To watch tonight: Late Night with Conan O’Brien THE FINAL EPISODE

Tonight marks the final episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien.  On June 1, he’ll take over for Jay Leno in the 11:30 pm slot as the host of the Tonight Show.  Jimmy Fallon takes the reigns for Late Night starting March 2nd. 

 



In addition to tonight’s episode, I recommend watching all the episodes from the past two weeks on Hulu.  Every episode showed one of the hilarious on-location segments that Conan was famous for, along with various other highlights and best-of moments.

As a fan of late night television programming since I was a child (and no, I wasn’t just staying up to watch Real Sex on HBO…ok maybe I was), Conan’s 12:30 show was always something to look forward to.  I remember some of his early years being pretty rough, but once he found his groove, he was hard to top.  Over the past 10 years, I’d argue Conan’s show was more consistently funny than either Leno or Letterman’s 11:30 offerings.

As much as I enjoy Craig Ferguson, I’m afraid 12:30 in the morning will never quite be the same without Conan O’Brien.
