Conan O'Brien came to work Monday in an existential panic. In the successful broadcast of the Oscars, which has seen a sharp increase in the number of viewers while he had no animator, he found his own obsolescence.

"There was no host last night and the show went better! Ratings increased by 11 percent. So today, people were saying, "Maybe we do not need a host anymore?" Do you know what that means to me? Do you know how terrifying this concept is? All last night, I was as if I was turning around. "End of hosts! No host! The hosts are gone! '"- CONAN O'BRIEN

Then, O'Brien and Andy Richter, his sidekick, paid tribute to the most intimate moment of the awards ceremony, when Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper sang "Shallow" from the movie "A Star Is Born".

While Jimmy Fallon celebrated Monday his fifth birthday as a host, "The Tonight Show" has become a meta.

Ben Stiller does not take guff.
