If you search “Watch Conan” on Google, the website for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show is the first result. See for yourself.
This could be a simple mistake, right? Maybe the web team just changed the name on the header of the website when the two hosts swapped places. But we here at PopWatch like conspiracy theories. After all, the search term “Conan Obrien” returns Leno’s site as the third result, and the search term “Conan O’Brien” returns it as the sixth. Is NBC holding onto O’Brien’s web traffic and characters?
PopWatchers, what do you think is going on here? Does Google’s search algorithm have a sense of irony?
Ken Tucker points out it was as underwhelming as it was pleasant. It remains to be seen how O’Brien will distinguish himself from his rivals, old and new, but for one night, at least, Team Coco and TBS were the center of the entertainment universe.Ladies and gentleman, our long national nightmare is over. After more than nine months in the wilderness — and by wilderness, I mean everywhere but late-night TV — Conan O’Brien is back on the air. Last night’s premiere on TBS was classic Conan, though

Conan O'Brien prepares for tonight's premiere in new American Express commercial: Every detail counts
In case you haven’t been keeping track, it has been nine and a half long months since we last watched Conan O’Brien from the comfort of our own sofa and footie pajamas. After his fallout with NBC — and the endless promotion of his new show Conan from TBS — it’s understandable that O’Brien wants everything about tonight’s premiere to be just perfect. Ever the true team player, Coco is not above carrying out the most minute details himself, even if that means getting his pretty white pants a little dirty. (White after Labor Day? For shame, Coco.) After the jump, watch Sir Conan, man of the people, travel to India to haggle with fabric sellers and trade gossip with local women in a new ad for American Express. Considering tonight’s first guest might be the curator of a nutcracker museum, this doesn’t seem too far off from what we can expect from the new Conan, right? READ FULL STORY

1. ”There may be a cash giveaway. And I repeat may.”
2. “Late in the first show, I’m choosing a second wife — someone who’s independently very wealthy, so if I go through this kind of bulls— again, I’m really well taken care of. I mean, I’m talking about someone with hundreds of millions of dollars, because then I’ll really walk the walk.”
3. “You’ll get to see whether I kept the beard or not. And I don’t think I’m self-centered, but I think it’s more important to America than this election.” READ FULL STORY
Revving up for the debut of his new TBS show on Monday, Conan O’Brien made a surprise visit to George Lopez — the guy whose time slot he’ll be taking next week. “It’s thrilling, basic cable,” said O’Brien, before requesting to switch the conversation to a different language. “I don’t know if people are aware of this, but Spanish is my native tongue,” O’Brien declared. Next thing you know, he’s launching into an translator’s nightmare of bungled phrases. “Yes. I have many shoes,” he trilled in lovely sounding Spanish. “And we hope that the boat has more dog eyes in the future.”
The two then switched to German for more lines of goofy nonsense, wrapping up just in time for a band of mariachi guitarists and alpine-looking tuba players. What all this has to do with Conan’s new show, we’ve got no idea. But it was pretty funny. Check it out below, and then sound off in the comments: Are you excited for Conan’s new gig on TBS?

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How are you feeling as you prepare for your return to TV? Nervous? Nauseated? Tingling sensation?
CONAN O’BRIEN: Highly medicated. I’m on something that they use to euthanize racehorses when they break a leg. I walk around with an IV bag full of this stuff, so it’s going to be a different Conan that people see. It’s going to be a Conan that really has trouble moving, and shows very few facial expressions.
What can fans expect from the TBS version of a Conan talk show?
This is the show that someone does after they’ve survived a serious car accident. There’s a little bit of — and I think in a good way — a “let’s just go for it” kind of feel. I’ve been doing one show or another for about 17 years, and then you have this razor’s edge nine months that I’ve had recently and you think about things a little differently. So, there’s more of a feeling of “Screw it, I’m not going to second-guess anything” and “If it makes me laugh, I’m just going to go for it.” And that, I think, is going to serve me well for about 3 months.
