Conan O'Brien Gets in One Last Zinger on Eve of LENO's Final Broadcast
TBS talk show host Conan O'Brien, who was famously ousted from his spot as host of THE TONIGHT SHOW by comedian Jay Leno, couldn't help but give his nemesis one last zinger on the eve of his retirement from the NBC late night talker.
"The Olympics start airing tonight on NBC. It's very cool," began O'Brien during last night's opening monologue. "That's right, NBC has the Olympics. It's a big deal. NBC will finally get to show somebody who is OK with passing the torch."
Following a brief pause for audience laughter, the comic confessed, "I allowed myself one, but it was a good one!"
Describing itself as a traditional late-night talk show, Conan draws its comedy from recent news stories, political figures and prominent celebrities, as well as aspects of the show itself. The show typically opens with a monologue from Conan O'Brien relating to recent headlines and frequently features exchanges with his sidekick, Andy Richter, and members of the audience.
The next segment is devoted to a celebrity interview, with guests ranging from actors and musicians to media personalities and political figures. The show then closes with either a musical or comedy performance.
