    Has that guy been relevant? Funny? News worthy? The guy dropped off the planet. His ratings must be in the shitter.

    Pretty much. He's getting paid A LOT though. And there seems to still be a hardcore cult following. even within Holkywood.

    I don't watch and I was always a big fan. Jay was unwatchable, but Conan had a goddamn masturbating bear. It was good stuff.

    You can tell most of his writers didn't go to TBS with him because his show sucks now. His monologue used to be the funniest one of all the late night shows.

    Monologue isn't great, skits are usually good, interviews are good, depending on the guest.

    He always claps his hands during his monologue. It's annoying as fuck

    His ratings were shitty on NBC when he took over the tonight show. That's why they had to bring Leno back. Who knows what his ratings are on TBS. I never watch the channel personally.

    I haven't watched hardly any episodes since he moved, but the shoots from remote locations I've seen on Youtube are still funny as fuck.

    I think he's much better on TBS than he was on NBC. He has a little more freedom. It also may just be because I only watch him once in a blue moon. He's on when the news starts here and I always try to watch the news. It's weird that he used to interact with the band a lot when he wa on NBC. Now he hardly even acknowledges them. La Bumba used to kind of be his fall guy. When he came to Dallas his shows sold out. I tried to get tickets and couldn't.

    His ratings aren't anything compared to the three big late night talk show hosts, but for tbs they are good which is why he keeps getting renewed.

    He's the best of all of them by far. Seth Myers is fucking painful to watch as is the new Late Night Aussie.
