Conan vs. Leno: The Last Great TV Scheduling War

Conan vs. Leno: The Last Great TV Scheduling War | Tech Broiler |

"For those of you living under a rock this week or more concerned with people dying in the thousands due to a horrible earthquake, you might have missed the recent brouhaha caused by NBC television’s desire to move Jay Leno’s show, which is currently experiencing lousy ratings due to a perceived loss of his old core audience, back into his old Tonight Show time slot at 11:35PM, cut his show to a half hour long and shuffle the actual Tonight Show time slot a half hour ahead to 12:05. Got that? Ok.

Conan O’Brien, the host of the Tonight Show has effectively told NBC to go shove it — either he stays in the time slot that his show has occupied for the last 60 years, or he walks, presumably to somewhere else where he is appreciated."
