    This. Leno was never a top-tier host for me. I preferred Jimmy Fallon, and that says something. His new show is just boring.

    Long live Conan, the NEW Oprah!

    I think its funny that Fallon is so bad at his monologue, that they had to shorten it. The longer it goes, the worse he gets.

    Good. Conan O'Brien isn't really good with opening monologues anyway. And Jimmy Fallon...oh God, just don't let him do the Late Show. Ever.

    Did you even read it? It says Conan gets bumped a half hour later for a 30 minute Leno show.

    I love Conan and cannot stand Leno, but I could be down with this. Leno's show as it is now is killing the ratings for everything after it - local news and the Tonight Show (this is why the affiliates are raging). Moving Leno back to 10:35 will likely lessen that drag factor and possibly even draw in some of his old (and I mean that both as "former" and "aged") audience. This may give Conan a better lead-in and improve his ratings. If it turns out like that it would be good for everybody, and I can deal with that.

    Although I still think Leno should stop being a baby and just retire already.

    Good point, another good thing is that if Conan is on later then maybe they can bring back some of the old Late Night sketches like The Masturbating Bear or Fake celebrity interviews.

    It cannot be stopped.

    It cannot be reasoned with.

    Leno will not retire.

    As long as I get my Headlines on Monday night, I am fine with whatever they do with the scheduling.

    NBC should never have messed with the way things were. If it ain't broke, don't fix it IMHO.

    So Leno will be a half hour now and start at 11:30 while Conan will start 30 minutes later at 12:00 (or so this is what NBC is hoping to do?) Well now the 10 timeslot will be open for new shows
