Don’t Expect Any Leftover Tonight Show Bits on Conan

Andy Richter on whether or not they have some more racy material saved up from The Tonight Show that they couldn’t use on NBC that they’re bringing to TBS with tonight’s premiere of Conan:

You have to understand that when you are doing a show like this, you don’t come up with a bunch of ideas that you can’t use. You know what I mean? You don’t go to a lot of trouble to produce something and put something on the air that you don’t think is going to be appropriate. Because it’s a fairly self-regulating machine. We are not kids. We are not trying to mess with the man or anything. We know what is appropriate. So no, not really. Maybe there is some stuff that the writers had stockpiled. For some reason it did not seem funny at the time and now it seems funnier. That could be but there is no official policy.
