Conan O'Brien Says Goodbye to Tonight Show

Conan O'Brien

Conan O'Brien ended his brief run as host of The Tonight Show with thanks to his fans and even the network that is replacing him a mere seven months into his dream job.

"Yes, we have our differences right now and yes, we're going to go our separate ways," O'Brien said of NBC, his employer of 17 years. "But this company has been my home for most of my adult life. I am enormously proud of the work we have done together, and I want to thank NBC for making it all possible."

Leave it to Weaver: Actress Sigourney Weaver, who has scored Oscar nominations for her work in the films Aliens, Working Girl and Gorillas in the Mist, headlines the show as the host. Weaver is currently queen of the world, appearing in James Cameron's visually stunning box-office titan Avatar. (Cameron also directed Weaver in the 1986 space odyssey Aliens.) Weaver blasts off tonight, helping the SNL players rip into the week's newsworthy events — and perhaps even throw some satirical zingers at Avatar itself. The English pop duo the Ting Tings deliver music performances.

True and her pals get involved in a school play, and they quickly learn that all the real drama occurs backstage. True and Lulu are initially pleased that Ryan is the director. However, their excitement fades when Ryan fires True from working on the costumes and casts his crush, Kelsey, as the lead instead of Lulu. But Ryan better watch out, because an angry True is even willing to team up with Pinky Turzo (returning guest star Jeanette McCurdy) to get revenge.

It's the last live outing before the holidays, so we can expect some Yuletide yuks tonight. The show has delivered memorable comedy for Christmas in the past — take Alec Baldwin's "Delicious Dish and the Schweddy Balls" and Steve Martin's "A Holiday Wish," for example. Jingling all the way as host is James Franco, who has appeared in the films Milk, Pineapple Express and in the Spider-Man franchise. We also get amusement from Muse. Hot off the release of their fifth studio album, The Resistance, the Brit band delivers alt experimentation and prog-rock blast on the performance stage.

Premise: Landmark, Emmy-winning satire from an ever-changing company of 'Not Ready for Prime Time Players' who rode the variety show to fame, including (to name just a few of its celebrated grads) Eddie Murphy, Dana Carvey, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Al Franken and Mike Myers. From its debut, with Andy Kaufman's memorably bizarre rendition of the 'Mighty Mouse' theme, through John Belushi's Samurai and Gilda Radner's Roseanne Roseannadanna, 'SNL' forever changed the landscape of TV comedy.
