Conan Highlights

I’m still mad at Conan for creating the web series “Conan After-Hours.” But I’m a professional, and as a professional I will continue to review his show objectively.

Here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Conan:

Olympic organizers are reportedly struggling to fill rows and rows of empty seats. In fact, yesterday officials put out a casting call asking for two hundred Europeans or eight Americans.

Mitt Romney’s campaign still trying to do damage control after remarks Romney made while in the UK. Probably Romney’s worst gaffe was when he visited Buckingham Palace and said to Queen Elizabeth, “You call this a house?”

Today a blackout in India left 370 million people without power. And that was just on one block.

Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, donated 2.5 million dollars to support the legalization of gay marriage. Yeah, he’s serious about this. In fact, today, I was on Amazon, and no matter what I tried to buy it said: you might also like men.

The comedy segment was Fresno’s mayor accepting Conan’s help. It was pretty goofy:

Colin Farrel was the first couch guest. He’s in the new film Total Recall. The interview was really good. Colin was his normally twisted and funny self. It seemed to me that he was doing his best to restrain himself from being a lot more vulgar. The interview is worth watching, I just wish they hadn’t cut it up into three parts. It takes away from some of the momentum:

Angie Harmon was the second couch guest. She is one of the stars of the show Rizzoli & Isles. The interview was terrific. Angie was about as awesome as any late-night guest I’ve ever seen. She and Conan had a fantastic time together and it was a ton of fun to watch. Here’s the interview:

Thenewno2 was the musical guest. They were great:

An almost flawless show that I’m giving bonus points for airing the same day it was taped, as opposed to the Late Show and the Late Late Show which taped Monday’s show last week, and the Tonight Show, which didn’t tape anything at all.  I give it:
