Everything's bigger in Texas -- including televised embarrassment. Conan O'Brien has decamped his entire show to Dallas for the week, and although he's been busy personally experiencing all kinds of fun things, from getting deputized to learning the ins and outs of Mary Kay product sales, he's also made room for his staff to have some fun, too!
"He's the sexiest motherf**cker alive!"
Do you have a 'Portlandia' fan in your life that's hard to buy for? Perhaps you've already purchased them every bird-adorned item you could possible find? 'Portlandia' stars and creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have just the ticket for you -- it's a "hands on" and "do it yourself art book," and it will teach the people you love to crowd fund their baby, escape the boredom of rain, and stop conversations before they even start.
Conan O'Brien is worried about BuzzFeed -- specifically, he's worried about the quality of their trademark lists as of late. Sure, they're still exploring some classic topics, from Zac Efron to dogs to Legos, but there just seems to be something a bit troublesome about their recent list-making attempts.
Longtime 'Jeopardy' host Alex Trebek has a way with words ... or, at least, as Conan O'Brien imagines it, he has a way with saying his words. Trebek's consistent cadence makes it incredibly easy for Conan to splice together the game-show host's clues into a parody video of absolute gibberish, accompanied by a pack of slack-jawed contestants. Funny, right?
If Conan O'Brien's dedication to even just announcing that he will be hosting the 2014 MTV Movie Awards (a "lifelong dream," he screams) on last night's 'Conan' is any indication to what kind of pep he'll bring to the final show, well, audience members might want to clear the front row at the upcoming ceremony.
John Travolta's (Jorm Tracoola's?) Oscar night butchering of Idina Menzel's name into "Adele Dazeem" as he introduced the singer's performance of Best Song winner "Let It Go" has already become its own Internet meme and a cherished memory of everyone who loves to laugh at award shows. That's why it's such good news that Conan O'Brien managed to find the real Adele Dazeem so that she could get the recognition she deserves on 'Conan' Monday night.
"I know, why can't we get a distortion pedal with a true bypass?"
All Conan O'Brien wanted to do last night on 'Conan' was chat about the end of the Sochi Olympics and its final medal count, but that relatively simple plan was derailed by some inept sound guys who were too busy chatting over the show's live feed about, well, their ineptitude to let Conan and Andy Richter rehash the winter sports spectacular.
