I could care less. I haven't watched any of the late night shows in years. They aren't funny anymore. Jimmy Fallon is the least funny human being I can think of. It is wrong however for NBC to just switch things around. Leno's new show tanks in a HUGE way. All it is is the Tonight Show only earlier and not as good. Not that it was good anyway. Just let Leno retire, keep Conan and Fallon where they are, and, here's a crazy idea, come up with some decent programming for that time slot. NBC is at the bottom of the food chain for a reason.

He's allowed to change his mind all he wants, but at the end of the day it shouldn't affect things that were put into motion when he first announced his intentions.
NBC should have said "Sorry Jay, you wanted to leave, we had to move on" and left it at that. But they were afraid to.

Thats my point........ NBC has a long history of screwing people over when it comes to The Tonight Show.

Conan is the only late night show I watch, but I DVR his show, so it wouldn't make much difference to me if they bump him back a half hour. As long as that's all they do.
Conan's brand of humor is unique, and I can see how older audiences who dug Leno wouldn't be a fan of him.

NBC begged and payed big $$$ to jay to move to 10pm, Jay was going to call it quits. Why did NBC want Jay @ 10pm, because a Leno show episode cost aprox $400000, a reality show cost about the same $ (minimal cost), but an episode of a scripted (yeah reality shows are probably scripted too) sitcom or drama baselines @ 1.2 million. They tried to cheap out, and from the old addage you get what you pay for their ratings fell for the 10pm slot, destroying the news leading ratings, Conans ratings fell, as the migration to Letterman was on, and in general people have not been impressed w/ Fallon. Their own cheapness screwed them. I feel a little bad for Obrien, but I'm sure he'll be fine. A half hour Jay would be great, because w/ comercials he'll really be like 19 minutes, which is all I can take of him. Keep Conan where he is, He's not Johnny Carson good, but nobody ever will be. Fire Fallon, he's a waste of T.V. time. Let the local affiliates run infomercials or sydicated programs. NBC screwed themselves now the late night host and their employees are caught up in the washout. Also SNL has not been good for a long time, they should can it too.

Let me explain something, NBC doesn't care about Leno, O'Bryan or anyone else for that matter. They care about ratings. The better the ratings , the more advertising dollars. It is as simple as that. That being said, NBC making the move has little to do with the two hosts and their relationships with those guys. It all boils down to what they think is going to improve the networks ratings.

The sad thing is that Jay Leno's pay would not be cut if his show goes to a half and hour time slot (30 + million dollars a year) and O'Brien would get 40 million dollars more by default for being "forced" to move his time slot. Win-win for Leno and O'Brien but a big up your ying-yang for NBC. Like somebody indicated before there would only be 21 minutes of show if Leno went the 30 minute route due to the commercials involved. Leno already had it sweet before but damn with his pay NBC might put on even more commercials during his slot to compensate for the pay that he is getting. He is the one smelling like roses in all this fiasco!
