Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

First things first, our sincere apologies for yesterday’s missing version of #EndorseThis. Not that an alibi is needed with such loyal readership, but stormy travel skies, flawed WiFi at 20,000 feet, and a dead laptop combined to put your humble narrator out of commission for most of a day.

Now that we’re back to it, how about a fresh start? “ET” has perhaps been alienated (see what we did there?) with some many serious themes lately. This column is at-heart a late-night comedy review. No need for too many “very special episodes!”

Conan O’Brien fits in our new theme perfectly, leading off a Wednesday night monologue with several vicious punch lines about President Trump in the first 60 seconds.

But wait for the Trump-Roseanne joke with a subtle John McCain reference. It might be just a little too soon, but you can’t say it doesn’t feel right.

Conan. Destroyer of audience.
