Quite simply one of the best quotes, EVER!


As for Leno, I hated him when he and his manager pulled their shit that drove out Letterman, and I simply ignore him now.  I've not watched a single episode of the Tonight Show since he's hosted it.

What really just baffles me is how NBC consistently caves to his demands.  What the fuck is up with that?

Conan's last night will probably be next Friday - The Tonight Show was going on hiatus because of the Olympics anyway. TMZ sez Leno worked out a deal that gave him 11:35 to 12:35.

lol

Also, Kimmel fuckin' maims Leno to his face. It was like the lite version of Colbert's white house press corps speech.

The Cone Bone has taken a pay out and will not be stricken from the public record as some had thought.

I hope he doesn't go to Fox because then he would fail horribly. As per the suggestion of gawker.tv, a fictional meta-show like the Larry Sanders Show would be optimal.

Nathan Rabin (usually of the A.V. Club) with some typically dead-on analysis:

Quote
To comedy writers, Leno’s massive success represents the triumph of mediocrity. It’s the tragedy of a prodigiously talented stand-up making a conscious decision to dumb down his material to reach the widest possible audience. He won over the masses while alienating comedy geeks. He came to symbolize everything crass and mercenary about comedy. As the years went on, Leno became synonymous with Monica Lewinsky and O.J. jokes. His name became shorthand for lazy, dumb and obvious comedy. To comedy snobs, “The Tonight Show” under his nightmare realm was one long Dancing Itos sketch.

Wonder if he drove that car around at all? He is still driving that same old early '90s Taurus with a wasp nest in the trunk, I would think he would have gotten rid of it by now. Maybe when he gets his millions of settlement dollars.

OK so I'm not sure why going to Fox is an unequivocally bad thing. Can someone explain that to me?

I understand that other talk shows they have had have been dismal failures but it's not like Conan isn't a proven entity. Unless he ended up having to acquiesce to an awful lot of network interference -which I can't particularly see happening considering the fact that his is a pretty lucrative personal brand and him & his team obviously know how to handle themselves, given that they just made filthy amounts of money out of getting the boot from NBC- there's no reason a new Conan show (whatever form that happens to take) couldn't succeed anywhere.

I thought his exit speech, of sorts, was really terrific and heartfelt. Thanking NBC for the 20 years he had worked there seemed really big of him and he seemed to choke up a bit when he thanked everyone for all the support - letters and internet tirades and even rallies. Ending on that note about cynicism, how it was his least favorite quality and how he implored people not to be cynical about the whole fiasco and said just be a good person and such could have been overly sentimental or cliche but the way he said it made it feel incredibly genuine and from the heart. What a cool guy! So sad to see him go, I grew up watching him afterall. Truly the end of an era. I doff my cap and all that.

Disagree. Not that I'm a huge Fox fan or anything, but it is pretty much the best choice for Conan.

Someone mentioned earlier a quasi-Larry Sanders show would be optimum but I couldn't disagree harder. Conan wants to stay on Network TV and a show like that would NEVER survive on one of the major networks.

Going to Fox, on the other hand, he goes to a staff that has an excellent time slot for a late-night host, wants the demo that Conan pulls in, and would have the money to allow Conan to struggle in the ratings for a few years until his show gets its voice against Leno and Letterman. And I think they WANT a potential late night competitor too bad to interfere too much with Conan's vision.

Or maybe they'll treat him like they've treated every Joss Whedon show post-Buffy.

I'd almost rather Conan take his show to cable than go to Fox.  If he did a late night show on Fox at 11:30pm to compete with Jay, he'd be following the Wanda Sykes Show (nothing against her, I think she's funny, but I don't know if he'd want to follow a half hour talk show), which follows Fox News.  AND going network means being subject to the same outdated Neilson Ratings System.  In its inception, Fox used to take some chances with programming, but these days they're as trigger-happy with cancellations as NBC is.  Conan's a smart guy.  I hope he figures out a way to be competitive without significantly compromising his show or his ideals.

And I agree about his farewell speech -- he kept it classy, but better than that, he was genuine.  How fucking rare is THAT on TV.

In the meantime, I would like Conan to appear in a sequel to Dr. Horrible.   :-D  Let's make that happen.

Somehow, I don't see Fox clamping down on Conan too hard if he decides to come over to them. He's proven his value already, and Fox has shown that some shows are given a long leash on stuff. (Case in point, The Simpsons and The Seth McFarlane Variety Hour-and-a-Half get away with a lot of crap against the network.)
