Fuckin NBCConan O’Brien Says He Won’t Host ‘Tonight Show’ Following LenoI say good for Conan. If Jay was really worth it he would have had a hit at 10pm, he's not, drop the dead weight.

Jay's show is getting good ratings. Why drop it?

It's getting poorer ratings than what NBC wants, that's why they are going to move him back to the time he was last successful on. They just need to get rid of Jay and keep Conan, who is bringing in a younger demographic that's very loyal to him.

Its being moved because the affiliate stations were complaining about the poor ratings they are getting with there local news. Some affiliates normally broadcast there news at 10pm EST, While others at 11pm.

This is the reason. KING 5, the NBC affiliate here in Seattle, are just downstairs from us (really they are our sister station). They have been feeling the ratings crunch.

I've watched Conan since he first began with late night Hosting and this was fucked up of NBC to do. I wish him luck on whatever turns up next. It's not really Jay's of his show's fault since it was getting decent ratings for a new show and time. The damn affiliates!

Pretty much sums it up all too well. NBC was afraid of letting Jay go somewhere else and pose a threat to them. Now it could very well be both of 'em

I won't be watching Leno if he takes back the tonight show. I used to watch all three on a semi-regular basis. Now Leno can go fuck himself. I know it's not his fault, but he's the least funny of the three. His best segments rely on strangers to be funny for him.
