    Stewart needs the freedom of cable, IMO.

    Of the 3, Fallon's show is my favorite.

    It's Official: NBC Canceling Jay Leno's Prime-Time Show

    By Cynthia Wang

    Sunday January 10, 2010 02:00 PM EST

    Jay's walking off prime time.

    Confirming days of rumors, Jeff Gaspin, the chairman of NBC Universal Entertainment, on Sunday announced that starting Feb. 12, The Jay Leno Show will no longer air at 10 p.m. but that the network hoped to keep Leno for an 11:35 p.m. show, Conan O'Brien for 12:05 p.m. and then Jimmy Fallon after that.

    But, Gaspin adds, "It's not a done deal yet."

    Gaspin admits that The Jay Leno Show "did not meet affiliate needs" but that through it all, Leno and O'Brien have been "incredibly gracious and professional."

    "Beyond that is a private conversation and when it all settles, you can talk to them about that," Gaspin says. "We're back in conversation tomorrow."

    When asked why O'Brien would choose to remain at NBC with other networks interested in him, Gaspin says, "Conan's motivation will become more clear as time goes on. We gave something important to him, which was The Tonight Show, made it clear that it was moving with him. Conan wanted the franchise of The Tonight Show; Jay wanted to tell jokes at 11:30. Still things [need] to be worked out."
    I hope Conan agrees to the move to 12:05am and everything works out from there. I never watch anything live, but rather record it, so I don't care what time it comes on.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    I don't know what everyone's contract says, but I kind of hope Conan tells NBC to go screw and then jumps to another network.

    I'd love to see Conan jump to a cable network.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I think Conan will end up on CBS after Dave. Just a hunch. What kind of ratings does Ferguson get? I can't imagine they would be very good.

    Sounds like NBC just continues to screw things up. It sounds like they are trying to keep everyone happy which is what got them in this mess to begin with. I think they have to realize that someone is going to get the short end of the stick and then pull the plug on that guy.

    And what in the world are they going to put on every night at 10 pm? Barney Miller re-runs?

    I think Conan sucks it up and accepts whatever NBC gives him. He'll never get another contract like that one.

    I think Conan ends up on Fox. They want a late night show, and have the $$$ to pay him. He'll probably tell NBC to take a hike.

    I'd watch that. Sounds like they are going to put a lot of pilots on there.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.

    Funny how one wrong move can lead to series of bad moves. Not offering the Tonight Show to Letterman gave CBS an "in" on late night, which NBC owned for years.
