Recalling Funnier Times

There are plenty of news stories out today about the fate of Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien on NBC. It looks like Leno’s 10:00 PM show is going on hiatus in February. What happens next is not entirely clear yet. TMZ reports that Leno’s show will move to 11:30 and be a half-hour long, which would push The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien back to midnight. Conan, however, is not happy about this and may decide to bail on NBC.

A similar situation occurred almost two decades ago when Leno was offered the Tonight Show job and Letterman, who most considered the heir to the throne, bailed for CBS. Sigh.

Stay tuned.
