How did we go for so long without the Chinese explaining the day’s biggest stories for us thru the use of cheap animation?!? The same people that brought you the genious that was the Tiger Woods Crash and the NBC Showdown, now give you The Andy Dick Incident.
Conan O’Brien has released an official statement regarding the changes to the Tonight Show and the Jay Leno Show. It’s a very well written response and he shows a lot of respect and appreciation for both the Tonight Show and Jimmy Fallon. Here’s an excerpt:
“Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn’t the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.”
