It starts tonight, he's having Mike Myers, Jim Carrey, Michael J. Fox, and some other Canadians on the show while there. Posting this more or less because of this video I saw:

Believe it or not, with all the tv coverage, I almost forgot about Conan until I read this post. He's been in almost every tv and radio commercial and I still forgot.

I'm very curious to know how, and if, the american viewers are enjoying this?

Or are you getting turned off by all the Canadiana.

Incidentally, for those just watching, the kid with the light up jacket, which read FLyerman, at the end of the Myers segment also appears in the Foo live DVD, that's the second time I've seen this kid. He really gets around, how creepy.

Lots of Canadiana. The Canadian Small Talk moment was mostly accurate, and funny.
There was even some stuff that I've never heard of, like a Scarborough Suitcase?
I don't know what that is, and I've lived here for 14 years!

I've also seen Flyerman at the Radiohead concert and The Strokes concert, really annoying guy.

I'm not from T.O., but I believe Mike Myers was referring to a 6-pack (or a 12-pack or a two-four).

If not alcohol related, it could be a box of donuts (the Tim Horton's reference - which was Stan Makita's Donuts in Wayne's World)

I am semi-ashamed to say I didn't get it at all.

*ok googled him he's some hockey guy. So now I'm not ashamed at all. Posted Image

Conan is indeed the best thing on television today imo. If Andy never left it may have been even better. He can never come back now though.

And Paul yea I'm enjoying this a lot. Anything new with Consey is a nice break. This treatment reminds me a lot of the 10th anniversary. Posted Image

Conan is the king of late night. i used to like Letterman (and still do a little) but he just seems tired of it all.

the Canadian stuff was great; i didn't really like the final comic though. i couldn't even understand alot of what he was saying; from the references to how fast he was talking, and it wasn't really all that funny.

my dream would be Triumph walking down Queen St. and cutting us all up. Posted Image

And my dream is for Triumph meeting up with Ed the Sock and have them duke it out.

ARghhh, I totally forgot about it.
Yeah, I would love to see Triumph and Ed the Sock go at it. Then they can relax with a stogie afterwards.

Richard, don't forget that Star-TV replays Conan the next day in the early evening (before Leno on NBC)...you might get a chance yet.

I've seen Ron James stand-up many times on TV (Just For Laughs and other specials) so some of the material is rehashed, but I think it probably went over the heads to too many Americans.

I wish the crowd was a little more subdued, too many interruptions of Conan & Myers.

Yeah, Ron James is typical Newfie humour. I can see it going right over a lot of Americans heads...except for New Englanders maybe Posted Image
Thanks for the tip Keith but I don't get Star TV. Oh well, I'll just have to watch tonight.

Keith, thanks for the heads-up on Star's rebroadcast. I was having more and more trouble staying awake during the show's original broadcast. I'm now subscribed to the channel.

I was born and raised(and still live in) Texas, and I got the Don Cherry joke..I'm a hockey fanatic and have NHL Center Ice and get CBC hockey broadcasts. Heck from what I remember there was nothing the little Newfie said I didn't understand.

Last time I checked, Ron James was from Nova Scotia, if that's the "Little Newfie" in question. I'm also not a big fan of "newfie" being thrown around, but oh well.

Here's a concept. What if Conan and Max did "A Canadian Moment" in French? Posted Image

Their Canadian Moments are starting to scare me. I was having trouble catching up with what they were saying, which on the whole seemed reasonably accurate. Does that mean I'm less Canadian than the two of them? Posted Image
