The Kari Wuhrer interview was one of the most surreal pieces of late-night TV
since Crispin Glover took a karate chop at Letterman's skull....

Did anyone notice as the credits rolled, Conan pointed something out to the
side, and Kari looked on aghast, it seemed, in absolute horror?

Yeah, I noticed that too - all I could figure is that she wanted to bolt from
her seat, but didn't want the camera to be on her when she did,

This was a very weird interview. I can't say it was hilarious,
but it was interesting to watch. (This is also the sort of thing that
in the Bad Old Days would have been just a horrid disaster. These days,
Conan's sharp enough to pull out 'compellivision.' Nicely done.)

Oh, also...don't be too quick to call someone an idiot based on
how they appear on TV. Like Al Bell said, the camera drains you of about
75 IQ points and half your personality. It's hard to go up and be
yourself and still be entertaining.

Did anyone else noticed that Conan was a bit out of it and added to Conan's
awkwardness, the audience seemed a little crappy... Thats just what I thought.
Probably just his illness but oh well.

This was going to wait until my weekly list, but I have to say a
few things now.

1. Slutty outfit. Not the good kind of slutty/sexy but slutty/tacky.
2. I haven't seen 'Sliders' in a long time. What happened to that cute
spunky girl who was on the show the first season? Did Wuhrer replace
her? What a mistake.
3. Wuhrer flirted obnoxiously and badly. Some folks have stated Conan
seemed uncomfortable with her and I agree. It often looked like he
wasn't sure how to respond to her raucously ribald behavior.
4. Every single time Conan did something funny, brought attention to
himself (i.e. the 'I'm a little Letterman' spaz attack) Wuhrer became
snooty and glum and glared at him. I'll check the tape but I'm pretty
sure she rolled her eyes at him also.
5. Teri Garr on acid would have been a lot more entertaining.
6. Based upon the segment with Scott Dickers, I bought the book 'Our
Dumb Century' (it's a terrific book). Nothing on Earth could compel me
to buy Wuhrer's CD 'Shiny' -- Really, who would shell out the buck to
listen to her 'recite'?

I don't think she's an idiot, in fact I thought she was charming and
bubbly ("Terri Garr on acid!"--that's an astute, funny, self-deprecating
comment.) And, yes, she is very hot, so maybe my judgement is swayed but
I genuinely think she was a great guest.

But what was unusual was how unresponsive Conan was, as if winking to
his girlfriend that he wasn't impressed with her. It was like she was
waiting for one of his trademark sexy purrs and he just wouldn't give it
up, even though he so readily gives it up for much some really dim
actresses.

Conan will do somersaults over any bland comment by Gina Gershon and
then he goes cold when confronted with Ms. Wuhrer.

Just another example of something distinctive and distracting about
"Late Night": as much as I love the show and as much as I wouldn't want
Conan to be a smooth smarmy Craig Kilborn (although I have been sneaking
peeks at that show and actually like some of it), I am always appalled
by how Conan never seems to improve in certain areas. He still can't
introduce a bit without stumbling over his words, he can't think of
anything new to say before and after his monologues. Don't get me wrong:
I love the show and I love Conan, but how many years will he have to do
this before he starts feeling comfortable?

Like a train wreck...she found a new way to insult, be freaky or stupid at
least three times per minute! Thought she'd level out at some point, but
no....She's really pretty, and was great as the gymnastic gypsy in "Thinner,"
and seemed more normal in her mtv days, but boy was she high for this
interview...

It was fun TV!

They should run it again, becuase Stephen Wright was really at his best form.

But they might not, because Kari Whatever was so incredibly embarrassingly HIGH
during the show. She was on some kind of either psychoactive drug or your
garden variety speed, cocaine or meth. Big time. For a Long time. No one
else noticed this? I've seen actors/actresses on Conan on drugs that
maintained much better than that. She needs to purge, beh-beh.

Okay, she's not an idiot. But that was the best TV I've seen in a looong time.


I fell off the couch laughing. It reminded me of when Letterman had has "Hell
Week" with reruns of all his worst guests.

WHAT?!? She was completely incoherent (viz the weird "Terri Garr"
comment...how in the hell is she like Terri Garr?), and about as
charming and bubbly as...well, something not charming and bubbly in the
slightest. Pretty JarJaresque. The only question that remains in my mind
is whether her natural stupidity, clearly evinced by her appearance on
"Jeopardy!", was augmented by mind-altering drugs. (Her breasts already
look augmented, but I'm sure that mind-altering drugs aren't to blame.)

She now plays cute, spunky Natalie on "Sports Night," a move that
may go down in history as the best instance of trading up roles, ever.

I stopped watching "Sliders" when it ceased being a competent (if
uneven), campy alternate universes show and spun out of control into yet
another "us against the evil empire" show. I have it on good authority
that Wuhrer plays a *marine* (she justs oozes military training, doesn't
she?) from an alternate universe taken over by the new uber bad guys, the
Cromags.

I already had the book, but based on the interview, I bought the
audio version of the book.

Don't underestimate the power of hormones in overdrive. I had
no less than seven similar e-mails in my box this morning wanting to know
what her name was and where to get her CD. Because they were similarly
worded and appeared at almost exact fifteen minute intervals, I suspected
that they might be one person using multiple accounts to ask the same
question, but, sadly, they were all unique.

I fear I must agree with you. I've been a fan of Ms. Wuhrer since her
days on Remote Control, but hers was possibly the worst interview I've
ever seen (after Crispin Glover's, of course, which I'll never forget
(I'm tough; I can kick)).

Yeah; I've hated that show from the get-go. When are they going to
slide onto an alternate Earth where oxygen never formed?

Looong ago...maybe eight years? It was during the NBC days. And Crispin Glover
was one of the intreviews.

I would also like to know when they did the Hell Week thing.

COnan's dig at Wuhrer that he was "Tiny Letterman" was classic.
