TMZ now reports that Conan O’Brien is being giving a choice: move The Tonight Show to 12:05 a.m. or leave NBC.
The only possible answer is that NBC is suffering from extreme delusions or has been placed under the influence of psychotropic hallucinogens. Though Conan has had trouble competing with Letterman since his show premiered, Leno’s ratings have been consistently worse and moving him back to 11:35 p.m. will only further alienate the younger Conan-loyal audience.
NBC is making a horrendous error by giving Conan this unnecessary ultimatum. Join Team Conan on Facebook and let your voice be heard. Tell NBC you will not stand for their sabotage of late night comedy.
