VIDEO: Conan, Will Ferrell, 'Freebird' and a cowbell - how the 'Tonight Show' ended

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

There may not be any more Coco after Conan O'Brien bid a relatively classy adieu to NBC and "The Tonight Show," but there was certainly more cowbell. And some more cowbell. And a little more cowbell.

And "Freebird"

A semi-all-star jam played out O'Brien after his six-and-a-half months of late night talk glory - the last half month was more gory. Billy Gibbons. Ben Harper. And Beck. And, of course, Will Ferrell - with a guest appearance by very pregnant wife Viveca as a background dancer and deep, tongue-kissing target - on the cowbell.

If only Conan had been as good as he was this week for the whole run, maybe this mess could have been averted. Or not. Jeff Zucker would have still been involved.
