The Clip: Conan, “The War Horse Score Does NOT Deserve an Oscar”

Where You Can Stream It: YouTube

The Pitch: In the midst of the 2012 Oscar season, talk show host Conan O’Brien points out that the Steven Spielberg film War Horse was nominated for both Best Picture and Best Original Score. But when he played a clip from the film, the score did not sound like something composer John Williams would have come up with.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: Conan went off the air last week as his TBS series came to an end (don’t worry, he’ll be coming to HBO Max soon), which made me reflect on some of my favorite comedic bits of his during the show’s 11-year run. One clip immediately came to mind – but if I’m being honest, it didn’t have to travel very far to get there, since this thing has been hovering around the edge of my very consciousness every single day since it first aired. Check it out below. Read More »

What is Conan O'Brien Doing Next

Last night brought the final episode of Conan to TBS. The conclusion of the series also marks the end of comedian Conan O’Brien‘s tenure as a late night television host. After taking over Late Night on NBC in 1993, having an all-too-short stint hosting The Tonight Show, and taking his comedy over to TBS in 2010, the comedian will no longer be a staple of the late night circuit. But he will still be kicking around elsewhere with a variety of projects.  Read More »

Conan O'Brien Says Farewell - Conan Final Episode

Conan O’Brien‘s late night talk show Conan came to an end last night on TBS. The series has been on the air since 2010, with a total of 11 seasons comprised of over 1,500 episodes. But the comedian’s tenure in late night television goes back nearly 20 more years when he took his position at the desk of Late Night with Conan O’Brien on NBC in 1993. So the last episode of Conan isn’t just the end of his most recent show, but a farewell to his entire run as a late night host. It’s a big deal, and you can watch clips from the final Conan episode below. Read More »

Final Paul Rudd Mac and Me Clip

Paul Rudd is one of the most beloved guests Conan O’Brien has ever had across his slate of talk shows. From Late Night with Conan O’Brien through Conan on TBS, the actor is always a hit with fans. But it’s not just because Paul Rudd is one of the most lovable and funniest guys around Hollywood. It’s because Paul Rudd always brings the best clips with him when he visits Conan. Actually, it’s always the same clip from the movie Mac and Me, and as Conan is coming to an end, Paul Rudd had to bring that clip around once more for old time’s sake. Read More »
