Since, Conan O’Brian took over the late night seat from Jay Leno at the “Tonight Show”, I have wondered how the two 11:30pm nighthawks of late night talk, would actually fare in the ratings match?
Letterman in my opinion has been scoring some hardcore political talk from the Sara Palin camp for an off the walk joke he made last week on his show and vise versa from the Palin camp in retribution – whoa, heavy stuff! However, O’Brian still new as a transplant New Yorker, he did a show last week, that included a fight stunt and he stated that he’d could be killed doing the stunt itself, even under professional stunt supervision.
…, Now, that make me wonder? Is O’brian serious about late night talk or is he trying to bring his carbon style New York Pizza talk to Los Angeles with more grunt from New York?
Perhaps, if Conan O’Brian wants to succeed in Los Angeles, he needs to build a ratings contender that will stay ontop of the late night ratings game for many months, otherwise, Letterman could sneek up behind Cony Island and give a smirkin cork to the New York transplant!
