Anyone see 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien' last night?

One of his show ID's, as the show came back from commercial, was a scene of two TIE fighter with Vader's ship flying by the 'death star' which was in the shape of Conan's head.

The show has more class than I thought........:D

I think it's doing pretty good since Andy Richter left.

If it was Andy I don't think the Emperor would have minded it being blown up.

te7: the technical term for those images is "bumper", as in the cushion between the comms & program content :) there's also another one with conan's face in place of 3po's, in a pic alongside r2 in the medal ceremony :)
conan joke the other night: "reportedly george lucas is putting a cameo of n'sync in episode 2 (audience boos loudly); it's said he's doing it so that c-3po will look less gay by comparison" :D
np: rupaul, "now prance"

Thanks for enhancing my vocabulary:)

I figured there had to be a TV term for that. I'm glad someone understood what I was saying!

And yes, I heard the n'sync joke, too :Pirate: arrgh!

Thanks again for the info!

if any of you punks happened to catch last thursday's Family Guy ep (u.s. primetime cartoon (http://www.fox.com/familyguy/index.html)), 3 baby birds were born in a beard daddy peter grew. he looked down and said "they're so lovable, they remind me of my kids", which was followed by the birds' heads being replaced one at a time by his kids heads. the first was son chris; second was football-headed infant stewy. but then peter had trouble bringing an image of his daughter meg to mind, so after a moment instead imagined BOBA FETT'S HELMET, at which point he uttered to himself, "cool!" :cool:
fetthelm coloring was blue-gray & mauve (sounds more jangoey?), and even had the dent :D

last friday he sent triumph (http://members.tripod.com/freefall67/id12.htm) the (http://popdirt.com/article.php?sid=101) insult (http://www.sheckymagazine.com/triumph.htm) comic (http://www.mavericktimes.com/triumph.html) dog (http://listen.to/Triumph/) to heckle fans lined up outside a manhattan theater to be the first to see AOTC :D some of the choicer jabs i recall:
(to a fan wearing a lotr costume): "seriously, have you ever talked to a woman without having to give her your credit card number?"
(to a husky fan): "look, it's some kind of super-nerd! you look like you were built in a laboratory out of parts from lesser nerds!"
(to a fan dressed as vader): "great impression, you sound just like him- but you're not breathing heavily enough; imagine you've just run ten feet" :D "which of those buttons on your chest calls your parents to come pick you up?"
(to a female fan): "look, an actual Girl is here! the male-female ratio here is pretty good for you eh? you can have your pick of all kinds of guys who have no idea how to please you!"
(to a pregnant fan): "you got a little future nerd in there? when is he due? just think, that's the last time he'll ever see female genitalia!"
(watching two fans get married in line): "and now the groom will kiss the bride, after years of practicing on his sister" :D "i wonder which video arcade they'll be spending their honeymoon in?"
(to all): may the force be with you. . . For Me To Poop On!!!"
now playing: the specials, "do the dog"

"hey look, they're giving out free star wars legos! now don't any of you do anything crazy with them, like say Giving Them To A Child!" :D
kevin pollak & conan the other night:
"did you see how yoda fought? so why does he need a cane??"
"it's part of some insurance scam!"
"(in yoda voice): 'backed into me you did, now injured i am'"

I remember that very special interview between geekdom and the insult dog. About the funniest piece of late night TV I've ever seen. I'd love to get that on tape and play it for all the people who'll be waiting on line for EP3.

There was a guy the dog puppet was totally ripping on in a Stormie suit. The guy took his helmet off and he looked like Colonel Sanders before he engorged himself on his KFC recipe.

mancan, I have that entire piece as a .wmv file that plays on your PC w/WinMediaPlayer. It's 17.6 MB. If you can accept a file attachment of that size via e-mail, I will be happy to send it to you.
Just let me know.....

SWAFMAN, I would love it. I will PM you my email address. If you don't mind, I haven't seen it yet. :D

never mind - I just got the e-mail error saying it was bounced.
I've sent you an informational e-mail.

The sad part is that Richter is not very funny by himself. It was the combo that made that show work. And actually I have always thought Conan was funny even without Andy, Andy just made it "funnier." But most of the show of what is funny is not Conan himself but all the skits and things that he presents on the show. That is always been the backbone of it, even when Andy was there. I'm not sure who does most of the writing and not sure if Conan is more of a figure head than the brains behind the operation, but whoever(s) is, would make ANY show a hit like this one.
