Okay folks, im sure most of you heard about what's going on at nbc regarding their late night line up. who's to blame? conan o'brien or jay leno? your thoughts.
I blame NBC personally. Conan could have been a little more mature about it.
i do agree with you there about how nbc is responsible for this mess. however, i don't know if i agree on conan, as im on his side of this 100 percent.
i mean think about it. you've been busting your arse for years for a company, then when they finally promote you. they decide to demote you just because the other guy wants his old job back. wouldn't you be a bit ticked off too? i know i would. that's why im hoping conan sticks it to jay leno, whenever he gets his own show somewhere else. that would be cool.
plus, after all this, im NEVER going to watch jay leno again as he's clearly a giant baby to me now.
NBC. They should have been smarter than this. They moved Leno into a primetime slot where he'd have to compete with all of the other network's top dramas. They moved Conan into the Tonight Show slot, which competes directly not only with Letterman, but also The Colbert Report. I think they overlooked the fact that Conan and Colbert have pretty much the same audience; they even did cross-promotional stuff on each other's shows during the writers strike. With a poor lead-in from Leno and losing some of his core viewers to Colbert, Conan was bound to fail.
Poor decision by NBC...all the way around...but I know Conan will still be a factor with late-night shows for as long a run as Carson...Didn't he get picked up by another network?
Someone compared this network decision to when they changed the Ol' Coca Cola flavor to New Coke (Bombing-Big Time!) for no reason. All businesses need to change/and or improve to thrive...However:
Important Management Theory to take heed of at all times:
"If it ain't broke...don't fix it!"
Everybody is wrong here, I am the one who is at fault here, and if you don't believe me, ask my hubby, he thinks everything that is botched is my fault today.....lol
I agree with that the people behind NBC, the producers, and, the people that back them are to blame by what is going on there. To blame Jay or Conan is kind of pointless.
However, I do think that moving the leno show back to it's regular timeslot isn't going to change anything. The only thing it might do is open that spot up for a new show, which I heard might to be another crime drama. ICK!
The only winner in all this is Conan. He gets to leave a show that isn't doing very well, and walk away with 30 million dollars. If I were in that position, I would have said yes to 30 million too.
I never got into any of those talk shows, so it really does not bother me or concern me who started it..
sorry, just being honest

Is it just me, or is the idea of NBC moving The Tonight Show to 12:05am (where it is no longer even "tonight" but "tomorrow morning") to accommodate Jay Leno Retarded with a capital "R"?Conan must be extremely flattered that Fox wants him. I'd be surprised if he takes...

Jay Leno, good riddance, or will you miss him?It feels like dejavu, Leno is retiring from the Tonight Show. Last time out poor Conan got screwed royally. Are you happy to finally see Leno go? Do believe he will go quietly, or is he simply wiping Conan's blood from the blade that he will soon plunge...
