    I still cant believe NBC dumped Conan for a few more years of Jay Leno knowing that after those few years they were going to have to give the job to Fallon. Terrible.

    NBC will cough up about $15 million for Jay Leno as a sweetener to step down. While the payout sounds steep, its peanuts for Leno who rakes in far more money performing standup comedy in Las Vegas. Jay has been banking his NBC money for years, a knowledgable insider said. He lives off of his Vegas (money).

    Just win Phin baby!

    NBC is cutting their own throat - again, like they attempted to do replacing him with the quirky, acquired-taste ginger. They are trying to go younger demographics to compete with Jimmy Kimmel but Leno has such a wide and faithful following that after the non-compete ends (which I assume will be written into his golden parachute), he'll take his audience to Fox and again throttle Kimmel, Fallon and Letterman. Whether Jay is personally your cup of tea or not doesn't matter - he plays very well in Peoria. As an aside, knowing someone who actually works with Leno and also someone else who occasionally runs into and harleys with him on Mulholland some weekends including breaking bread at the Rock Shop, I've heard nothing but glowing reports about what a good, regular, approachable guy he is.

    I don't care what anyone says. Conan O'Brien should be given another shot at the Tonight Show. That is if the higher ups at NBC have changed. Fallon doesn't deserve that spot.

    Forgive my spelling. This was sent from my phone.
