Night Watch

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

advantage: draw

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.

    I saw Keyshawn fill in for Jim Rome on "Rome is Burning" the other day and he did a nice job.

    I once saw an "Iron Chef America" with Bone Crusher as a judge. His intro was something like "He loves turkey wings … ladies and gentlemen, BONE CRUSHER!"
