It's hard to feel sorry for a guy who banked millions for not hosting "The Tonight Show" anymore, but it's also fascinating to see a man this compulsively driven to get back in front of people and tell jokes, to hear the laughter, to soak in the applause.

...depicts a fiercely talented performer who has created...a temple to his own cult. While the resulting spectacle may be distasteful in its egotism and indulgence, there's no doubting the drive and devotion of a man for whom the world truly is a stage.

While it didn't blow me away, it was great to see behind the scenes look at how Conan operates.

If I could show up not do my job and get paid 30 million dollars I wouldn't still be complaining about it years later. Quit crying you big girl.
