    this makes me so sad! [​IMG]
    coco's monologues have gotten longer and generally aren't as good, but he's still a better interviewer and talk show host than leno!

    when this happens, I sure hope Conan gets picked up by another network and put on a show on the same slot and beat Leno's ass.

    Conan will never beat Leno, let's be serious.

    Edit: Oh and I don't just say that because I'm a Leno fanboy (I'm not). I just don't think Conan has the draw Leno does, and he likely never will.

    That sucks for poor Conan. I also wonder if Jay doesn't have the taint now. Once you stop watching someone, how likely are you to start again?

    I thought Jay's Tonight Show was horrible, think his current show is horrible, and would not watch him at either 10 or 11:30.

    Now they're talking about Leno at 11:30 for a half-hour followed by Conan at 12:00. Its pretty sad how badly NBC is screwing up this whole thing. Then again, the decision to move Leno to 10:00 in the first place was idiotic.

    Way to destroy the Tonight Show, NBC. It's just been on for 56 years.

    Did Leno hide in a closet to listen in during an NBC executive meeting for this too?

    It's a matter of scale, really. Leno's ratings at 10 aren't far off his ratings at 11:30, but his ratings at 11:30 were far, far less than the numbers NBC has traditionally pulled at 10. Affiliates depend on the 10 p.m. show to lead into the money-making local news, and they're extremely unhappy that Jay has been dragging them down. Particularly alarming is that Leno's show has been attracting fewer viewers than some of the shows on cable nets such as Bravo. That's shocking for one of the big three networks.

    NBC knew Leno would never draw the numbers that a scripted program would, but they thought he'd do better than he has, and that the cost savings would balance out the loss of viewers. But the whole plan has backfired. As it stands, Leno's ratings are in the tank, local affiliates' 11 p.m. news ratings are in the tank, and the Tonight Show ratings are in the tank. Things have turned out about as poorly as they could have.
