Poll: What Did You Think Of The 'Conan' Premiere?

Conan premiered last night, you guys! And what did we get for all that anticipation? Well, the Masturbating Bear made an appearance, as did the grimy L.A. River. Conan O’Brien‘s first guests were Seth Rogen (who was adorably nervous), Lea Michelle (who was mostly likable!) and Jack White (who was just Jack White).

Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing! Conan’s brand of humor has always made himself the mode for delivering jokes.

Video: Conan Unveils New Name For TBS Show

Someone has locked Conan O’Brien in a small room to slowly grow crazier and crazier in order to tape this viral video announcing the name of his new TBS show (premiering Nov. 8th). Um, maybe a good tactic, though we don’t want CoCo to loose complete touch with reality. Also, he needs to lose that beard.
