  • Swing and a miss.

    Conan O'Brien continues to struggle with his monologues as we were blessed with yet another Los Angeles Clippers joke and some lowbrow Paris Hilton humor as well. The Tonight Show traditionally has a longer monologue than Late Night, but maybe they should look into shortening it as Jimmy Fallon's show works by only speaking for three minutes or so before cutting to the first segment or guest.

    The segment about the actors an celebrities responding to questions was mildly amusing, but this is far from Jay Leno's Headlines and Jaywalking skits or even Jimmy Kimmel's recurring gags with Guillermo and Uncle Frank.
