Conan on TBS: I Called It!

Not to brag, but this blog is the best there is, and I’m possibly psychic. If you will recall, when I declared Conan O’Brien Fonzie of the Week #18, I made the following observation:

The only question now seems to be which network will host CoCo’s triumphant return. FOX seems to be in the lead, if the rumors are to be believed, but I think that Conan might be best served by a cable network where he’ll have fewer restraints placed on him by the FCC. Sure, Jon Stewart never had as big an audience as Leno or Letterman, but it’s easy to make the case that he’s made a bigger impact on American culture, even with his smaller platform. The history books will elevate him higher than any Nielsen ratings ever could. Conan is great on network TV…how much greater could he be minus the red tape that comes with a broadcast network? It’s a question worth asking.

I wrote that post 3 months ago. So given yesterday’s announcement that Conan O’Brien’s new TV show will appear on TBS, I can only come to one of two conclusions:

A) I have the mystical ability to divine the future through my blogging. Just in case that’s true: I have a funny feeling I’m going to win the lottery next week. And also, I won’t ever go bald.


B) Conan O’Brien is secretly a big fan of the blog, and follows my every command. Just in case that’s true: I have a funny feeling Conan O’Brien is going to give me a kick-ass high-paying job on his new show. And also, I won’t ever go bald. (You can’t be too careful when it comes to losing your hair.)

Either way, it’s a very good day for Three Little Fonzies. And a good day for TV. I look forward to seeing your new show, Conan!
