Conan tells it better. But, in short: A tee-shirt company in Boston sent Conan a local tee that didn't resonate with his experience of growing up in the Massachusetts capital. So, he complains about it and asks for a more "realistic" one, an outrageous depiction of his actual childhood. Well, the tee-shirt company delivered. They sent him a new tee, effectively knocking it out of, well, Fenway Park! Get yours here. Read the rest

Conan O'Brien and his show's associate producer Jordan Schlansky recently traveled to Italy together. According to Conan, Jordan is a "self-proclaimed expert of all things Italian," as he's traveled there before 30 different times.
Their road trip -- in a tiny red vintage Fiat, no less -- began in Florence and ended in Naples, the same route Jordan has driven many times sans his boss.
Now, in case you haven't seen their previous interactions, Jordan is the perfect "uptight straight man" to Conan's over-the-top "funny man" shenanigans. And there are definitely some over-the-top shenanigans on this road trip. For instance, while walking down a street, Conan starts yelling out pasta names as if they were legit greetings to random Italians, "Rigatoni!"
In the next segment, Jordan, not once cracking a smile, strips naked to pose for Conan's drawing class. You get the picture.
I've seen all of the Conan Without Borders (imo, it's the best work Team Coco creates), and I think this particular one is the funniest yet. The entire playlist for it is here and includes behind-the-scenes footage and a Q&A segment. Read the rest

Apparently, there are some "rumblings" (a professional show business term) that NBC is looking at Jimmy Fallon to replace Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show when the latter's contract is up in 2014. Unless, you know, NBC changes their mind and just lets Jay Leno stay on. Again. (via New York Daily News) Read the rest
