Conan O’Brien had a strong showing in his final show as host of Late Night. This show received 44.5% higher ratings than normal during this season. O’Brien promised that he wouldn’t “grow up” for the 11:30 timeslot, which garnered him a rousing standing ovation from his studio audience. The show was part clip show, part thank you with appearances from Andy Richter, Will Ferrell, and Abe Vigoda, who was released back into the wild.
Conan begins hosting the Tonight Show June 1st.
