Under Some Serious Influence
Conan issued a statement yesterday saying he won’t host the Tonight Show if NBC moves it to 12:05 AM. Personally, I thought it was extremely well written, and I applaud Conan for his decision. I’m sure it was ridiculously difficult for him to reach it.
Here was my favorite joke on the subject from Conan’s monologue last night:
You know, this is a true story, when I was a little boy I remember watching the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and thinking, someday, I’m going to host that show…for seven months.
The ball is now back in NBC’s court. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if they’re willing to let Conan slip away.
