Looks like TBS wants to change Conan's show somehow. Not enough viewers against The Daily show seems to be the big pull. Lots of talk of "other digital things" but mostly it looks like going to a weekly show maybe?
I haven't watched Conan O'Brien in some time, so I don't have a lot of input. I never really found him particularly funny anyway - but I know a lot of people do. Would this be upsetting to many? do we have some Conan heads here?
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I watched his TBS show daily for a while when it launched, but eventually pulled the pin. It just wasn't that funny, and he usually had lower-tier guests. And I got tired of his constant joking pawing at the female guests and his seeming inability to talk to them about anything other than how hot they are.
I've seen some funny clips from the show since, but not enough to make me go back to watching regularly, but at this point I can't imagine watching any late night show regularly.
Over the last several years now, Conan outside of his studio >>>> Conan inside his studio. It seems like Conan himself is tired of the standard late-night show routine, as whenever he's on the road either doing remote bits or simple doing the show from a different locale, it's 100% fresher and more enthusiastic.
George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.

I have nothing to add other than these are both really great points and make up the large part of the reason I stopped watching a while ago (better things to do makes up the last part). This change, whatever it is, is needed to break up the monotony of the show IMO. I most likely won't tune in immediately after the changes happen, but I do have a more open "wait and see" approach to the show now.
That's me with Sakai. He won so much that half the time I swear that the 3rd reviewer, the food critic, was sleeping with him. :-) I don't watch the network enough to feel strongly about anybody except the original Iron Chefs.
