Blogs > In The Mix

Reporter Shaun Byron and Video Editor Andrew DuPont sound-off on whatever is on their minds, from politics to pop-culture, from movies to the main stream media. Local, national, world-wide? If it's in the media mix, these two are sure to have an opinion on it.

Should Conan grow up?

On his last night as host of Late Night, Conan O'Brien told his audience he's aware that critics are saying he needs to "grow up" before taking over the Tonight Show on June 1. Conan, however, said this isn't going to happen.

Quite frankly, it's shouldn't. Conan's success and humor come from his sometimes low-brow humor and "unrefined" style. It may not be Jay Leno, but who cares? If they wanted the host of the Tonight Show to act like that they should have extended Leno's contract. If Conan changed his ways to accommodate his new time slot, he would lose what made him this great to begin with.

Personally, I can't wait to see him take over the Tonight Show and I hope to see him be the same guy who has made me laugh for years.

I'm excited because I might be able to stay awake long enough to watch him. He should bring back the horny manatee.
