Uh, yeah, we know that's not what happened. Leno never wanted to quit. So what? How does that make him not the villain? He still got his damn prime-time show, undermining Conan, and ultimately showing that he only cared about himself, and not the institution that was "The Tonight Show".

As Amnesia says, why is Leno the villain here?
O'Brien's ratings dropped like a stone months before Leno's primetime show premiered.
How did Leno engineer that?

He said that if Conan had a background in standup, he never would have let Leno get that 10 pm show. Every standup knows that if the guy before you is a bigger star, then no one will stay to see your set.
Technically, O'Brien's lead in was the local news.

I guess the point being there weren't enough true Conan fans to sustain his 11:30 bid.

I do think Fallon will have no problem with 11:30 because he is more approachable to the traditional Tonight audience. It will be interesting to see what happens to Letterman.
He seems to be phoning it in lately.

I think Letterman will be revitalized with new competition in his slot, new competition broadcasting out of NY at that.
