"Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." [Mar. 3rd, 2009|01:30 am]
[Current Location |Detroit, MI, USA]
[Special Music |Van Morrison on Jimmy's show.]

The good news: There is no good news.

The neutral news: Robert DeNiro was his first guest.

The bad news: NBC gave Conan O'Brien forever to perfect his show.

Thinking back, I think it's amazing that conan lasted even past the 1st season, not this long. He was amazingly stiff, sort of a why the fuck did they let this guy on tv sort of thing. i can't imagine nbc giving him so long to get his shit together now, not with 500 channels.

Yeah, indeed.

The only thing I think that saved him ... WAS that he was on NBC. They run with shit the longest. If they didn't do that, shows like "Seinfeld" woulda been canned ... they're the opposite of the other three networks, especially Fox.

Compared to like, Chevy Chase, or Magic Johnson, man, Conan wasn't too bad in his badness back then. That might have also helped ... the fresher memories of the other failures.

I can't imagine NBC giving Jimmy so long to get his shit together, for real.
