CoCo is with TBSA few days ago, Joel gave four reasons why Conan O'Brien made the right move to TBS. He mentioned, among other things, the control Conan will have over the new program and not having to fight for affiliates to air the program instead of 'Seinfeld' or 'The Simpsons.'

A fifth reason can also be added. A broader reason encompassing not just Conan's show, but the current talk shows that populate the cable horizon. You see, cable is the future of late night talk shows. I see you rolling your eyes and chuckling! However, I would hold off in calling me various versions of 'idiot' until you hear me out.

Sherri Shepherd appeared on 'The Mo'Nique Show' still riding high on 'The View's' Daytime Emmy win last August for "Best Talk Show Host." But, according to Shepherd, her reaction to winning the award was less-than-dignified.

"I was in Miami, and I didn't even go because we didn't think we were going to win," Shepherd said. "So, when they opened up the envelope and they were like, 'The winner is 'The View,'' I was sitting there in my pajamas ... I got up ... I screamed. I peed on myself."
