Late Night TV Chaos

The blog world is all in a dither about NBC's late-night shake-up. First, NBC outlined a plan to move "The Jay Leno Show" from it's 10PM time slot to an 11:35 time slot, moving Conan O'Brien's "Tonights Show" to 12:05. The reasoning, apparently, was because NBC affiliates were complaining that their 11PM newscasts were seeing lower ratings. The topic was brought up on pretty much every late night show. Conan came out and said he won't do the show if it's moved to a different time slot. The Web has come to the support of Conan, or "Coco" as he's known, calling Leno all sorts of names. The Consumerist is encouraging people to email NBC before he decides to bail and go to Fox.

Personally, I've always like Conan and his show far better than Leno, but this whole fiasco is just hilarious and shows how much pull Leno still has at NBC (and how little respect they have for Conan).
