Conan used to be better in the mid to late '90s, though. Since the turn of the millennium, he's become a caricature and he overdoes things. He's very fake. I don't like him so much anymore. Also, he's quite cowardly on political matters like when he kissed up to Giuliani after 9/11 like so many Americans. I honestly don't think he's that smart a guy, Harvard degree and all. He also loves cheesie shows.

From what I've read (rumors), they were basically pushing him out and assumed he'd go quietly.

Then he started negotiations with (I believe, ABC) for a show (supposed to air before Kimmel and compete with Dave and Conan) and I guess these rumors spurred NBC to step in and offer him that new show.

10 Eastern, 9 Central, the hour before the local news.
Dating back to the Letterman/Leno/Carson debacle of 92/93, NBC is notorious for screwing the pooch.

And basically Leno is a gigantic douche, so I guess it's no wonder he'd do something like this.

I thought that initially Leno said a while back that he'd only be there til 2009 and then leave. And then he started talking to other stations interested in him / new show. I agree with HIAS that Conan should be/is probably pissed. I think his show needs to stay in New York too. Why does the Tonight Show have to be filmed here in S.Calif.?

I've never been a Leno fan and occasionally only watch his show if there's a guest on I really want to see. I'd not watch any other show Leno would move to, certainly not another show at 10pm. Aren't there enough late night news/talk shows on the air already?

Wouldn't it be nice if they gave Jay and Conan the boot and just played nothing but Johnny Carson reruns. These boobs don't hold a candle to Johnny.

Bumping this because Conan is about to finish up with Late Night. Watching right now. Only two more episodes of Late Night With Conan O'Brien after tonight.

I caught part of last night's show, came in at the masturbating bear and Carrie Fisher. I missed Colbert. Have to check YouTube when I can find the time. I'm taping tonight's episode.

I think that skit was an old one just highlighted on the show last night. Never saw it before but it was hilarious!
Part 1: YouTube - funny star wars nerds part 1

Part 2: YouTube - funny star wars nerds part 2

and I agree - I think Conan belongs at 12:30am in New York.
