Conan goes "Inside the Actors Studio"

Bravo's "Inside The Actors Studio" will feature a two-hour interview with Conan O'Brien on Monday, Jan. 26, at 8 PM Eastern time/10 PM Pacific. An NBC press release describes it as "his first in-depth on-screen interview before his much anticipated transition from a 16-year hosting gig on 'Late Night' to the coveted 'Tonight Show' seat."

Tune in earlier on Monday (10 AM Eastern) for a repeat of James Lipton's chat with Jay Leno.

    How does Conan O'Brien count as an "actor"?

    The show hasn't only been about actors for a long time, and no longer has its affiliation with the Actors Studio Drama School. Past guests have included folks like Barbara Walters, Elton John and Billy Joel.

    Perhaps it's time to change the name of the show to something more representative of its content. "James Lipton's Fawn Fest" might be more accurate.

    One recalls all the great actors and actresses who have appeared on this often-excellent show over the years and only got an hour to explore their years of devotion to their craft, then reels when learning two hours will be devoted to Conan O'Brien. He's good at what he does, but really ... Hopefully the focus will be on his writing for SNL and The Simpsons.
