This is to the Conan fans, here to trash Leno. I did my part for Leno & watched his show. NBC didn’t expect people to watch Leno but not care enough to watch Conan. Don’t be mad at Leno, NBC or people on this page. If you had watched Conan, this wouldn’t be happening. The decision was based on ratings. Why aren’t you mad at all the Conan fans who never watched his show?
TMZ Reporting Leno is Again Tonight Show Host & Conan is Out!!
Jay Leno has made a new deal with NBC, which gives him “The Tonight Show” from 11:35 – 12:35 … sources tell TMZ.
As we first reported, under the contract Jay had been working under, he was guaranteed the 10 PM hour. By moving him to 11:35, NBC was in breach of his contract and needed to negotiate a new deal. That is now done, sources tell TMZ.
So Conan O’Brien is out, and Jay is restored.
I’ve never actually watched Letterman because I’ve always watched Jay Leno. But I did see all over the news this week that he’s been very happy about the drama going on at NBC. He did the “Law & Order: Leno Victims Unit” skit & has made a lot of jokes about Leno.
Am I missing something here? If Letterman is still pissed about not getting The Tonight Show, he should probably get some therapy since it was almost 20 years ago. And I don’t think it helps his case that Leno beat him in ratings for 17 years. Doesn’t that in itself show that Leno was the better choice?
What’s even worse is that since Conan has taken over, Nightline has actually had better ratings than Conan or Letterman. To me, it seems like him bringing up old drama with Jay only makes him look worse. Obviously Jay’s reputation & ratings weren’t affected when he “stole” the show from Letterman.
The way that Conan has been trying to play the sympathy card, I think he’s probably going to act the same way Letterman has. It’s obvious he’s pretending to be another victim of Leno, instead of just admitting that Jay is better than he was. It’s driving me crazy how Conan keeps acting like Jay came out of nowhere & stole his job.
At the end of the day, NBC is a business & they’re going to make business decisions. It just seems like Conan’s Harvard education would help him understand his ratings compared to Jay’s.
