The final episode of “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien” aired last night. With a chance to bad-mouth NBC during his final comments, Conan remained extremely classy and humble. After Conan thanked the fans for their support, he joined Will Ferrell, ZZ Top, Beck, and Ben Harper for a final musical performance.
After “The Tonight Show” ended, “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” began with a short tribute to Conan.

Last night, Conan O’Brien made his debut as the new host of “The Tonight Show.” As a fan of “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” I was relieved to see that Conan kept his word about not “growing up” and toning down his sense of humor. It was also nice to find out that Conan’s “Late Night” staff, including his house band with Max Weinberg, moved to California. Also, Andy Richter is once again reunited with Conan as the show’s new announcer.
