Why is the Clog putting up this clip of former Secretary of Labor and professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy Robert Reich on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”? It’s awesome, for one. And practically speaking, we think it shows the “get tough on crime” approach we need in the face of recent events. We hope the Berkeley police will get the memo. Let’s get Conan to lead the crackdown.

 We just want to say that it’s evident that we love masturbating and bears, so it only makes sense we love the Masturbating Bear on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” It’s high-class comedy.And this week, O’Brien is bringing the class to San Francisco. CalTV even got an interview of the interviewer. Oh touche.Is it better than the uncomfortable Q&A with Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle? We still have nightmares about that one.First, O’Brien is greater than Sandler and Cheadle combined, so yes, the interview is better. O’Brien’s comfortable in front of the camera, mixing his silly humor with earnest advice for college students. He really carries the interview, a skill earned from years of experience talking to various celebrities on his show.But it’s still not perfect. We don’t know if it’s the height difference between O’Brien, who is 6’4″, and Moujan, but something definitely feels uneasy. Moujan, who normally exudes a strong comedic presence on the CalTV Show, is obviously nervous in front of the star. She doesn’t lead the interview. O’Brien does all the work for her.We mean, that works and it’s certainly better than CalTV’s first interview with celebrities, but it’s not perfect.Sorry, Moujan. We still love you.Either way we look at it, CalTV is still a winner–just look at how far it has gone this past year. It’s getting more traffic and more recognition (hey, we’re even writing about it), and for the most part, CalTV deserves it.Its production officially ended last week and is set to resume in the fall.Unfortunately, Conan O’Brien will not be returning.CalTV Does Conan O’Brien [CalTV]
