It’s a slow goddamn news day, and I’m not just saying that because I’m about to jump on a plane to Philly. There is nothing out there this morning, not even a trailer for a crappy new movie, which is strange considering that Thursday night and Friday mornings are when many of them debut. I suppose no one wanted to attach their new trailers to Land of the Lost (review coming later today, from Philadelphia).

Anyway, it’s been a big week in the late night world. Conan debuted on “The Tonight Show, and since there’s been little else on TV, I’ve watched a lot of late-night TV. And here’s where you benefit — here are three of the better segments from around late night this week.

The first video comes from Jimmy Fallon’s show. Mrs. Pajiba-hyphenate insists he’s funny; she thinks his stuttering, rambling, and nervousness is charming. I think she has a very low threshold for charming (see, e.g., her choice of husband). But, Jimmy Fallon really is his best when he’s playing guitar. This is pretty great:

Next up, here’s Dave’s Top Ten from last night. The Top Ten Reason’s You’ve Hired a Bad Host for the Tony Awards. Neil Patrick Harris does the honors.

And finally, Dan was pimping this on Twitter yesterday. It’s pretty great: Conan’s new set is remarkably similar to Mario Brothers. Check it out. And for the hell of it, here’s Conan’s cold open on his very first show on “The Tonight Show.”
