Why So Serious, Conan O’Brien?

“This is my dream job: To sit and get to talk to people like you…as the host of the Tonight Show,” is the entire quote. Who do you think he’s talking to with that uncharacteristically earnest tone? Maybe it was one of his recent guests like Punk’d’s Dax Shepard or MMA champ Ronda Rousey? As Huffpo accurately points out the whole thing feels a bit like Charlie Rose mixed with Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show and Alec Baldwin’s Here’s The Thing podcast. The video says Serious Jibber-Jabber starts in September, which is the current month we are inhabiting, so we’ll keep you posted whenever he gets that 75-minute Dax interview up there. (“First question: ‘Dax?’ Is that a biblical name?”)
