Conan Keeps the NBC and Leno Zingers Coming

Conan Ricky Gervais might have said it best today at HBO’s portion of the TV Critics Assn. press tour.

“Conan was amazing,” said Gervais, who guested on “Tonight” Wednesday night to promote his “Golden Globes” hosting gig. “That monologue he did was one of the funniest, most biting I’ve seen on a chat show in years.”

There’s more where that came from. Here are selections from tonight’s “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” monologue:

Hi, I’m Conan O’Brien, NBC’s “Employee of the Month.”

There’s a rumor that NBC is so upset with me, they want to keep me off the air for 3 years.  My response to that is, if NBC doesn’t want people to see me, just leave me on NBC.


Time sure does fly. Do you realize that a baby born on the day we did our first “Tonight Show” is now a slightly larger baby?


This is absolutely true—I received a letter from the adult film company “Pink Visual” offering me a role in one of their porno movies.  In the movie I’d be having sex with a beautiful woman and just as we’re about to climax I get replaced by Jay Leno.


No matter what happens, it’s been a real honor to sit in the same chair as Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, and Jay Leno.
