Leno didn't do anything to Conan. If anyone did, it was you and me. We did not give him enough market share to keep his show, or one could say he did not earn it from us.

I read an article yesterday, that the FOX deal was going sideways.

I hope he got a solid contract. This placement will not draw a very big audience.

Headache, from what I've read George Lopez called Conan to sell him on the idea, he's for it. Initially, Conan didn't want to displace anyone from their show, but Lopez is cool with it.

That's the first thing I thought of. It really is a very similar situation.

Not sure what to think of this, yet. Interesting stuff.

EDIT: Missed Diane's post. That makes things different and, if it's true, is a classy and admirable move by Lopez.

If only Conan were as accommodating and classy as George Lopez is, he might still be on network television.

Also, I wonder if Lopez's producer, director, writers and production staff are "cool with it".

I was wondering what happened to Conan. I'm glad to hear that he's going to be back on tv. I missed him.

Also, Leno is not funny, and never was. I'm a David Letterman fan, I watch him instead of Leno.

I'm sure they are, apparently they really support the idea of Conan being their lead in, and I read today that TBS has been seeing a great increase in 20 something viewer ship.

^I'm not trying to spin it, this is just what I'm reading.

I'm just trying postive, because unlike you, I do care (But that's fine if you don't)...because I'm looking foward to watching Conan again.

Being on basic cable isn’t quite the kids’ table it used to be, and the lack of network pressure on TBS and its basic-cableness in general might allow Conan and his writers unprecedented freedom on the show, an assuredly positive thing...so I'm pretty excited for Conan.

Don't know how this is hurting George Lopez, I finally have an excuse to watch his show now. Win/Win.

well... it would be interesting to see how the Lopez thing plays out... if he really was ok with the deal and suggested it, as he's saying, or if he's just being the good soldier.

i hope the first is true and that he's all on board, and even suggested the idea... because, as much as i find george lopez to be incredibly unfunny, it wouldn't be cool if conan and tbs did the same thing to him that leno and nbc did to conan.

and yes, leno could have said "no, that's not right for you to do that to conan" and walked away gracefully, and/or walked off to another network. he didn't. so nbc may have screwed conan more, leno did screw conan.



as long as it's all kosher.. and coco returns to new york city... then i'm all for it. i could care less about basic cable vs. cable. this isn't the 80's.
