Late Night says goodbye to Conan

Here’s a link to the last video ever of Conan at the 12:30 AM spot. In a few months (June), he’ll be moving up to eleven thirty, where he’ll take over the world. And where will Jay go? Well, he’s all set up for a prime time show at ten PM with the same network. I predict a flop, though I’m willing to watch it and give it a chance before I pronounce judgment.

And who will NBC choose to replace Conan’s Late Night spot? Some comedian genius? A guy who at least looks promising? Nope, don’t be silly. Why wouldn’t you pick Jimmy Fallon? Yup, Jimmy Fallon. I’ve covered this before, but I still think this seems like an odd choice. The promos seem to be promoting a Conan-like silliness that Fallon will probably ape for a few seasons before he finally tries to find his own niche.

Or he could actually be good. We’ll just have to wait and see.
