(SCROLL DOWN TO VOTE: WHAT DID YOU THINK OF CONAN'S FIRST SHOW?)

Conan O'Brien opened his first "Tonight Show" with a sketch that shows the host running from New York City to Los Angeles, where the "Tonight Show" is based. He was in a rush, but made time to visit the Victorian Doll Museum and ruin a Cubs game only to realize he left the keys to the new studio back in New York.

WATCH:

When he "arrived" on stage he poked fun at himself and NBC in his opening monologue: "I think I've timed this move perfectly: I'm on a last-place network, I moved to a state that's bankrupt and 'The Tonight Show' is sponsored by General Motors."

He also showed the audience his first Lakers game in which he had awesome seats, much like the other celebrities in attendance.

WATCH:

Many wondered if Conan's sketches would follow him from New York to Los Angeles, and they did. In addition to the cold open, O'Brien dubbed over the White House Press Conference introducing Sonia Sotomayor as Obama's Supreme Court pick with some interesting words from Joe Biden.

WATCH:

Will Ferrell was O'Brien's first guest. He called Liza Minelli a "Commie" and led the audience in a chant of "U-S-A" before singing Conan a goodbye song that confused the host. Ferrell explained himself saying, "Don't get me wrong. I'm pulling for you. But this little thing is a crapshoot at best."

WATCH:

Despite some mixed reviews, more people watched O'Brien's show last night than "Letterman" and "Nightline" combined.
