Whats the general concensus of his work on the show? Admittedly, I'm not really liking it. He doesn't seem to be very comfortable behind the desk, and I'm finding his accent to be a bit irritating.

And what is with that theme music?

Perhaps some more time and seasoning may be in order, but I dont think he's gonna topple Conan's show. Not in a million years.

Anyone care to comment?

I can't really fairly comment as I've only seen two or three episodes of his show. From what I saw, it wasn't anything special, but not really bad either. However, nothing that I'd give up watching Conan for.

Like you said, more time may be the answer. Remember that O'Brien was hated by critics at first and now is looking to take over the Tonight Show in a few years. I like Craig (really carried the Drew Carey show, IMO) and I'm sure he'll get better over time.

And I like the theme music... for some reason.

I've only seen it a few times (been a Conan fan since day one), but I liked the few I have seen. I dig the accent. Much like Conan and even Jimmy Kimmel, you've got to give him a little time to get into a groove (like a year), and then truly judge how good he is or not. Of course, most tv execs don't have that much patience.

How is he doing in the ratings? Better or worse than Kilby?

Paul Westerberg is taping a performance tonight that will be shown sometime in the future (supposedly), so I'll keep an eye out for that ep.

Right now, he seems to be at the level of Default Talk Show Host (at least he's not as bad as Tony Danza) in that his material (to me, at least) comes off as easy jokes that are only mildly interesting because of his accent. But throw me in the "give him time" category. Let him get comfortable and he'll be fine. Writing can be improved. Now, if he's still bleh with great material, that's all his problem.

As for the music, the line about blowing off work = comedy... well, not exactly gold... maybe copper?

Not sure about ratings, but he definitely isn't any WORSE than Craig Kilborn. And that's something to be thankful for, at least.

The last rating I can find was for 1/3/05. Conan, which was a rerun that night, scored a 2.4. Craig Ferguson, which was new, scored a 1.8.

I actually enjoy his show and watch it reguarly. I really liked his run as Mr. Wick in The Drew Carey Show.

I love the theme by the way. Very different.
