Conan O'Brien on The Tonight Show: "Jon and Kate Gosselin of Jon and Kate Plus 8 celebrated their 100th episode by having celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse over to cook dinner. Things got a little tense when Kate asked Emeril how to make chicken catchatori, and Jon asked Emeril how to make a b***h shut up."

In a move that caught a lot of people by surprise, NBC has canceled The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien after only one week.
NBC President of West Coast Operations Gregory K. Quickowitz said that the premier show had a 7.1 rating. The next shows all showed definite declines in viewership. The numbers were 5.0, 4.3, 3.8, and 3.5.
Quickowitz said that at that rate in two weeks the only people who would be watching would be Matt and Hester Sockbasket, O'Briens aunt and uncle who live in Dubuque, Iowa, and 93-year-old Bitter Creek, Wyoming insomniac Luther Gene Bokipper.
A long time Tonight Show employee said that it was truly sad to see O'Brien out in the Tonight Show parking lot begging people to come inside and see the show.
NBC has stated that they hope to develop another late night show hopefully around someone who can generate more of a viewing audience like Lindsay Lohan, Meghan McCain, or Andy Dick.
I'm a huge fan of O'Brien but I gotta hand it to Abel Rodriguez for the Grade A mocking of the new Tonight Show host.
Conan addresses the internet rumors that the new Tonight Show set is actually based on the old Nintendo videogame Super Mario Bros!
