My own take on this situation? Both NBC and Jay Leno should be ashamed of themselves. Conan O'Brien should take his 80 million from NBC, not host a talk show for a couple of years, write a book, write a screenplay, do something fabulously funny with Andy Richter, hang out with his kids, and then come back to late-night on Fox in an 11pm slot and slaughter the competition.
Jimmy Fallon has of course been silent and totally professional concerning this whole thing; it's made me like him even more than I already did. But you know who I feel the most sorry for in this whole mess? Carson Daly. The poor man with his 7 head will be out of a job me thinks very soon.
