Clip du Jour: Conan O'Brien's 'In the Year 2000' (David Duchovny edition)

Looking back at these "In the Year 2000" bits, it turns out Conan wasn’t much of a prognosticator. Though he did portend a certain something about recovering sex addict David Duchovny, who sat in for the segment embedded below, with the prediction that in the year 2000, "Women will lose interest in David Duchovny when it’s revealed that ‘Duchovny’ is the Russian word for syphilis."

Please note: David Duchovny does not have syphilis. That we know of.

    Wow. What an unnecessary dig against David Duchovny. Classy.

  • lynne3

    hahaha. that was hysterical!

  • jules

    Lighten up, Tom.

  • Scooter

    Yeah, Tom, this is so not an ‘unnecessary dig’ against Duchovny; it’s simply an example of Conan’s comedy genius at its finest. There’s no reason to be uptight about it when Duchovny’s in on the joke (note: he’s the guy next to Conan). Plus this happened well before the addiction/rehab situation even came to light.

  • Tom Brazelton

    I wasn’t criticizing Conan for making the Duchovny/syphilis joke. I was criticizing EW for exploiting it and recontextualizing it in relation to Duchovny’s treatment for sex addiction. If you’re going to make a joke at the guy’s expense, at least be timely! Dragging it back into public 6 months after it was first reported is what makes it unnecessary.

  • Joyce

    yes, lighten up tom

  • Karen

    this is a classic bit… years later, the Husband and I still refer to any STD and “Duchovny”.

  • sarah

    Leave David alone, he’s a good guy.

  • laura

    A whole lot of women, including me, have decidedly NOT lost interest in Duchovny!

  • lindsey

    wow. how low can you go, Mr Mike Bruno? I thought that EW was slowly losing it’s class, but this shot takes your magazine right down past basement level. EW should be ashamed of themselves for even allowing this guy to write for them.

  • Dustin

    At least David Duchovny is working on recovering from his problem, something I doubt you can do, Mr. Bruno. Unless there is rehab for rude and tasteless behavior.

  • Jeanne

    Are you the same Tom Brazelton that does Theater Hopper? If so, awesome.
    I totally agree, it’s kinda stupid to be bringing this up now (not to mention crass and not really amusing.) Way to be current Mike!

  • Marlene

    Wow that was disgusting. I’ve had an subscription to EW for many years. It is running out in a few weeks. Guess what……..I’m not going to renew.

  • sweetgirl

    David Duchovny is Hoooottt.
    Californication rules! I canĀ“t wait for the next season.
    DD is far away all your BS, dear MIKE, besides, there is no bad publicity Dave Duchovny is hotter now than years ago.

  • CowBeck

    I’m 17 and I do find Mr. Duchovny hot sexy and still decent I actually admire him for going to rehab.
    p.s. as if the world has gone saintly that no one watches porn…brother
