Conan O’Brien might be out of a job come March and it looks like good old Jay Leno is back on. As much as we absolutely adore the self deprecating musings of our favorite ginger, the ratings at NBC are telling a different story altogether. The writing is on the wall — Conan O’Brien is stinking up the 11:30 pm time slot. Oh, how the network misses what Jay Leno did for late night.
more Conan after the hop…
After the Olympics, the networks is plopping Leno back at the 11:30 time slot, sources have told TMZ.com. However, nobody is 100% sure what this means. Conan O’Brien could get fired altogether, or Jay Leno could only yammer to the audience for a half-hour and Conan wold resume a late late night spot like he did for over a decade.
Regardless, we hope Conan doesn’t get kicked off the air entirely. He makes our evening. Always has, always will.
