Conan apeals to a very limited market!! He bascially is NOT FUNNY!! Even Letterman, is marginally better to watch!! The real talented funnyman is JAY LENO!! NBC forced Jay to retire to accomodate Conan O'Brien... Big Mistake!! Costly Mistake!! I'd watch Conan if he was FUNNY!! he is NOT!!!!!

Yes -Conehead ain't much to watch. Neither was Cavett. If it wasn't for 105 channels he wouldnt be on!

Conan O'Brien is like the "Dick Cavett" of the 21st Century. Marginally talented....barely hangs on. Just can't break into the big leagues of late night showmanship....he's obviously not the No. 1 draw for that kind of evening entertainment. But, oh well, he soldier's on...TBS extended him. Still I wouldn't clamor to watch him!
