Conan O'Brien Is Following Who?

Posted: 04:42 PM ET


Though the Conan-Leno-NBC saga came to an end in January, the former "Tonight Show" host is making waves online, and an unexpected beneficiary of the attention is using her fame to do good.

In late February, Conan O'Brien joined Twitter, using the opportunity to make jokes about his unemployment (he claims to watch Remington Steele naked while eating cereal during the day). Last week, he decided to follow one person, seemingly at random. He chose Michigan native Sarah Killen, known on Twitter as @LovelyButton. Since then, Killen has gained over 16,000 followers and is now a bona fide ce-web-rity in her own right.

As a recent interview from explains, she's using this fame to raise money for breast cancer research.

Conan O'Brien is simply a comedy writer who apparently stumbles when it is he who is delivering his own material. After countless jokes about his hair, he simply ran out of material to plead the tiny audience to laugh about.

About the only loud laughter that came out of his audience towards the end of his hosting, came when he did a face plant on the tonight's show stage during yet another botched comedy skit.
