Coco Has Risen…Again

25 Feb


It’s been about a month now since Conan O’Brien bid a not so fond farewell to his 7+ months as host of The Tonight Show.  There has been much made about what he will do next.  Will he go to FOX, will he go to cable? 

O’Brien definitely can afford to take his time making that decision after receiving a reported $30-40 million as a going away present.  A few days ago a rumor started that he might be ready to start working again.  The talk has nothing to do with running a late night program…yet, but with heading out on a comedy tour.  That’s actually probably a very good plan for O’Brien.

I think that Coco, as he was affectionately named by Tom Hanks, is ready to get his name back out there.  Just yesterday O’Brien signed up for Twitter.  As of today, he has only written two tweets, but as amassed a whopping 348,000 + followers.  The entertainment world was a buzz with the news of his joining the tweeting community.

As Jay Leno gets ready to head back to the show made famous by Johnny Carson on March 1, I think Coco is ready to start making his way back.  Only this time it will be on his terms.

    As do I. I think in the end everything will work out better for him. His style is more off-beat and I’m not sure The Tonight Show was the best forum for him anyway.

    I’m looking forward to his eventual return back on late-night television.
