TV Junkie: Bill Burr to do First Stand-up on 'Tonight Show'; Colber(t) Reports from Iraq; 'Weeds' Returns
Bill Burr will be the first stand-up comedian to perform on "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien"
The TV Junkie is back from two weeks in France where we didn't watch much of any TV but we're still addicted, so here we are.What we missed was the debut of the new "Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien" - tell us how you think Conan is doing in the earlier time slot - Comment Please! Speaking of "The Tonight Show", the exceptional Bill Burr will be appearing tonight as the first stand-up comedian to grace the new version of "The Tonight Show".
Check out a video clip of Burr's act (NSFW) and a video interview we did with him after the jump and don't miss tonight's historic moment.
This week "The Colber(t) Repor(t)" will be broadcasting from Iraq which should be interesting as we wonder how the show's faux conservatism will be received by the troops and other parties.
