I'll try not to write too much about Conan, since he's pretty much dominated this spot the last 2 weeks, but I'd be remiss if I didn't talk about his final Tonight Show just a little bit. Even if you're not a fan of his style of writing and performing, you have to admit (okay, maybe not everyone, but most do) that his final show was a spectacular hour of television.
First of all, I hope you all checked out Kevin Pollak's Chat Show last night (or at least the embedded Rob Corddry interview in last week's listings). If you haven't yet, you're seriously missing out on some funny an interesting conversation.
Last week was also, of course, the first week of the new Jay Leno Show.
This week marks the debut of the "primetime talk show", when NBC brings us The Jay Leno Show at 10/9c every week day. The former Tonight Show host will be competing with the CSIs of the world for ratings, as well as keeping 5 hours of potential scripted television off the air.
Sorry for taking a few weeks off there. A combination of being out of town, and a week of all repeats, kept me from posting.
I'm out of town this week, so there won't really be explanations for my Top 5 picks (but don't worry, they're still below).
With Jay Leno ending his 17-year run as host of The Tonight Show on Friday to huge numbers, Conan O'Brien officially takes over the reins this week. It should come as no surprise that we're huge Conan O'Brien fans here at ShowbizMonkeys.com, specifically me.
There's been quite a break since I last posted the late night line-ups on ShowbizMonkeys.com, but I hope to keep this up regularly from now on.
