"Just What Conan O'Brien Needed: A big, Abe Vigoda-blessed sendoff. Overnight ratings for O'Brien's final Late Night were up a whopping 44 percent over the show's season average, NBC said today." [E Online]

"O'Brien took a sledgehammer and ax to his stage set this week, giving fans souvenirs. On his last show, taped Friday evening and aired at 12:35 a.m. ET, a construction vehicle was used to tear down a pillar of lights, which was cut up offstage." [AP]

""We're going on to this next gig, and sometimes I read that it's time for Conan to grow up because he's going to 11:30, and I assure you, that's just not going to happen," O'Brien said, to cheers from the studio audience. "I can't, this is who I am, for better or for worse."" [Variety]

Watch the whole episode at NBC's site.

"That Conan episode is the funniest shit ever."

You are a complete idiot and you probably think SNL is totally hilarious every week.

Conan is just not that funny. He is still as awkward as he was when he first started. Oh yes Abe Vigoda being let out of a cage. HILARIOUS OMG AHAHAHAHAHAH. Hacking away pieces of a stage set to give to the audience. OHHH MY SIDES ARE SPLITTING WITH LAUGHTER.

Conan has always been the perfect show for hipster morons who wrongly think they are so much smarter and funnier then everyone else.

As someone said in a post last night, Letterman is gonna wipe the floor with Conan.

6:53 here.

I want to say a big thank you to the dummies making those comments,after mine, about Conan as well as toward myself.
Proved my point about what dipshits Conan fans are.

Oh and may I remind you morons one little thing on his move to 11:30

In the last year Conan was just barely beating and many times getting beat in the ratings by Craig Ferguson

CRAIG FERGUSON!!!! Hahahahahaha NOW that's funny.
