Sucks to be Conan

In television on 02/11/2009 at 10:02 pm

So first the poor schlub Late Night host actually believes NBC when it says it is crowning him the new Tonight Show host. Then NBC is revealed to be only technically good for its word. Because while O’Brien will indeed take over as Tonight Show host on June 1, he will once again be following Jay Leno, to whom NBC made a gift of the prime-time weeknight hour of 10 p.m.

And then he invited former SNL comic Norm Macdonald onto the show Tuesday night. And got handed his pride. The video seems to be a little tough to find — unless you’re clever enough to have one of those Canadian IP workarounds. But the good people at tvsquad.com have the important details.

Anyone else who saw the interview or has a Canada-friendly link, please share.

Conan O’Brien hosts his last Late Show next Friday, on Feb. 20, at 12:35 a.m. Jimmy Fallon, who’s been hosting a webcast in preparation for taking over Late Night on March 2, guests tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 11) on Late Show.
