    Conan should run in 2012.
    Sure why not?

    STRONGER (David Gordon Green) - 6
    THE DISASTER ARTIST (James Franco) - 7

    It's actually a really good analogy. I'm going to start using that.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Shame. Well, that'll make me curious where Conan goes from here. Someone will pay him top dollar to do something. Maybe his own variety show?

    Whoa. Unconfirmed reports are saying NBC is looking for guest hosts for The Tonight Show. Already?

    If they're at all interested in trying to retain Conan, this is possibly a strategic move.

    Probably the idea all along.

    And it would make sense to have guest hosts. Why would NBC want someone that would completely trash them every night until the Olympics?

    Fuck you, NBC. You screwed over two of the best hosts you ever had.

    Carson would be ashamed.

    Leno sucks. Period.

    Carson would be, especially since he was very embarrassed the first time.

    Jay needs to do the right thing and walk.

    NBC deserves every thing that their incompetence has wrought.

    Fuck NBC. They deserve to have to go looking for some hobo off the street to host a Late Night show. Conan's letter is awesome.

    I think the Carson Daly comment is the best. Especially since he only pops up once. Seems to me that everyone has practically forgotten that he even has a show on NBC.

    Heard that before he released the statement to public on Tuesday, Conan announced his leaving to his staff first and he broke down crying as he apologized to them.

    So I've decided to give Jimmy Fallon another shot, and actually the Head Swap sketch was kind of funny. Whoa.

    My other take on why people are so pissed about Conan getting the shaft is because at some point or another, everyone has been screwed over by their boss. Especially in today's shitty economic climate, where higher ups have been getting bonuses still and big companies are getting bailouts they probably don't deserve, the idea of preserving even the smallest notion of fair play, a classic American belief, still reigns.

    I guess it's official now that Conan is out.

    Jay Leno argued NBC that his contract stated a 1 hour show, so he contested the half-hour timeslot and NBC gave him 11:35-12:35 back.

    Oh my god, what a fucking dick. Seriously, fuck his fucking face.

    Whoa, TMZ reported that. I'm going to wait and see what other, more factual based new sites, state. But it wouldn't surprise me if Leno agrees to such a deal, if it does in fact exist.

    Yup. No surprise that it's going to an hour.

    Well, I just hope Conan gets to do something awesome now.

    Curious what the reaction to Leno will be like now.

    Don't know how reliable this is, but apparently if Conan leaves, he might be in breach of his contract, which didn't specify what time slot his show would be in.
