In the short run, we can’t make 100% of the people winners.”

“ Late Night With Conan O’Brien” debuts this week. O’Brien comes from writing side of the business, working with Saturday Night Live for three years before signing with “The Simpsons.”  Producer Lorne Michaels says he thinks O’Brien has what it takes - “It’s a gamble using an unknown, but I think Conan will do fine. He’s funny, intelligent and playful - he’s always been one of the funniest people in the room among writers and performers. Conan is going to make some mistakes but he gets better every night we do the show. Ultimately, I think talk shows come down to whether or not you like the host, and I think people will like Conan.”
