Okay, so this isn't music related news, but it is worth mentioning here on the good ol' Tripwire. The twenty foot tall redheaded comedic genius, Conan O'Brien, will be taking over The Tonight Show in 2009. YES! YES! YES! Jay Leno will be wrapping up his tenure as host of the late night television program, even though he has admitted the he has grown "reluctant" to retire his position.
It is pretty safe to assume that ol' Leno will pop back up somewhere, possibly even on his current home of NBC. Regardless, we're thrilled that Conan will be invading our boob tubes earlier each evening. So the question is, with his earlier time slot, will bits like the Horny Manatee and the Masturbating Bear make the transition from Late Night to the Tonight Show? We sure hope so.
