Conan O’Brien Says Goodbye to NBC and the ‘Tonight Show’

Dear Internet,

“NBC is not alright.  In fact, it’s all wrong.”

Tonight was Conan O’Brien’s last night as the host of “The Tonight Show,” bringing to a close the two-week battle between Mr. O’Brien, Jay Leno, and NBC.  Tonight’s guests included Steve Carrell, Tom Hanks, Neil Young, and Will Farrell who closed the show with a “Freebird” jam-session.  Mr. O’Brien joined the band on guitar along with Beck, Ben Harper and Billy Gibbons, one of the “Z’s” from ZZ Top.

There were some funny retrospectives as well as a tearful goodbye speech, but in the end, Mr. O’Brien showed us all that he is the real “Mr. Nice Guy” and closed by saying:

“Between my time at ‘Saturday Night Live’ and the ‘Late Night’ show and my brief run here on ‘The Tonight Show,’ I’ve worked with NBC for over 20 years. … This company has been my home for most of my adult life. I am enormously proud of the work we’ve done together and I want to thank NBC for making it all possible. …A lot of people have been asking me about my state of mind. I’ll be honest with you — walking away from ‘The Tonight Show’ is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Making this choice has been enormously difficult. This is the best job in the world. I absolutely love doing it. …Despite this sense of loss, I really feel this should be a happy moment. Every comedian dreams of hosting ‘The Tonight Show’ and for seven months I got to do it. I did it my way with people I love. I do not regret one second of anything that we’ve done here.”

Mr. O’Brien, please don’t think MizMuze is being cynical, but she promises to not watch the “Tonight Show” from here on out.

Rock and Roll at The Sundance Film Festival Twenty-Ten January 22, 2010

The Sundance Film Festival started yesterday in Park City Utah and runs through January 31, 2010.  One of the films premiering at the festival and catching a lot of buzz is the rock biopic “The Runaways.”  You remember The Runaways–1970’s all-girl teenage rock band, known as “jailbait rock” because Joan Jett, Sandy West, Lita Ford, and Cherie Currie were underage when they started the band.

Starring Kristen Stewart (“Twilight”) as Joan Jett, and Dakota Fanning (“I Am Sam”) as Cherie Currie, the film will have its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival on January 24th, and will open in wide release on March 19, 2010.

Cast of ‘Jersey Shore’ to Star in Sequel to ‘Idiocracy’

Idiocracy The Original…

Mike Judge, creator of “Beavis and Butt-head,” “Office Space,” and “King of the Hill” has stated that the entire cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” will star in his up-coming sequel to “Idiocracy” tentatively titled “Idiocracier – The Shore Drops a Deuce.”  Mr. Judge admitted that he had not intended to write a sequel to his 2006 sleeper-hit starring Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph, but that he was inspired after watching the fist-pumping and face-punching antics of Snooki, The Situation, and JWOWW of MTV’s reality show “Jersey Shore.”

Mr. Judge did not want to reveal too much about the sequel, but did give a little insight about the premise.  In the final scene of “Idiocracy,” we see that Rita’s pimp, Upgrayedd, has built a time machine and travels to the future searching for Rita to pay back the money she owes him from 500 years ago.  The sequel picks up with Upgayedd finding Rita and Joe and threatening to give them a “double dose” beat-down if they don’t come up with his money, plus interest.  Rita and Joe narrowly escape by taking off in Upgayedd’s time machine and land back in the present year of 2010 on the Jersey Shore.

Rita and Joe are astonished to find that the world has degraded so much in the 5 years they were gone—the Jersey Shore now resembles the dystopia they left behind—the residents speak unintelligibly, have ridiculous nicknames, sustain themselves on junk food, wear garish clothes, find pleasure in violence, and do nothing but tan, get drunk, and “beat the beat” in the dance clubs.  Realizing that the cast of “Jersey Shore” is to blame for the present decline of civilization, Joe and Rita kidnap Snooki and the gang, and bring them to already destroyed planet 500 years into the future.  It is Joe and Rita’s hope that ridding the world of the “Jersey Shore” cast will ultimately save our planet.

Be sure to watch the season finale of “Jersey Shore” on MTV tonight at 10:00 p.m. for all your hair gel, tanning, neon lycra dress, and bedazzled shirt wearing fashion tips!
