    I thought it was established that Leno can't be removed. That was only three years ago.

    Does this mean Fallon will replace Conan? Or will he get a late night gig on some other network like Lifetime or TLC after Leno cuts his stones off?

    I don't know what's more scary; the thought of Jimmy Fallon hosting the Tonight Show, or the fact that I'd be just fine with it.

    Sorry, not buying it. Leno's still at the top of the ratings and after the previous messiness, I don't think he's going anywhere until he himself chooses to do so.

    It doesn't matter to me I would rather watch a monkey on a rock before watching Leno.

    2015: Leno gets the Tonight Show back, with NBC having given Fallon 5 days to get ratings. Leno's two remaining living viewers rejoice.

    Leno blows his brains out (not shooting from the jaw) because he can't live with not being on TV.

    I'm not buying it either. Leno will be in until he wants to leave. The idea of "NBC execs" forcing him out after what happened in 2010 is unbelievable.

    I'm not sure why you're thankful.

    If you don't like Leno, fine---don't watch him. But apparently you like Fallon and you can already see him on Late Night, so I don't see how this is so much better for you.

    Obviously, the whole Conan getting booted off of the Tonight Show" was orchestrated by Fallon.

    The word is that Fallon planted the "Jay is retiring" story like Leno's Helen Kushnick did to Carson.

    I think NBC is much more desperate for ratings this time around. The network is failing and they have little to lose.

    Leno's standup is getting a bit old, but he doesn't write that stuff anyway. Hiring some new writers could help. What Leno is great at is interviewing. His conversations with guests are much more interesting then his monologue.

    I just thought of something - this might mean Carson Daly at 12:37. Oof.

    Actually, since Kimmel moved to 11:35, he's been doing pretty well in the ratings, and he's beaten Leno several times. It won't be long before Kimmel is consistently the top-rated late show.
    Really?!?! I like Leno. But his interviewing has always been his weak spot. Good interviewers make it sound like they're having a conversation with the guest, but Leno's style makes it painfully obvious that he's just following the script prepared as a result of the pre-interview.

    I love Fallon. But I don't really watch late night stuff anymore.
