Trivia

In January 2010, NBC announced that Jay Leno, host of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), from whom Conan O'Brien took over the role as host, would have his not-so-well-received The Jay Leno Show (2009) move towards the 11:35 PM time-slot and that The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009) would be pushed back to the 12:05 AM time-slot. "The Tonight Show" has never aired that late during its almost 60 years on air. Furthermore, this push-back would have meant that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (2009), follow-up to O'Brien's own Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993), would also have been pushed back to a later time-slot, too. When The Jay Leno Show (2009) was officially canceled and it became clear that Leno would get his own new show at 11:35 PM, O'Brien released a statement in which he made clear that he didn't like how NBC handled the situation. He also stated that he wouldn't continue hosting The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009) if it was pushed back to a later time-slot. Eventually that month, it was officially announced that Leno would get "The Tonight Show" back on March 1st and that O'Brien will receive a severance payment of about $33 million from NBC.

Conan is SO FUNNY!
16 October 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

First I want to say that Conan appeals to me much more than Leno or Letterman. And I think he did a great job of the show while he had it for that short period of time, which will in no doubt go down in history as a miserable mistake by a network that shoots the victim to stardom. I mean you can say it is the worst thing that could have happened to Conan, he finally got the show he wanted after a decade of loyal hard work with NBC on the Late Night show...and then he gets screwed over...but if anything that has made him even more popular, its funny actually, his misfortune may actually turn out to be his good luck. This is the very kind of thing he makes jokes about, so ironic.

Now let me address the people who give him a below 50% rating. Are you Dumb? There's really not much to say. If you think Leno is smart than boy i do not want to know you. In case you have never done any reading in your life, which is probably the case if you love Leno and hate Obrien, Leno never went to school, he just started doing stand up comedy and he was good at it, Obrien went to Harvard where he wrote for the paper there and then we started off by writing skits for many famous shows including the Simpson's, so don't say that Obrien isn't smart and he does stupid jokes...if you don't understand them then its probably cause your too stupid to understand them.

And people who say his show wasn't getting good enough ratings...HELLOO!!! its a transition period! There is a pretty large style shift in comedy, people need time to accommodate, no host of the tonight show has ever been a hit right from the beginning, Obrien was entitled to be given a fair chance at being accepted by the public, and he was denied that.

I initially like Leno as well, but after his dick move with NBC I hate him. What kind of person are you when you steal a job from another man, hold it for DECADES, make MILLIONS and make one of the largest car collections in the world by a single private owned, say that your retire and give your job to someone else...and then be OK with taking that job back!?!?! have you no dignity Leno? No pride? Even if NBC wasn't satisfied with Obriens ratings and they wanted him gone, don't accept your job back! Have some decency! Anyone who is still a fan of Leno after that...well quite simply YOUR whats wrong with our society, no ethics! Leno is a dumbass, he should have completely left the scene after the Tonight Show, not try some new half assed show! How many successes have major actors had AFTER their role that made them famous? Friends, Seinfeld, Etc etc. Often people who get a big break and get a kickass role, will likely not get that lucky again, and Leno was old and full of cash, start fundraising or contribute to the community! Why the F would you try some new stupid show? Is that what other Tonight show Hosts did? Just goes to show that a sleazeball he is and how big a puppet he is for NBC. Im glad Conan left, now he has a shot at beating Leno directly and he will. Cheers!
