So far, I've enjoyed watching his show.  I've always liked him on Late Late Night but I don't think his particular sense of humor will translate consistently well with the typical Late Night crowd.  Last night's Look into the Future was really only funny to those who watched it when he and Andy did it on the Late Late Show.  I thought it was hysterical.

Anyway, what do you think?

I love Conan's sense of zany, madcap (and self deprecating) sense of humor but worry it won't translate well to the more earlier, touristy crowd he'll be performing for now.  But I'm glad he's on a little more earlier now.

I preferred Jay's more political monologues.

I love the set and its throwback to the Carson era. Jay just annoyed me and I am so sad to hear he will be back in a 10pm slot (I don't he will last a year). I like Conan's sense of humor and I think he speaks to my generation. So far I have just been able to catch the opening monologue once and liked what I saw. I am hoping to watch the entire show tonight so I will have a better opinion tomorrow.

Isn't that (i.e. Hulu) an evil plot to destroy the world?  Should Orthodox Christians be a part of that? Grin
