    In true Conan fashion....

    Re: Conan's Response

    It appears this was not Lenos decision. He doesn't seem pleased either.

    Conan O'Brien is a class act.... I liked him before, but after reading that I like him even more...

    Yea, if you saw his speech on his last night on Late Night I don't know how you can't feel a little heartbroken for what's happening to the guy.

    Re: Conan's Response

    I'm not sure why they don't just name Jay the substitute host and have him fill in for Conan when he is away. Isn't he close to retirement anyway?

    I meant class act how he is stepping down to preserve the Tonight Show, not for taking it gracefully.

    And I did hear everything he said, and quite frankly, thought it was hilarious. He has a right to be ******, they only gave him 7 months! Leno was behind Letterman in rating for like his first two years or something and they didn't try to bring back Carson.

    The problem seems to be affiliates not liking whats going on with Leno's show. Well, I am no rocket surgeon, but I could have told you that a 9 p.m. talk show wasn't going to work out. You have to compete with CBS' highly rated 9 o'clock line up. It just wasn't going to work.

    Re: Conan's Response

    If Conan had kept the ratings lead over Letterman that Leno had built, this wouldn't be happening.
    It's a ratings business, and simply put, Leno beats Letterman, and Letterman beats Conan.
    As Jerry Seinfeld said this week, once NBC puts the cameras on you, it's up to you.
    Conan just didn't produce.

    Re: Conan's Response

    So based on this, would it be the assumption that Leno will take the Tonight Show back, Jimmy will stay with Late Night, and Conan will be out in the cold to possibly be picked up by another network?

    Conan's getting the high hard one sans lube.
    And I don't care what Leno says, he's happy. That guy is a backstabber.
