Conan O'Brian is underrated. When David Letterman had his slot it seemed like he got a great deal of acclaim for the hipness of the show. After Letterman left for CBS I was among the many people who was sure that Conan would fail. Late night audiences are both quirky and fickle. It is really rare for a network to find a show that works in that time period so they tend to experiment. With Conan NBC managed to get it right in one try. I watch his show whenever I get a chance. He makes me laugh every time.
