Well, this sounds good. On the heels of his final Late Night show, it was just announced this week that Conan O'Brien is taking on Andy Richter to be the Announcer/Sidekick on the new Tonight Show. In LA.
I think this is actually good news. It gives this new Tonight incarnation a fighting chance, now, and it will be more of an attraction for people after Jay Leno's lead-in effort is done. Richter helped liven up Conan's Late Night show, and I always thought something was missing with him gone, trying to make it on his own. It's kind of too bad his sitcoms were such flops -- the shows weren't that bad.
Anyway, he's back with Conan again. It's good to have this pair back together again -- for the first time!
Of course I still plan to watch Letterman, but still, it's a smart move.
