Jay Leno Wants To Be Conan O’Brien

A day after Conan O’Brien told NBC to go fuck themselves, Jay Leno is now reportedly wanting out of the network as well. Why? I don’t know, to be a little bitch? Rob Shuter over at Popeater reports:

Sources close to former ‘Tonight Show’ host Jay Leno tell me he is furious with the way NBC has treated him and Conan O’Brien and is considering walking away from the entire mess with his head held high. “Now that Conan has made it clear he is leaving the troubled network, Jay is considering doing the same. They have put Jay in a terrible position. It looks like he is the reason that Conan is now without a job. Jay is a great guy and it’s not fair that due to NBC’s stupidity he looks like the bad guy,” a TV insider tells me. “Plus, what happens when Jay does return to the 11:35 slot if his audience doesn’t immediately follow? How can he possibly trust the same network that canceled Conan after only seven months?”

So basically, in 2004, Conan O’Brien was promised The Tonight Show after Leno retired. Well, Leno “retired” in 2009 then immediately hosted a show in prime time that failed like a turtle taking a calculus exam. NBC then, only after 7 months, told Conan that after waiting 5 years for the 11:35 time slot, they wanted Leno back. Conan told them to kiss his ass. Leno of course helped shove Conan out the door, so why all the feigned concern for Conan now? How can I get women to talk to me? I don’t know what that has to do with anything at NBC, but it would really help me out, man. I’m so lonely!

Jay Leno Got Canceled

After only five months, NBC has canceled the primetime The Jay Leno Show due to poor ratings. US Magazine reports:

“Starting Feb. 12, The Jay Leno Show will no longer air at 10 p.m.,” network chairman Jeff Gaspin said. “While it was performing at acceptable levels for the network, it did not meet our affiliates’ needs, and we realized we had to make a change. My goal right now is to keep Jay, Conan [O’Brien] and Jimmy [Fallon] as part of our late-night lineup.”…”I think you have to take chances. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t,” Gaspin admitted…Gaspin said he proposed “that The Jay Leno Show move to 11:35, The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien move to 12:05 and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon would then start at 1:05.”

After a September debut which drew 18.4 million viewers, The Jay Leno Show has been like an airplane flying into a mountain after it got hit by Godzilla’s tail. Instead of Jay Leno sitting in a chair giggling through asinine questions, they should have just had a closeup of a wooden Indian with a duck on it’s head for an hour. I’m almost positive the ratings would have been the same.
