NBC OFFICIAL: Done Deal. Jay Leno gone at 10PM on Feb. 12th, back to "Tonight Show" at 11:35. Conan, up in air. Also, NBC brass clueless.
I'll watch Conan wherever he ends up, but that really sucks.

Unbelievable. Is anyone surprised the whole 10 PM experiment was a complete failure? And now Conan will be thrown under the bus. Just complete ineptitude.

Fucking ridiculous. I hope theres a backlash and Leno tanks at 11:35 as well. Conan should go head to head with him on a different network. Fuck Leno

I agree...fuck Leno...why did he ever agree to the deal in the 1st place...? and Conan and ALL his staff uproot all their families to move to California, just to have NBC treat them in this manner? bullshit! Conan didn't even have a year to get in sync before NBC starts messing with him? I would be super pissed if I were him

From what I've heard, he most definitely is super pissed. I hope he takes the Fox deal and runs.

Has anyone considered the possibility that the reason Leno's ratings are tanking is because people don't want to see him and are sick of him? I know I am! So why move him to the prime spot? It's not fair to Conan. They need to get a clue that maybe Leno's time is over. Let him go.

I'm very surprised by this development. Conan was waiting in the wings for years to get the Tonight Show slot. He finally gets it and just a few months later they push him out? That's some serious bullshit.

He must have been pulling awful ratings. If not, this seems like a completely shady and unfair move by NBC.

They tried to please both Leno, who had the highest ratings of any of the late night hosts by the time he "retired" from The Tonight Show, and Conan, who would've undoubtedly jumped ship for another network if he didn't have a more prominent role.

The biggest problem to me was that Leno still got the same high-profile guests he'd get on The Tonight Show, Fallon got all of the cool B-lister and alterna-types that Conan would get on Late Night, and The Cone Zone got stuck with a whole slew of lame guests.

Half-hour Leno going into Conan then Fallon with no Carson Daly is fine by me, as long as The Tonight Show gets the attention it deserves, not Leno's piece of shit show.

Leno retired from the Tonight Show cause he didn't want to do it anymore, NBC panicked that they would lose Jay's audience to Letterman and brought him back for the prime time show. They promoted the hell out of that while Conan languished on The Tonight Show when he needed the promos.

Also, Conan's show just worked better in New York. He's a New Yorker. It makes sense. NBC has been worried from the start that Conan's particular brand of humor wouldn't work earlier with the older crowd. Which has kind of been a self-fulfilling prophecy with most of the older demographic watching Letterman instead as evidenced by the ratings.

I'm sure Conan feels some level of loyalty to NBC after working for them for so long, but he should do what's best for him and his show and his career: Take the Fox deal and run.

Yeah, but Fox kind of sucks. I don't really want Conan heading over there.

Leno has to be one of the WORST interviewers I have ever watched....he never gives the guest a chance to answer his lame ass questions before he trys to make "comedy" out of what they are saying....why do these guests agree to go on his show? he needs to be dumped! or put him on after Conan and Jimmy Fallon...that seems to be the best resolution

Leno is a little fucking baby. He made his bed. It didnt work out. Your fault. Instead he indian gives the 11:30 spot and disrupts hundreds of hard working people in the process. fucking unfunny douche

No, from what I understand, Leno did not want to leave the Tonight Show -- he was pressured to leave so NBC could keep O'Brien.

Yep. Ended up screwing everyone over.


Oh, and I generally like Conan, but hardly ever watch him now because I so dislike Andy Richter. I don't find him at all funny and can't stand his voice. Ugh.
