Who read the newspaper today? You all read the news. (No) Then you're going to love this, did you hear this? A bank reposessed OJ Simpson's car to help pay off his debts. That really happened. (Why?) Why? I'll tell you why. Today he was spotted hitchhiking really slowly with Al Cowlings.That joke, as well as much of the episode, provides evidence that the children were responding to the Applause sign with little sense of the meaning of the humor or the conventions of the talk show.
Richter: It's humiliating. As much rationalization as you can do and say "they're just children and they don't know who I am," you've got 700 human beings on stage screaming at you "Boring!" when you're a performer and it's your job to be interesting.In particular, watch the episode for "Naughty Land" (a holding cell for misbehaving children) and the taped segment in which O'Brien gives the kids a tour of the studio.
