Conan: Day One

A couple of thoughts...

-Put Andy on the couch.

-I think maybe Conan realizes that "The Tonight Show" doesn't matter anymore. That's why he's basically doing the same show he did on Late Night an hour earlier and a continent away. What do I mean by saying "The Tonight Show" doesn't matter anymore? I mean that the brand doesn't matter. Inheriting Johnny Carson's tonight show mattered. A generation of comedians and broadcasters longed for it. That show and that era are long gone. Conan may be glad to have the earlier slot but I don't think he or anyone is going to care about inheriting the mantle of Jay Leno. Which is good since Jay packed his mantle and is taking it to 10pm.
