I've always enjoyed the comedic stylings of Demetri Martin. I'm catching his new show on Comedy Central right now and am thoroughly amused.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

Joaquin Phoenix seems to share his brother's affinity for drugs.

Funny and a good showcase for his talents.

I'm going to miss Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

I'll still watch when he moves, it won't be the same though.

Are we just getting three months of reruns until the new Conan tonight show launches? Hope its done with some care, like a greatest hits package and not just random episodes from the last twelve months.

Fox Sports Network South can bite me.

A big annoyance down here is when I flip through the listings and see they are playing something like Bruins at Thrashers or Capitals at Lightning and when you go to it, its a replay of Clemson vs. South Carolina in womens basketball from the 2003 season. The blackout rules seem completely random. Why would the Lightning be blacked out in North Carolina?

Don't frigging list the game if you aren't going to play it.

It seems a little late in the season to splash out for Center Ice. Will need to remind myself to do that next year.

"Late Night with Conan O'Brien " signs off today after 16 years and 2,725 episodes. Its gangly red-haired host will pack up, move west and "reinvent" himself in his dream job: host of "The Tonight Show."

In NBC's late-night game of musical chairs, Jimmy Fallon steps in for O'Brien on March 2, O'Brien replaces Jay Leno on the storied franchise on June 1, and Leno moves his act to prime time in early September.

But before all that, there was some misty-eyed reminiscing to do. Since last week, the show has been re-airing some treasured remote segments, a mix of staff picks and fan favorites like Conan's apple-picking expedition with Mr. T and his quest to sell his 1992 Ford Taurus.

He booked some favorite guests -- Martha Stewart, Jerry Seinfeld and Norm Macdonald -- and promises a surprise or two for tonight's finale, when the White Stripes will appear. And there are the "silly montages that capture what this show is about," O'Brien said last week in his modest 30 Rock office, where boxes were piling up in the hallways.

"We're trying to walk the line between these being kind of normal shows" and greatest hits. "You don't want to get too self-indulgent. ... I'm not dying; this isn't Lou Gehrig's final speech. I'm being moved to the Los Angeles branch," he says.

Though he's destined for an earlier time slot and a higher profile, it's easy to forget that when he replaced David Letterman on "Late Night" in 1993, O'Brien was a 29-year-old Harvard grad who had written for "The Simpsons" and "Saturday Night Live" but had no on-camera experience. That didn't inspire much confidence from NBC. The network gave him a series of very short commitments to prove himself.

O'Brien reflects on the change. It's "a little too big to contemplate. This show has been more than a job for me; I met my wife on a remote, and we have two kids. I got my dog through this show. This has been a huge central part of my life."

He continues, "I'm quite good at denial, so I've been keeping it at bay. There's not time to dwell. But when we're doing the last show, it'll hit me. I'll probably cry like a baby."

Clearly if I had the needs and funding I would surely invest here and become the change Detroit needs.
