Yeah... How did that compare with his regular show? The April Fools "joke" was uncomfortably bad.

Sometimes the "tour" shows are good, but usually I find them less entertaining overall than the regular nightly one.

Though his monologues are very uneven, Wednesday's one was actually funny. Bill Tully's Tax Tips was also pretty good and LaBamba's totally unrehearsed Game of Thrones update had me in stitches.

Though the gags are sometimes flat, I always love seeing Bill Tull's (whatever) Tips. The La Bamba unrehearsed bits are always funny too.

I miss Max and Joel Goddard.

As much a Conan fan as anyone but it's clear his TBS content isn't as good as his heyday at Late Night. That was downright hilarious television. Part of it is likely due to the loss of the two mentioned above, they were very important sidekicks to the show.

I have no doubt they really are unrehearsed:

Pender

La Bamba and Pender are funny but they're not Max and Joel. The show really took a huge hit when those two left.

Lots of great interviews lately, IMO.

Jeff Goldblum is the best guest I've ever seen. He's a riot.

Deon Cole is my favourite... whenever he comes on TV I know I am going to laugh really hard, well him and Triumph of course.

It's been said, but fantastic interview. Goldblums personality doesn't really work with Conan, but the honestly made everything that much more entertaining. Everything was on the fly and on the spot. Just genuine comedy. Loved it. Conan has had some real good shows of late. The segment about product placement had me gasping for air I was laughing so hard.

Tig Notaro coming after Goldblum was just the icing on the cake on Wednesday's show. She does the oddest stuff that somehow manages to work.

Conan destroyed it at the Correspondent's Dinner yesterday. Been a while since he's cracked me up like this.

I don't get it. Deon Cole is almost never funny. I don't know what I'm missing here. It's like he sucks all the funny off the screen.

I did like this:

Amy Schumer on Monday's show...

Ke$ha on Tuesday, she makes a great guest on Conan, so crazy and somehow manages to come out really dirty (and somewhat hot). And that jacket.

Kesha is a waste of air and space. Not even Conan can save her.

Bill Tully's tips:

Ask your Mexican gardener to come in, tell him he's fired - BOOM! Mexican independence.

If it gets him off Conan, that'd be fine by me
