Conan Comes to Los Angeles: The 99 Cents Only Store, Already Front and Center on "Tonight"
Above, Conan O'Brien discovers the joy of 99 Cents Only toilet paper. The host visits the famed store on tonight's inaugural episode of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien."
The 99 Cents Only Store visit is a part of a pre-taped package featuring Conan as he takes over a Universal Studios tram. He convinces the tram driver to take it off the lot and on the road -- and winds up at a nearby 99 Cents store. He brings out a haul of cheap goods for the tourists on the tram... endearing himself to potential viewers, one 99 cent item at a time.
