Conan O'Brien relishes that he can show an Italy adventure while other shows are talking Trump
“There’s part of me that is delighted that everyone is talking about the raid on Trump’s lawyer, and what was seized, and what’s in those papers. And what’s Conan up to? He’s in Italy with one of his producers, torturing him,” he says of this week's Conan Without Borders episode, adding: “I love that this show is just a confection. It’s just pure silliness."

Andy Richter endorses an article eviscerating his former Late Night colleague Louis CK
Richter and Louis CK were colleagues when Conan O’Brien launched his Late Night show in September 1993, with CK serving as a staff writer. On Thursday night, Richter tweeted a link to the recent GQ article, “Why All the Comedy Men Are So Awful,” which takes down Louis CK’s statement addressing his sexual misconduct and his “playing the victim” brand of comedy. “Nail, meet hammer,” Richter wrote in his tweet. Conan, meanwhile, has yet to weigh in on Louis CK as his last show was taped a few hours after The New York Times bombshell. He did tweet last Saturday: "I'm ready for the all-female reboot of America."
