Watch Conan O’Brien get choked up while saying goodbye to his band

It’s the end of an era: Conan aired its last hour-long episode last night. I knew that Conan was going to move to a 30-minute format in January, but I didn’t realize the last hour-long show would air so soon. Here’s Conan getting choked up as he pays tribute to the show’s band, Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band, who has been with him for 25 years but will not be a part of the new format:


Here are the jokes you might have missed on last night’s The Good Place. Including this Parks and Rec easter egg. And here are all the celebrity names that Tahani has dropped. I heart this show.

How Murphy Brown‘s Sarah Huckabee Sanders cameo came to be in last night’s episode (spoiler! I guess!) and how it relates to the first iteration of the series.

This is an interesting and thoughtful piece on on-screen representation of minorities and how difficult it is to make comedy out of cultural anxiety.

Another original Buffy star is cool with the reboot. Haven’t y’all run out of cast members to ask about this yet?

There’s an episode of Big Mouth devoted to Planned Parenthood (which that clip I posted earlier this week came from), God bless them.

Here is a comprehensive list of HBO and Cinemax’s upcoming series, movies and documentaries for fall 2018 and beyond. That “and beyond” leaves a lot of ambiguity.

Steven Yeun doesn’t want a Glenn origin movie, thank you very much.

The wonderful Jessica Walter, along with Joe Morton, Joe Pantoliano, M. Emmet Walsh, James Cromwell, and Bruce Greenwood will receive the Carney Award for outstanding character actors. Elsewhere, Alan Alda is receiving the SAG Life Achievement award.

Janice Dickinson’s lawsuit against The Shahs of Sunset for making her look like an asshole has been thrown out by a judge.

FOX NEWS ALERT: iPhones have cameras in them. UNBELIEVABLE.

Time’s Up

Amy Schumer and a whole bunch of other women were arrested at a Kavanaugh protest yesterday at the Senate building. Thank you to all of them.

Meanwhile, the president claims that Schumer and her fellow protestors were paid by George Soros, of course.

Listen, President Bad Brain, I promise none of those signs were made “from love” but instead fury and outrage fueled by your stealing of the American presidency and staining it with your hate.


I’m just going to go watch this video on an endless loop until I can see straight again.

If you live in Texas, register to vote at, and remember that you have to mail your registration or deliver it in person to an appropriate location. To everyone who is not in Texas, you can still go here to register to vote, though be sure to check your state laws because motherfuckers don’t want you to vote and will do whatever they can to disenfranchise you. And if you are registered to vote, make sure you still are registered to vote. The last day to register in Texas is Tuesday, October 9. Early voting in Texas begins on October 22. For everyone else:

Election Day is November 6. 32 days to go.

M O O D!! I am a woman and i have been sexually assaulted more than once !! It was not my fault when i was 5, 6 12 , 13 , 15. – All by older men who i thought were safe ! I rarely have known safety and was always blamed for for the assaults and,my loudness , and curiosity. It’s taken in me almost 55 years to know how to advocate for myself But I learn fast and here I go!! To see the president of US.Mock a woman, let alone a sexual assault victim. We’ve sunk to a depth of depravity that I never thought the president of the United States could ever sink to you. With uproarious laughter for someone who was assaulted at 15 years old. Whether it was 35 years ago to a 75-year-old man at 15 I remember everything !! It’s time to band together. So this time in history is having a lot of negative impact and Activation-for alot of people like me. there are people will say, I had it coming or it was probably my fault. Or I deserved it -that’s what America has come to you now. Together we fight on for the empathy, and kindness towards one another, whatever your preferences are , whether you’re black or white or conservative or liberal we are Americans and we should always fight for people who have had trauma or who have suffered, and never hurt others for whatever reason. I’ve never seen such a dark time in our country . I was too young to remember 68 – but I feel like we’re headed to something much worse -Before gets better. Let’s,lead with love and kindness and empathy Towards one another.But we , victims the victim of sexual Assault,or violence,must NOT put down our armor.It’s time to fight for one another and each other in this dark time ! America We can do better – we will be better!!’ 🙏🏽🇺🇸

Jimmy Kimmel gave an unfortunate interview where he sort of shrugged off Louis C.K.’s attempts to come back into the comedy world arguing that the comedy business is a meritocracy, but fortunately, there are Paul F. Tompkins in this world because otherwise I’d just completely give up on the entire male gender.

13 Reasons Why‘s similarities to the Kavanaugh case aren’t “eerie.” They reflect the simple fact that sexual assault happens to more women than we want to admit and that our rape culture is designed to protect powerful men when it does. It’s just not that complicated, guys.

A look at how #MeToo has changed Hollywood in the year after the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke the world open.


Kudos to Superstore for writing an episode about sexual harassment and consent.

The Recording Academy’s Task Force on Diversity & Inclusion has invited 900 women and people of color to become voting members for the Grammys.

Go away, Ben Shapiro.

Go away, Steven Seagal.

Go away, Men Still Whinging About She-Ra.

Go away, Brooklyn College Professor.

One thought on “Watch Conan O’Brien get choked up while saying goodbye to his band

  1. “The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals …” says the man who hired actors to attend his coming out party.

    “Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. … These are not signs made in the basement from love! ” Y’mean like all those “hand made” signs you see behind him at his rallies?

    But the best news is that Fox&Friends have just realized that cell phones have cameras. I guess they finally traded in their flip phones.
