Andy Richter, having had some time to get some perspective on the whole Tonight Show shitshow, feels that everything has worked out for the best:
It took awhile for me to feel we weren’t missing out on the best-case scenario for us not doing The Tonight Show. I have definitely changed. I think we’re much better off here doing this show than we would be if were doing The Tonight Show. For awhile, I felt like, “Well, we’re gonna go somewhere else, we’re gonna do a show somewhere else, that’s great. But if I had my druthers, I’d still rather we’d have been able to continue on The Tonight Show.” I don’t think in terms of the quality of our lives and the quality of our work, that that would have been the best thing for us in the long run. I think that we’re gonna live a lot longer, we’re gonna be a lot happier, and we’re gonna do a lot better work where we are now. I just think that the atmosphere here is more conducive to good living.
