We've had some generically positive comments posted here regarding Conan O'Brien's return to late night TV but what is it specifically that is so great about him being back? As we wondered on our post this Monday, will Conan push the envelope of what is acceptable on basic cable - sure enough, he did a segment where he sat down with TBS' standards & practices officer (aka the censor) to see what he could or couldn't do. Needless to say it was very funny but what it illustrated is that O'Brien knows he's in a new environment and that he has more freedom than he did on NBC = watch out.
We knew that Scarlett Johansson was to host this weekend's "Saturday Night Live" (with musical guest Arcade Fire) but we didn't know it was to be for the 3rd time (she's only 25). We remember that she wasn't the best of guest hosts the last time she did it or are we confusing her with (yet) another mediocre guest host? Do you think she has the chops to be one of the most repeated female guest hosts for "SNL"? Obviously Lorne Michaels likes her but is there no other voice of reason there? See the promo clip at the end of this post.
