Late night television returned last night with Letterman, Leno and Conan all getting back on the air after a two month hiatus due to the ongoing writers strike. Although Letterman was fortunate enough to negotiate a deal with the WGA through his Worldwide Pants production company, bringing back his entire writing staff, Leno and Conan are having to do it on their own. What makes this a bit more challenging is that the two are in the WGA, therefore they can't write during the strike either.
For Conan's grand debut last night, he had to resort to pulling out plenty of zany Conan-isms, with much of the opening segment revolving around his newly grown beard and spinning his wedding ring on his desk. He did piece together an amusing video, showing what his staff has been doing for the past two months, including annoying his fellow co-workers with his guitar playing and jamming on the Rock Band video game. This resulted in an amusing rendition of Conan singing Radiohead's "Creep," as well as Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" which he sang in the voice of Edith Bunker. Check out the video below... and welcome back Conan!
