That’s the best analysis of the whole boondoggle I’ve ever seen. Ken Burns is a national treasure! ;)
Plus it makes you thankful that Zucker isn’t the commander in a real shooting war.
Now that Conan has lost his iconic Masturbating Bear, it’s only fitting that he create a new character, the Masturbating Peacock.
Wow! The most overused device for a comedy bit and STILL not funny. Shocker!
Haha, this is great. Kimmel somehow got funnier and emerges as one of the winners from the Late Night debacle.
not funny, not clever and not kiss-assey enough to stop conan from coming to abc and replacing you jimmy. maybe you should start banging sarah silverman again — you were so much funnier then.
This is brilliant. Watch Kimmel become the unexpected victor of this Late Night debacle.
That was the best explanation and analysis of this entire episode to date. Maybe I’ll have to start watching Kimmel….
Law of unintended consequences: Jay v. Conan makes Kimmel actually funny.
Kimmel is the big winner in this, Leno the big loser.
BTW, in 2004 Jay said he was looking forward to retirement to spend more time with his wife. WTF?
I believe a photo of Jay and Mavis together would fetch more from the tabloids than a picture of Tiger Woods.
Most rare and valuable of all – a pic of Zucker or Gaspin making a good decision.
He already is, Letterman and Leno are on the other side of the curve and Jimmy is the only credible guy left standing… The loss of Conan was unexpected and tragic for everyone but Kimmel…
I don’t hate Leno (and it’s probably just me, but I’ve never gotten why some people do), but this is good. Mainly because I hate those pointless PBS Ken Burns docs. Good for Jimmy.
Sucked. Boring and not funny. Next.
you clearly have no clue who the fuck Ken Burns is…I think you need to stay in more
If only Zucker were reading “Running a Network for Dummies.” I’m going to hazard a guess to say that he thinks he can get by without it.
Actually, he *should* read it. Even the dummies of the world feel superior to the dumbass that is the Zucker.
huh? wheres the funny? it was longer than Conan was the host of the tonight show and not one solid joke. my 8 year old can paste heads on civil war soldiers.
ugh. such shit.
You have no soul…I’m sorry
Jimmy is very good, but is hampered by the later start time. I think Dave will clean up without any real competition at 11:35 for 5 weeks…..
ugh. ken burns. there’s a topical reference.
this is getting dull.
I agree. Hopefully he will have “Jay” guest host on the night that Leno returns. His “LENO” left me in tears laughing hysterically.
I gotta disagree with the “kimmel wins from this” sentiment. His show is shit. He’s shit. If anything he’s finally gonna be exposed as the luckiest zero talent in the world. It’s over for kimmel. And good riddance. The guy is hard to look at.
OMG, that’s so funny! Thanks for posting it. I may have to switch to Kimmel’s show more often.
Pure Gold!!! hahahahahaha
I’ve probably seen a Ken Burns doc parody on every comedy show, I think since the civil war! Shitbag Kimmel didn’t only steal the idea, he managed to make it worse, all while drafting off another network’s drama. Conan has used that fake-y documentary device like 700 times, Jon Stewart even more. Chris Rock did it too.
Don’t hate ME because Kimmel’s flat and unoriginal, hate him!
Very very very funny.
