The Tonight Show Troubles
Jay Leno IS making money for NBC BUT his weak lead-in to local news is costing the stations (in the NBC network) money in advertising dollars. It looks like NBC is willing to anger Conan O'Brien and move Jay back into his original slot at 10:30-CST.
Of course anyone can see what the solution is. Have Jay & Conan together host/co-host a show. This would kill Letterman in the ratings. They can have both guys come out and do a monologue,trying to talk over each other fighting for laughs. They can sit next to each other behind a desk and bombard the guests with 2 x the normally inane and "softball" questions. This would make for bizarre TV and "Must-SEE TV!
Just my 2 cents!
