Reminder: How Conan ended up on TBS

By Liz Kelly

In case you spent the last several months asleep, in the Betty Ford Center or -- like me -- on maternity leave, you may have forgotten the twisted path that led Conan O'Brien from NBC to TBS.

Luckily, Taiwanese CGI news service NMA is on the case with a handy animated primer illustrating how Conan got here from there in a viral-video lasting one minute and 38 seconds. Oh, and they helpfully remind Taiwanese viewers -- who don't have TBS -- that they can see Conan's new shows online.

My favorite part of the show... the meeting with the execs when he opened his offer.. Less.. Much.. too funny.

I'm not smart enough to understand O'Brian. In other words... I don't find him funny. Love the Office, Simpsons, Stranger's with Candy... Dave Chappell but, Conan and Jay Leno and especially Jimmy Kimmel I find tell dumbed down jokes with O'Brian apparently the lowest because I just don't get it. It may go back to when I would stay up and watch my parents watch Johnny Carson. They would laugh hysterically and I didn't get it.
