Michaels also talked about "SNL," saying that he doesn’t see retirement in his immediate future, but believes that "SNL" will be the last variety show of its type, as networks wouldn’t want to greenlight a new one nowadays. 


  1. Conan will never have the level of success that Jay Leno, or, [to a lesser extent], that David Lettermen have. Number one, he is just not as funny, and number two, he has a very disturbing look about him. And all of them will never reach the level of success that Johnny Carson enjoyed. He was just the absolute best!!!!
