Conan the Programmer

He couldn't do any worse a job at programming than the suits at NBC

Somehow I missed all the promos for June's TCM Guest Programmer, Chris Isaak. To be honest, I haven't seen one for July's Guest Programmer, either, and that's coming up tonight. Late-night TV talk show host Conan O'Brien will be sitting down with Robert Osborne to show four of his favorite films. Those are:

Yankee Doodle Dandy, in which James Cagney wins an Oscar for playing George M. Cohan, at 8:00 PM;
The Roaring Twenties, a Cagney and Humphrey Bogart gangster film, at 10:15 PM;
Network, a movie that makes me mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it any more, at 12:15 AM;
and the Marx Brothers in Duck Soup at 2:15 AM.
