    I'd watch it. I have found Conan's story so fascinating because it is all that is right with TV and all that is wrong with TV wrapped in one package.

    I say it is all that is right with TV because TV is a business about ratings and commercials and selling products and making money. One could say that however sloppily they got to their decision, NBC made what they felt was the correct business decision in the end. They feared losing Leno to a competitor would be more damaging then paying Conan $32 million to go away.

    It was everything that is wrong with TV for just about everything else. From the public promise to give Conan the Tonight Show back in 2005 all the way to yanking it away from him after such a short time. It is amazing that NBC could make so many bad decisions about 1 show and how it would effect so much of their operation.

    The icing on the cake is hopefully Conan is somewhat happy and at peace with where he is now. Comedians don't usually get to be happy for long because of how they are wired and driven, but it's fun to have Conan on the air doing goofy stuff again.

    I remember seeing signs up at his Boston show warning people that they were filming something.

    I'm a fan too, but I don't understand why this story gets so much attention. People act like a child was beaten.
