VIDEO: Conan’s Run Across America

Jun 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Conan O’Brien opened his first “Late Night” in 1993 with a very funny bit in which he strolled around Manhattan while the entire city reminded him he was no David Letterman.

Last week, I was fortunate enough to get a tour of O’Brien’s “Tonight Show” set and offices. When I was in his office, I noticed that on the bulletin board where future guests and sketches are tracked, an index card stated simply, “Conan Runs Across America.”

I had a feeling O’Brien was planning a subtle call back to his last First Night, and sure enough, he didn’t disappoint.  The video is below.

Meanwhile, “The Tonight Show” is in very good hands, indeed.


  1. The only reson O’Brien beat Letterman last night was people were inquisitive what type show O’Brien has. Now that people see he’s still not a funny guy his ratings will soar downward. How in the world did O’Brien get the Tonight Show job, was it because he graduated from Harvard or what?

  2. Video for only American viewing. I really really HATE that, and I suspect that 90% of the people on the internet that happen to live outside of the USA would agree. 🙁
