Conan Speaks -- Sets Up NBC Departure?

By admin Published: January 12, 2010

Here's a link to a story, and a statement from Conan O'Brien, in which he says he won't go along with the plan to move "The Tonight Show" back to 12:05 a.m. Sure looks as if he is ready to jump networks, since NBC's proposal to put Leno at 11:35 p.m. makes clear that it doesn't want Conan at the earlier time, regardless of what the show is called. And he rightly takes NBC to task for impatience with his performance.

This whole deal has been a mess, and continues to be one -- although, if Conan leaves, NBC can put Leno back in charge of an 11:35 "Tonight Show" (Leno willing) and act as if the last 17 weeks never happened. Which is about as delusional as believing that a low-rated 10 p.m. show five nights a week won't tick off affiliates.
