I’m kind of mesmerized by the whole late night drama going on right now. While I’m firmly planted on Team Conan, I don’t really fault Leno for this mess. Either way, it’s been comic gold. Here’s my solution. Local news -10:30, Leno – 11, Conan’s Tonight Show at 11:30. Everyone wins. NBC will get a leg up with early news. Leno gets a show. Conan gets the tonight show at 11:30. It could work!
Speaking of mesmerized, say what you will about his interview style, but I’ve always been a fan of Charlie Rose’s black background.
Hear what Jeff Zucker has to say. Straight from the horse’s mouth.
