    I guess I just don't understand how people can not like conan.

    Like we where talking about this whole thing and work and everyone who I consider cool where like "Man Jay Leno just isn't funny, Conan rocks" even one of the 45 year old managers who grew up with Leno likes Conan more. But then theres these two guys who...well there not like rednecks or anything but there as hillbilly as you can be out here, there all "NO WAY! Leno is amazing Conan sucks"

    I just don't get it. What where people watching?

    Can't you see it in my eyes, I'm the one I'm the ONE TWO THREE FOUR I'm not like the other guys, (he's not like anybody, well..) That's not completely right There's a few that I'm just like Steven and the Stevens, We're gonna make you smile. Me, myself, and I and him, Are all the same guy.Steven and the Stevens, Come on now don't be shy. Me myself and I and him (That's me!) Are all the same guy.

    You really aren't giving him much credit. His speech is what you would call a positive spin.

    People at the Golden Globes where like that. At lunch today I saw Inside Edition because it was on at the restaurant and they tried to talk to a bunch of NBC people and there all like "No opinion. I'm just glad to have work."

    Interesting. We've been waiting to hear Leno's position on all this, his silence over the last week seemed to only fuel the media's vitriol. I was honestly surprised at how positive he was towards Conan.

    However, I still believe NBC's best step forward was to just cut Leno loose and buy him out instead of Conan. This current situation is only going to destroy both of them further. :(

    The thing is, Jay Leno can't say anything bad about Conan, really, and expect anything good to come of it. It's questionable how much of this was Jay's doing and how much of it was the network's, but there's no question that Conan is getting screwed here. Throwing any shit at Conan would pretty much ruin any goodwill people had for Leno.

    Norm on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire was pretty amazing. One of the best parts was towards the end, where he's going for $500,000 and he's sitting there thinking through it, talking through and kind of out of nowhere just goes "Oh! Calcutta!, Final Answer" before Regis can make a worried face or talk him out of it. Regis looks so terrified, I think he had a small heart attack.

    Yes, but network executives don't get where they are by being open minded and rational.

    They are stubborn, thick headed creatures.

    And besides, I doubt Conan would want the job at this point even if they offered it to him. The relationship between them is damaged and there will never be trust between them. You'd basically have to reorganize the NBC executive staff and axe all the heads who were involved with this in order to move on.

    Maybe CBS and ABC
    Remember this was a few years ago when Letterman wasn't doing so well and Conan was at 12:35

    I feel like Conan and Fallon do their part to mix up the game, but Leno just plays it safe. The worst part of all this is I may never actually see Tonight Show in person.

    Oh, and Bucketman, you're mixing up "were" and "where" as well as "they're," "there," and "their." I hope you don't take this the wrong way, just looking out :)

    Conan's people were still trying to talk NBC out of the whole thing even as they were bargaining for his release. It's honestly not in his best interests to stay, especially the way things are right now at NBC, but it's still the Tonight Show. I think if they were to come up to him right now and say he can keep the 11:35 slot and still do the Tonight Show, he'd probably accept.
