Conan O'Brien truly delivered tonight on the premiere of his TBS show Conan, and from our favorite bear to a snarky (but somewhat tame) opening monologue, we couldn't be more thrilled about his return to television.
When he started off the show, O'Brien joked, "Welcome to my second annual first show ... People ask me why I named the show Conan. I did it so Iâ€™d be harder to replace. This is an exciting night. Iâ€™m glad to be on cable. The truth is, Iâ€™ve dreamed of being a talk show host on basic cable ever since I was 46."
Conan continued, â€œA lotâ€™s happened in the news since I went off the air â€” and I was hoping I could cover it all in one joke. But then I realized thatâ€™s like trying to keep an Icelandic volcano from wearing Lady Gagaâ€™s meat dress while a trapped Chilean miner cleans up the BP oil spillâ€¦Brett Favreâ€™s p*nis.â€ Immediately after this we got a peek at the infamous masturbating bear, and over the course of the rest of the show Conan chatted with guests Seth Rogen, Glee's Lea Michelle and he even jammed with musician Jack White. Take that, Jay Leno!
Can't wait to see what kind of numbers the red-headed comedian brought in tonight. Did you guys love it as much as we did?
