Keeping to an offhanded quip he made a few weeks back, Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter did last night’s entire episode of “Conan” from a mini version of their set.
Michelle Obama and David Letterman had a very easygoing conversation on the “Late Show” last night, a sign that Dave was charmed by the First Lady. Right before she talked about her excursion to a DC-area Target last year, she and Dave talked about Bo, the Obama family dog.
What happens when Ted Buckland (Sam Lloyd) sees people in the “Cougar Town” world that look like people he knows in the “Scrubs” world? We found that out last night on “Cougar Town”.
