Conan O'Brien's Debut Week: Ratings Update and Instant Classic Segment

Conan O'Brien scored a 7.1 rating Monday for his big debut on The Tonight Show, more than his major time-slot competitors, The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS and Nightline on ABC, combined. While his ratings dropped 30 percent for Tuesday's show (and will probably continue to erode all week), that was still 22 percent better than Jay Leno's average for the last quarter.

Last night, Conan delivered an instant classic with a modification of his recurring "In the Year 2000" segment. Introducing "In the Year 3000," Conan announced that YouTube, Twitter and Facebook will merge to form one super time-wasting Website called, "YouTwitFace." Check out the video clip ("YouTwitFace" is mentioned at the end; 5:15 in): click here

Note: Here are results of a recent EntertainmentBlogger poll on the debut episode:
