Popularity of Conan Vs. BearMany of you if not every one of you knows that the popularity of Conan Vs. Bear is pretty high. Who isn’t familiar with the Conan Vs. Bear website, a humor website also designed to be a fan website for Conan O’Brien, the host of the Late night Talk Show. The concept of Conan fighting a bear is rather strange but it caught on with the worldwide public really fast; all kinds of scenarios were imagined: Conan marrying the bear, which was dressed as a bride, Conan fighting an intergalactic war against the bear and so on and so forth. Many representations were less symbolic and more humorous, but that added to the popularity of the concept.
O’Brian was Jay Leno’s guest on The Tonight Show and then, in 2009 he took over the show from Leno. Later in 2010 talks of moving Leno from prime time back to a late night hour caused debate over whether Conan should move his show or not. He announced that he would not. This is when both the fans of Leno and those of Conan O’Brian launched the concept of Conan vs. Leno or Jay Leno vs. Conan. Finally, Conan O’Brien terminated his being a host of the tonight show and about a month later Leno resumed his position.
This public debate concerning the two celebrities only added to the popularity of Conan Vs. Bear as fans all around the world were paralleling this debate to the Conan vs. Bear legendary fight. Even before this debate on who should get that specific airing time the fight between Conan and the bear was inflaming people’s imaginations, but when the metaphorical fight involved two of the most famous TV. show hosts in the U.S. the heat was raised by several degrees and the hottest subject of the day became Conan Vs Jay Leno.
