We all said goodbye to Conan tonight as the host of the Tonight Show. I kept hoping that NBC would change their minds especially when his ratings flew through the roof in light of the drama. No luck. Conan was on fire these past couple of weeks. I’ve always been a fan. He’s such a smart entertainer and I’m pretty sure I won’t be tuning into Jay Leno’s return in the spring. I’m completely apathetic to his brand of comedy. Anyways, as Conan teared up during his goodbyes, he gave this GOOD advice:
“All I ask is one thing. I’m asking this particularly of young people
that watch. Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism For the record, it’s my least favorite quality. It doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get, but if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen. I’m telling you, amazing things will happen. “
I think I teared up a little.
And then he played guitar while Will Ferrell serenaded us with Freebird and a healthy dose of cowbell and random celebrities.
