The first show was just about perfect. In saying that I mean that it had the right tone to keep the audience Leno built up. If Conan had come out to wacky I think he might alienate some of his viewers. His opening bits were funny - but compared to his Late Show stuff - a bit light. I think he will push the envelope a little bit more each week - but he has to give everyone time to get used to him. I hope Andy Richter is here to stay. I am also very interested to see what Conan does with the town of L.A. Its like a whole new playground for him.
Great first show - I'll keep watching!
