There's major irony in NBC's humiliating late-night TV controversy:
By running off Conan O'Brien, NBC has provided the comic with his best material in years. As a result, his ratings are rising and his popularity is soaring... just as he's about to leave the network. It's great.
Conan has held nothing back in his monologues and segments this week, letting his soon-to-be former bosses know exactly how he feels about their amateur handling of The Tonight Show. Last night, though, O'Brien let sidekick Andy Richter take the floor.
Richter stared into the camera and addressed the "TV industry" straight on, alerting it to his monetary woes as a result of (among other things), shelling out $400,000 on a Lutheran Bar Mitzvah for his nine-year old son.
Bottom line: Andy Richter really needs a job. Any job. Watch him hilariously plead for one below.
