If anybody should be axed, it's Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon, although Conan should be put on probation. He's just doesn't seem to be as funny as he used to be when he was in New York. He needs to get Robert Smigel back on his writing team. Without Smigel, the "Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog" skits are nowhere near as funny as they used to be.

Leno had his day in the sun and I think he should move on. He must be sucking some serious NBC peacock if he gets his 11:35 time-slot back. Jimmy Fallon, on the other hand, is absolutely awful. I'm guessing he also sucked some serious peacock to get Conan's old time-slot. His show has shown some signs of improvement, but not enough to warrant for him to continue.

Boy, do I miss the days of Johnny Carson.

NBC should just exhume the bodies of Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon and return them to The Tonight Show. It would be more entertaining than having Conan or Leno.

Leno is the perfect Tonight Show host. The C word's ratings are below Leno in All Age Demos, so much for being younger and hipper, younger of course, hipper, not so much. The other reason 10 bombed was the lack of guests. An hour gets long with only one guest. Leno won the late night ratings for 15 years because he was outstanding. It was not a fluke.
The C word needs to take his cash and go somewhere else.

Conan has to go. Has tanked at that spot from the beginning. His humor (or lack therof) is totally flat. He is always primping like a highschool girl.He has wrecked the Tonight Show. Bring Jay back for a full hour and kick Conan to the curb!

To me, Conan O'Brien is a MUCH better talk show host than Jay Leno.. love Conan's humour, he makes me laugh but Jay definitely doesn't.

I think this is a horrible move from NBC. Conan has a huge fanbase, worldwide.

Jay was not funny at 10 & Conan was not funny at 11:35. Of the two I prefer Jay and Conan needs to go back to NY and perhaps another network. I don't think NBC is big enough for them both!

Jay should just retire and spend more time with his nutty, butt-ugly wife, Mavis, their mangy cat, and his car collection. He stand-up comedy is old, stale, and humorless.

This is a huge publicity stunt. It is obvious. They would never really move the tonight show to 12:05. That would make it the "tomorrow show", or the "morning show". It has to stay at 11:30... I think leno is retiring, and this is his way to help struggling Conan to get more ratings... Leno moved out of 11:30 to give it to conan. He made that staement 6 years ago, also saying he will retire at age 60... he wouldn't take that back, If NBC really moves the tonight show to 12:05, they would be digging their own grave... To prove this is all a publicity stunt, go the the NBC home page. they are showing a clip of Conan making a decision with the help of Deal or NO Deal .... NBC executives wouldn't allow their NBC.com home page contain conans threats to leave NBC. NBC is doing everything in their power to display conans statement everywhere, including MSNBC. I youtubed conan and there is a clip of anchors from MSNBC talking about his statement.

I agree with you. Leno is too dry and boring. Too straight laced and when a guest begins to be funnier-or talk more than jay he gets pissed.

Just axe leno. If Conan moves to another channel I will be there. I only watch leno now because he is not up against anyone else. Once he is on at the same time as someone else-I wont be watching.

I won't watch Conan anymore. He's too arrogant and thinks he is better than Carson and deserves the Tonight Show more than anyone else. What an ego!

i'm not able to see the tonight show with conan as the host--unfortunately, my cable provider doesn't carry the channel.

however, i did SO love conan on his former show,'late night.'

i did worry though, that the change of show and/or format might be a problem.

i'd be so sad if they axed conan.:(

my cousins and i just love him SO much.

he makes fun of his guests as letterman does, but not in a cruel way.

i agree with freecycle santa. conan should replace simon on 'idol.':)

Jay Leno should be ashamed of himself. What a mess hes making. Hell never recapture what he had. Let it go.

Lettermen wins.
