Conan O’Brien > Jay Leno, NBC = F’d

Between Conan O’Brien and Jay Leno, I liked O’Brien’s style of irreverent humor a lot more. I guess it’s a generational thing but Leno’s jokes just weren’t funny to me. So when NBC handed the reigns of the Tonight Show over to O’Brien, I thought it was great. To be honest, I rarely watch the late night shows because I’m usually asleep by them (or watching Sportscenter before I go to sleep) but I was still a little annoyed when NBC took the show away. They were claiming that O’Brien’s ratings numbers were worse than Leno and that they were giving the show back to Leno. Ultimately, Conan got paid big time but it was still a crappy situation that bordered on ludicrous.

Well, it turns out that Leno’s ratings aren’t that great after all.

The reality is that you can get your share of entertainment whenever you want, such as when you’re trapped at work. You don’t have to watch an hour long show for a few moments of potential humor at 11:30 if you know you can just get the awesome highlights tomorrow.
