Conan O'Brien fails at writing.

He's back, and he's writing solo.

I understand he's under the pressure of writing a one-hour show five times a week, so of course he's going to run out of ideas, but he could not come up with a single decent idea for a 15 minute opening segment that he literally had a week and a half to plan for.

He spent the entire time dicking around, once actually spinning a ring on his desk for part of the time.

It was amusing 'til you figured out what it meant: that without his writers, Conan's got nothing.

Shame, 'cause Conan's one of my faves.

Did anybody catch Leno?

No show is anything without their writers.

I'm reserving judgment. I bet Leno can pull it off, he's a writing machine.

Stewart and Colbert have very tall tasks in store for themselves, though.

I haven't really missed the writers. I guess that shows how much I watch network TV.

Is Leno going without writers or did he make a deal with them like Letterman?

That's ok, no one really missed you when you were gone either.

I actually wonder if O'Brien is deliberately sucking to make a point.

Seriously, I could have put forth a show with as much coherence and entertainment as O'Brien has today. Considering that this is his first day back, and he's had literally a week and a half to prepare, the next however-many shows that he only has a day are sure to be either snooze-fests, disasters, or both.

Huckabee was fun to watch on Leno tonite. Good timing on his part.

I can see how Conan can crash, as he may be over-writing for himself. Leno is much better at improv and has way more experience working the crowd and working the guests into the audience.
