So Jay's show tanking at 10 causing people to turn away from NBC early and thereby lowering Conan's numbers makes NBC execs think they should promote him. Brilliant!

Network tv listens to add execs and local affiliates...strange thinking though

I don't watch late night shows but I did watch Leno @ 10 twice. It sucked.

Conan is the ONLY good thing about the main network late night talk shows.

It would appear that the latest rumors about Jay Leno's prime-time show are actually true. Today Jeff Gaspin, the chairman of NBC Universal Entertainment, confirmed that The Jay Leno Show's last stint at the 10pm slot would be February 12, according to People magazine.

Supposedly, there's not any other concrete details yet, but in an ideal world, the lineup would look like this: Leno for an 11:35 p.m. show, Conan O'Brien for 12:05 p.m. and then Jimmy Fallon following that. But, Gaspin said: "It's not a done deal yet."

No one is quite sure if O'Brien will stick with NBC, or change it up. There's been talk of other networks vying for him to make a switch. After revealing the ideal lineup of Leno, O'Brien, and Fallon, Gaspin said: "Beyond that is a private conversation and when it all settles, you can talk to them about that," Gaspin says. "We're back in conversation tomorrow."

Gaspin seems hopeful that O'Brien will go with the flow and stay with NBC: "Conan's motivation will become more clear as time goes on," he said. "We gave something important to him, which was The Tonight Show, made it clear that it was moving with him. Conan wanted the franchise of The Tonight Show; Jay wanted to tell jokes at 11:30. Still things [need] to be worked out."

NBC is just plain stupid now, thank god they brought back Chuck but that was mainly due to fan support.

If I were Conan I would just bail on NBC, im sure there are plenty of networks that would pick him up in a heartbeat.
