Now here’s a rumor if I’ve ever heard one. Apparently, someone out there thinks that Conan O’Brien should be Simon Cowell’s replacement on American Idol. That’s rich.
Not that he wouldn’t be a funny replacement on the talent competition, because he would be. That show doesn’t need comic relief, it needs music industry knowledge and honesty. Sure, he would be a great guest judge. It would probably boost ratings, but as far as the long haul, I’m leaning towards no.
What do you think? Would you like to see Conan on Idol? I would love to see him get another late night talk show, and Fox would see a ratings jump if he guest hosted, but I don’t think he’s got what they’re looking for. Not that that’s a bad thing, because I loved Conan. He worked hard for “The Tonight Show” and got rammed in the rear by NBC.
