  • Jeremy Piven guests.

    Okay, I will admit that the human cannonball was kind of cool and really was a sight to be seen, but this was nothing short of a publicity stunt to try and boost the declining ratings for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien by having a circus act on the program. While it may have helped tonight's ratings, I can't see it getting people to ignore Conan's horrible monologues in the long run.

    Jeremy Piven (Entourage, The Goods Live Hard Sell Hard) was the first true guest and was not the kind of wise-cracking personality you would think given his Ari Gold character he has portrayed for six years. He told an Obama joke that led to dead silence from the crowd and just embarrassed himself out there.
