I wonder if he will retire the Masturbating Bear or Horny Manatee.

I remember where I was and what I was doing the last night Andy was on the show. I actually shed a tear.

Jay Leno's show was not originally his show; he took over for Johnny Carson who took over the show from others. Conan is not taking "his" show and moving into that spot he is taking over the Tonight Show just as others have done. The tonight show is not "his" show and shouldn't be, he should try and carry on the traditions of the show if he wants to do "his" show he should have kept "his" show. Now obviously he will have his influence but he is not just moving his show to another time slot.

I so agree. I like conan enuf for sure, but the tonight show is the tonight show... and dumb old carson should have never shosen (or maybe the network chose) that Doritos moron...

I believe NBC chose Leno...Johnny Carson wanted Letterman to take over.

(I still miss Johnny.)

But I think I'll like Conan better than Leno, although I think Letterman is still king, even toned-down.

Conan is, was, and will always be a hysterical writer. He had no trouble keeping up during the strike. I think many people forget that he was one of the writers for SNL for many years. I think that he will make a great host on the Tonight Show. Sure, the Masterbating Bear has likely gone into permanent hibernation, but I think a character like Triumph would fit with the Tonight Show standard given today's community acceptance level.

Will it be different, sure. But over time, this will become Conan's show, just like Jay Leno took time to make it his.
