Haha, good one Jay
Listen, I’m tired of writing about this late-night stuff, and you’re tired of reading about it. But bear with me, this one’s actually not about Conan for once. It’s about Jay Leno and his scheisty ass going into damage control now that Conan has rejected NBC’s plan to bump “The Tonight Show” to midnight. Check out this twisted version of reality from Popeater:
Sources close to former ‘Tonight Show’ host Jay Leno tell me he is furious with the way NBC has treated him and Conan O’Brien and is considering walking away from the entire mess with his head held high. “Now that Conan has made it clear he is leaving the troubled network, Jay is considering doing the same. They have put Jay in a terrible position. It looks like he is the reason that Conan is now without a job. Jay is a great guy and it’s not fair that due to NBC’s stupidity he looks like the bad guy,” a TV insider tells me.
“Plus, what happens when Jay does return to the 11:35 slot if his audience doesn’t immediately follow? How can he possibly trust the same network that canceled Conan after only seven months?”
Yes, poor Jay Leno. How can he possibly trust NBC after he helped convince them to push Conan out? Really, when you think about it, Conan’s the real bad guy here for having a spine. What a jerk.
