Conan O’Brien poked fun at the New England Patriots on Thursday night following what football fans are calling “Deflategate.”— and in the middle of the managed, he managed to throw in a serious jab at Bill Cosby.

While Marcel the Shell may have a tiny voice, the little snail has, as Conan calls it, “big lungs.” READ FULL STORY
Remember when Nick Offerman went on Conan and joked about how everyone should start communicating using emojis, even when they’re having a face-to-face discussion? Well, he was only partly joking.
Conan has teamed up with Tilt.com to actually create facsimiles of Offerman’s giant emojis. So far, 100 prototypes have been made, with proceeds going to the Children’s Defense Fund. The bad news? The first batch already sold out at $100 an emoji. The good news? There’s another batch on the way. You can find them here, and then quit emoting all together.
Billy Eichner really loves Taylor Swift, mostly because her music gets to the heart of the critical issue of our time: What to do when a boy doesn’t text you back.
So to honor Swift, Eichner wrote her a song that he’d like her to record. But for now, we’ll have to settle for his rendition, which he performed last night on Conan. The song is called “Glitter and Ribs,” and contains lyrics about making out in bibs and well, this: “You’ll never know my heart like my heart knows my heart.”
Your move, Taylor.
Dax Shepard went into some Magic Mike mode to prepare for his nude scene in This Is Where I Leave You.
Last night, Conan O’Brien followed in Jimmy Fallon’s footsteps and took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which was designed to spread the word about ALS. Those who perform the challenge can then challenge someone else. If the person challenged doesn’t complete it in 24 hours, they have to donate $100 to ALS.
Only someone didn’t fully explain that to O’Brien. After trying to fake his way through the challenge to earn $100 bucks, O’Brien was in for a rude awakening when he realized that not only was he was supposed to donate the money, but a real bucket of ice water was waiting for him. After the traumatic experience, a very cold O’Brien passed the challenge on to Jimmy Carter, Pelé, and Haley Joel Osment. So I guess we’ll see how that goes.
Monday’s episode of Conan ended on an unusually somber note. The cause: During the course of taping that evening’s show, Conan O’Brien, Andy Richter, and their guest Will Arnett got word of Robin Williams’ unexpected death.
“We tape these shows a few hours early, and by the time you see this now on TV, I’m sure that you’ll know. I’m sorry to anybody in our studio audience that I’m breaking this news—this is absolutely shocking and horrifying, and so upsetting on every level,” a visibly shaken O’Brien explained at the end of the show.
He and his cohort then took an opportunity to briefly salute their comrade. The most moving words came from Arnett, who worked with Williams in the 2006 film RV.
“As funny as he was—he’s truly one of the all-time greats—he was even better as a person,” the Arrested Development star said. “He was even more fantastic—just the loveliest, sweetest, one of the kindest guys that I’ve ever worked with. Just such a soft, warm, emotionally sweet guy, and it’s a major, major loss for everybody.” READ FULL STORY
On Monday night, the cast of Orange Is the New Black went on its first-ever late-night appearance as a group when stars Kate Mulgrew, Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Biggs, Laverne Cox, and Lea DeLaria joined Conan O’Brien to talk about their hit Netflix show.
Perhaps the highlight of their appearance was Aduba revealing the secret to Crazy Eyes’ signature facial expression. But when she tried to talk O’Brien through the process of making his eyes pop like Aduba’s do on the show, he looked less crazy and more creepy and confused.
