It looks like this was one of the last ever episodes of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien as Jay Leno has signed a deal to return as the show's host.
And judging by this monologue, you could tell why. Stop making these generic jokes about your employment. Do something creative like Jimmy Kimmel did with donning a Jay Leno wig and chin, or David Letterman's Law and Order: Leno Victims Unit. Nobody thinks you're going to work at Starbuck's Conan.
Ricky Gervais was not really funny either, and I'm a big fan of his. His animated show could be good though, but 30 minutes of three people sitting at a table? That could grow old very fast.
