For about five minutes there, it was as if Conan O'Brien had never gone away.

The incoming TBS host's Show Zero, meant to rev our engines for the Nov. 8 premiere of Conan, came and went online in the blink of an eye—but it still served its purpose.

One corny monologue joke, guest Jim Parsons ("great to be here, goodbye"), musical guest Steel Train (they played the first chord off their new album), a quick plug for Diet Coke and the Dancing Taco were really all that were needed to assure us that O'Brien hasn't lost his touch.

See ya next week, CoCo!
