Conan Doin Late Night Again

Our favorite funny man will be returning to his late night throne. We here at Doin Work have a special connection to Conando, because he is our generation’s best late night show host. Conan O’Brien has agreed to terms with TBS, and will be starting his late night show in November at the 11:00PM slot. This will move George Lopez’s show to midnight. Make what you want out of him pushing someone back a timeslot after he had the same thing happen to him, and caused a huge uproar, but in my eyes Conan can do no wrong. Most had predicted he would go to Fox, but he ended up going to TBS. Lopez welcomed him to the network last night on his show saying that he would happily move time slots to accommodate Conan, and that they would be the best late night duo out there in a pretty weak list of options. Personally, I thought wherever Conan landed he would instantly give the station he went to the best late night show. I’ve been a huge fan of his for the past decade, and probably watched late night TV two or three times a week when he was on. Now I’d rather just watch a rerun of Family Guy or The Office, so it will good be good to have a little Coco back in my life next winter. Conan had this to say about getting the new show, “In three months I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theater, and now I’m headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly.”  

I can’t say the Lopez Show really piqued my interest at any point in its existence, so moving it back an hour won’t be making me stay up any later to watch it. I’m not a fan of George’s comedy, but I do like him as a person. He used to come into my old workplace a lot (Pebble Beach) and would hand out money to people, and make fun of my bosses. He once tried to give me $100 for giving him a ride up to his car after his round. I told him it wasn’t necessary, and he said everyone has to eat, so I accepted. At the AT&T Pro-Am tournament he regularly throws wads of $20’s into the crowd making it rain on the 18th green before he posts his scorecard. The guy is plain unselfish, and is the kind of guy that wouldn’t mind giving the spotlight away to Conan.

    It’ll be good for O’Brien to get back in the saddle as they say. But in terms of the late night talk show hosts. None of them are particularly funny or all that creative to begin with ! They’re all droll and banal !

    God I miss Arsenio Hall ! Now “he was as funny as hell ! Especially when he had on the likes of Paul Mooney !

    Character issues asides Parells had to have been pushed to OK this deal . Brandon Marshall gets traded to the Dolphins and then they pick up and offer him a 4 yr $47 million deal with $29 million guaranteed in the first three years ? What the hell ?

    Dolphins send Broncos two picks for Marshall, give him extension

    NFL.com Wire Reports

    Bill Parcells, who knows a thing or two about talented,
    temperamental receivers, decided Brandon Marshall is worth the trouble for the Miami Dolphins.

    Parcells also decided Marshall is worth two second-round draft picks — and a contract extension that makes him one of the NFL’s best-paid pass catchers.

    The Dolphins acquired the high-maintenance Pro Bowl wideout from the Denver Broncos on Wednesday in exchange for a second-round pick (43rd overall) in next week’s draft and another selection next year. Marshall then flew to Miami and signed a four-year extension worth $47.5 million, with $29 million coming in the first three years, a league source told NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora

    There’s a sucker born every minute as they say but Parcells must’ve been inebriated here to agree to this deal !
