Talk-show tango: Feb. 16-20

In television on 02/16/2009 at 11:20 am

Countdown to Conan O’Brien’s exit from Late Night — his last show is Friday — ending a 16-year stint that began when he replaced David Letterman, when he moved to the Late Show. The backroom shenanigans involved in that shuffle were thoroughly covered by the New York Times’ Bill Carter in his book The Late Shift. Will this late-night game of Bingo! warrant the same kind of speculation? The Associated Press had a quick chat with O’Brien, who says he’s in denial but is putting on a brave face about the radical change to come, his desire to stay true to his silly and sometimes radical comedy.
