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.
nonamedufus said…
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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
