish that didnt make as much sense as it does. I'll never warm up to Twitter Tracker, but kids'll love the references to their modern toys... and I guess they'll love the animations that go with it. I still don't understand why the same skit couldn't be done with more variety, like the "Double Letter Week" and "Leap Day" skits.

    I read on another site that that David Letterman Repeats had higher viewership than Tonight Show new episodes. That's. . . kinda sad.

    Ten years ago Leno repeats held a nearly 2-to-1 advantage over new Letterman broadcasts. Precious little has changed.

    Assuming you're in the US, it's up on Hulu. Terrific third act.

    That guy got his car blown up for one thing. He didnt seem too excited either considering 1. he was getting his car blown up which was a cool way if you had to get rid of it 2. got to meet Conan and be on tv and 3. got a brand new Lexus. I wouldve been like foaming at the mouth haha. Other than that, I dont remember much else being important.
