Unless you’ve been living under a rock or not in the USA (yes it happens), you must have heard of the ‘Late Night TV scandal’ involving Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno and the bosses of NBC.

To clarify things watch this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJ9m1an-pQ8

Ok now you know. cheese

Tell me: Are you with Leno or with Coco? and why?

I don’t watch late night talk shows so it doesn’t really matter to me who is on. But the few times I’ve watched I don’t care a lot for Leno. He’s okay and funny enough, just not my cup of tea.  Conan, on the other hand, I find hilarious most the time.

I feel sorry for Conan in all this because he is really getting screwed over. He was named the heir of The Tonight Show when Leno retired. Leno announced his retirement and Conan was slotted in. Then Leno and NBC changed their minds and decided to make the 10:00 pm show. That had bad idea written all over it from the beginning. Now Conan is being screwed over because Leno couldn’t make up his mind and NBC makes bad decisions about their programming.

ON the bright side, though, I did really like the way Leno came out on his show and talked about the situation and praised Conan.

I don’t really care, but I am of the opinion that Leno has much suckage in him, don’t know about Conan.

Well, I must have been lurking under some rock.

I’m in favour of Conan the Barbarian having his own talk show.

Already did. Last time there was a “late night war”.

(I didn’t really care about it then, either.)

The video didn’t clarify things much for me, since it wasn’t in English.  I liked Leno on Monday nights, because of the “Headlines” segment, but the rest of it I didn’t really watch.  I’ve never liked Conan, though—I always thought he was just obnoxious.

Too bad there’s some kind of screwup going on at the network, though.

Obnoxious? Well, okay. At times he can be. But he was one of the best things to ever happen to the Simpsons.  And you have to admit that this segment is funny. Right? wink

As someone who doesn’t watch later night tv at all I couldn’t care which one went or stayed.  If theyw ere going to give me 33 million to depart though, I would probably grab it and run.  I could live quite happily for the rest of my life on that much.
