Look at what Dick Ebersol had to say about Conan:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/01/1 ... 24449.html :x

Hmmm, I wonder what Jay's new show has done as lead-in to the news at 11 with his abysmally poor ratings? I know our news has dropped off and in turn lessening the TS's lead in. I wonder how Jay's Tonight Show would have fared if NBC had given Conan a 10 pm show and it performed as poorly....wonder if his ratings would also have suffered?

They're just making it easier to be angrier at NBC and the idiot execs.....and Jay. My respect for him is dwindling to near zilch.....

I wonder what Johnny Carson would say about The Tonight Show being moved to 12:05? :hrmpf:

I think the x factor is Jay.

Knowing Johnny, if Conan was after him with his own show and worthy of grooming (by being a good guest host), he would have handed the torch to Conan. I'm told that he was never quite happy with the Tonight show going to Jay - he really liked Letterman.

Jay is ambitious and hard-working. But there's an uneasy willingness to please coupled with a kind of narcissitic single-mindedness that he's developed as host of the Tonight show. He was one of the very best standups ever, but I can't watch any chat show he hosts.

I've never watched late night talk shows. I didn't even know Conan was hosting whatever Carson used to host.

The only thing I know of Ferguson is the clip with Ewan too. I'm a sucker for the accent so if I were going to watch any late night talk show I guess it would be his.

Craig comments pretty hilariously on the Leno/Conan/NBC fiasco: (Watch the video)

(One of the gifts I got my Mom for XMas this year was Craig's book (American on Purpose) and a standup DVD, (A Wee Bit of Revolution.)

I've never found Jay watchable. I used to love Conan late at night especially as a teenager. I'm way bummed for Conan. He should have said no, I agree with that. I found this interesting today.

I only watched a bit of the clip, because again.. I find Jay un-watchable.

I love Craig Ferguson!! Nice clip faith! Any kind of man dancing makes me happy. This is my favorite that he did.

Around 50 seconds is kind of hot. I also think the gratutious use of not one but two shark puppets makes it all the better. :wink:

DT! After Faith posted the Istanbul one I spent waaaayyy too much time watching Craig Ferguson clips on youtube. "He loves you" one was my fav too!!!!!

I think the dance move that starts at 50 seconds deserves a nickname not unlike "snake hips" :lol: and yes it is kinda hot. You know any man that can move on the dance floor can move OFF the dance floor too! :twisted: :snakeman:

Dancing men make me happy. :D

As this is all happening, I've been watching the Larry Sanders Show DVDs I got hubby for Christmas. I don't know if any of you know that show from the '90s but it was Garry Shandling being a late night talk show host. During the last season of the show he's being pushed out by the network and they're grooming John Stewart to replace him. It's pretty funny to see first hand the 'fictional' kind of back-stabbing and network control that goes on in that show, and see it happening at the same time in real life too.

If you don't know the show, here's a little taste...

Be warned, there is some strong language. :###:

Because I've just spent the better part of an hour watching Craig Ferguson clips, here are a few more:
