'Coco and the Chin': #Conan O'Brien apparently 100% OK with this #LenoFAIL situation [Updated]

January 12, 2010 | 11:52 am

Conan Conan O'Brien's monologues lately are proving that he's totally OK with all this Jay Leno stuff.

Absolutely. Completely. I mean, who wouldn't be?

The monologue above, from Friday, is short and hysterically funny. The monologue embedded after the jump (It's the entire Monday show, actually, in case you weren't very busy at work) is long, but, um, illuminating, with good stuff up front and then another list at 5:30.

The "Twilight" and "Avatar" gags come shortly thereafter. 

What were we saying last week about comedy coming from pain?

[Updated at 12:36 p.m.: You know we were joking about him being OK with this whole mess, right? Conan just released a statement rejecting what he calls the "destruction" of "The Tonight Show." In other words, he ain't OK with a 12:05 a.m. time slot. He also says that although there's talk of him moving to another network, he has no other offer.]
