The War on Late Night
Conan Is Feeling a Little Blue
NBC has released the first picture of the new "Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien" set—and it's quite striking.
The dominant color on the set is blue: Blue curtains, blue carpet, a blue bandstand and a blue skyline of Los Angeles at night. The background includes a number of L.A. landmarks, including the Capitol Records tower and what appears to be City Hall. There's also a giant full moon.
As for the mandatory late-night couch, it's not blue. It's more of a burnt orange. It looks quite plush.
