Late Night TV Rant

Bit of a rant, but this annoys me.

They've announced that Jay Leno's 10pm will be cancelled due to poor ratings. But they haven't decided if they will just pay him the remainder of his contract or move him back to the late night slot.

What a prima donna! That is SO unfair to Conan O'Brien. He left his successful show to do The Tonight Show. Moved his family and everything. Yes. ratings for The Tonight Show fell when he took over, but they fell when Leno took over for Johnny. Conan is THE funniest talk show host out there right now. (Sorry, Dave.) He has a huge fan base. I never watched The Tonight Show when Leno was on it, but I catch Conan every day on Hulu.

We'll see how this all plays out for Conan, but it doesn't look good.

Playoffs start today - maybe a couple good football game will cheer me up!

LOL, good rant. Makes ya feel better, doesn't it? Now for some good ol' gridiron to get over the grumps, hmm?
