I just wish we didn’t decide to tell him on April Fools’ Day.”

  5. Annette says:

    Good for Conan but I really can’t wait for Jimmy Fallon to take over Jay Leno’s time slot.

  6. CharmAttack says:

    Oh! Axe Cop is a late night show. Watching that clip I thought it would be on Sundays during the animation domination.Looks quite awful, but I am looking forward to Behind the Candelabra.

  7. Bob says:

    They extended Conan’s contract because they didn’t want him involved in any of the NBC ‘Tonight Show’ mess. Not that it’s possible, but in TVland, you just never know.
