Conan is back from his 2nd week long vacation since taking over the Tonight Show back in June, which is why I am calling him the George Bush of Talk Show Hosts.

It has NBC worried like crazy about the decision to turn over The Tonight Show to Conan after Jay Leno’s successful run. Saving a booking war, Jay announced he will only have one guest on the show most of the time.

Conan has been struggling to get good guests and unless he starts booking some soon, he may want to look for a new booking agent.  This week is the first week that Conan has better guests than David Letterman, who has been winning the ratings war.

Examples: David Letterman’s guests this week: Vogue’s Ana Wintour, Tennis Player Andy Roddick.

Conan: Mike Tyson, Bradley Cooper, Franz Ferdinand, and Quentin Tarintino. (A week after Letterman though)

Hopefully, Conan can turn it around. I am rooting for him but I do have to call it as I see it. And Conan, when you get good guests, make sure everyone knows it. On tonight’s show I hope you mention later this week you have Bradley Cooper and Mike Tyson on your show at least 3 times. Trust me it will work.

Coming tomorrow, another piece of advice for Mr. O’Brien.-Dr.FB

    It is odd that Conan has had so many reruns so far this season. For a new show, you think they’d want to hit the ground running. I like Conan, hope he does well. I’ll check out Jay’s new show too. Tivo makes this stuff e-z 😉
