Sunday Funnies

Last week all hell broke loose respecting the late night slot on NBC.  Jay Leno lost his prime time spot and a huge battle erupted over who would retain the coveted 11:35 Tonight Show.  Editorial cartoonists had a field day...

While I'm a bigger Leno fan than an O'Brien fan it sure seems Conan is getting screwed either way. Too bad there's so much ego involved on both sides because you can bet Conan isn't be turned out to pasture for nada!

Don: I think the NBC suites are to blame. First they squeezed Leno our prematurely and settled Conan in. Then, they thought they were so smart to save money by using Leno at 10 instead of a prime time show. Bunch of douches.

Meh, I'm a Letterman fan.

Me-Me: Shh. Me too.

If it doesn't cost much to produce the early Leno show, give it more time.

Why didn't the NBC execs just ask me?

*yawn*

Quirks: Works for me. And some times I was even able to stay up late enough to see him!

HA,HA,HA!!!! HEEHEEHEEE HA!!!
WHOOOOOOOOO! I can't get over
the funnies! HA,HA,AAAA,HA,HA,HA,HA
I'm neither a Leno nor an O'Brien fan.Those funnies are what got me.HA!
The Peacock cartoon is so right on.

We don't have cable anymore (by choice), but when we did, I always enjoyed Conan more than Jay. I liked watching Letterman and then Conan. I'd like if they went back to that myself...maybe we'd get cable again. :)

I like Conan and Letterman too. It's been a real circus this past couple weeks, though, so I'm glad it's over and Conan can wipe away his tears with the 30 million NBC is giving him to just go away. Way to go big guy!

I just watch Chelsea Lately instead of Leno or Conan. No controversy about time slots or ratings there. However, I do think Conan is getting the short end of the stick, especially now that his ratings are going up ironically enough.

Donna: Hey, I look for the best. Some are simply priceless.
nonamedufus said…
UR: There I times I still see the early, awkward Leno. Remember when he first started the Tonight Show? He was simply terrible at interviewing.
nonamedufus said…
Tgoette: I wouldn't be surprised if Leno's ratings dropped.
nonamedufus said…
Staci: Yeah I think Conan got the short end of the stick too. It was NBC execs who pushed out Leno from the Tonight Show slot and announced before he'd even left who was taking his place.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
