After browsing episodes of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien on Hulu, methinks Conan should begin sending invitations to celebrities instead of questionnaires.
Last week, Conan's primary guests were: Howie Mandel, Samuel L. Jackson, Meredith Vieira, Larry King and Bob Newhart.
Surely the fuckin' Tonight Show can book more relevant guests.
Conan's guests this week, however, suggest otherwise.
A comparison with Letterman:
Monday, July 13
Letterman: Jonah Hill, Gar Ryness, Kelly Clarkson
Conan: Bill Engvall, the cast of Hair
advantage: Letterman. Batting Stance Guy alone > Engvall + Hair.
Letterman: Edie Falco, Michael Showalter, Wilco with Feist
Conan: Michael Phelps, Sugar Ray
advantage: Letterman. Michael Phelps and Sugar Ray?
Letterman: Paul McCartney
Conan: Dana Carvey, Kris Allen
advantage: Letterman. Way to counter-program an hour with Macca.
Letterman: Anderson Cooper, Anna Paquin, Grizzly Bear
Conan: Gerard Butler, Daughtry
advantage: Letterman. True Blood buzz > Ugly Truth buzz.
Letterman: Tom Arnold, Tommy Johnagin, Metric
Conan: Seth Green, Steven Ho, Demi Lovato
On Friday, July 24, the Trailer Park Boys Rob Wells, John Paul Tremblay and Mike Smith will be guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Not sure why…
Keyshawn Johnson and Patton Oswalt were judges on Sunday's episode of Iron Chef America.
Keyshawn is a tough judge.
