    Conan remains peerless at the art of mock-shtick, his mid-monologue mugging to the new set’s camera angles playing irresistibly like he’s photobombing himself. ... Even if this first foray into the half-hour format isn’t a form-busting revelation right out of the gate, it hints at the possibilities of a reenergized comic mind prodding the late-night electric fence for weaknesses.

    It takes great skill to be so soothing, especially when herky-jerky absurdity is the basis of one’s act. Ovaltine is delicious, and O’Brien has found its ideal serving size.

    Underwhelming open that feels underfunded too.

    As of night one, the new Conan feels a lot like the Conan O’Brien who has now been part of the late-night landscape for a quarter of a century.

    It’s a wobbly excuse for a fresh start, and so far, "Conan" makes the case that less is truly less. ... The good news is that the amiably self-deprecating, wryly peevish, can’t-do spirit of “Conan” appears to have survived the makeover intact. But it feels as if neither O’Brien nor Richter have their hearts entirely in the endeavor--and who can blame them?
