Team Coco Goes Down the Tubes
Last night, after watching hours of earthquake coverage — do the CNN reporters all work out at the same gym? — we found ourself catching up on late-night Leno-bashing, which truly was, as they say, comic relief. So, while there are far more important things to talk about today, we’ll use that as an excuse to present the latest shenanigans.
TMZ reports that, as predicted, Jay has re-signed (alas, not resigned) for a one-hour Tonight Show, following the Winter Olympics. People, in turn, says Conan’s last Tonight will be a week from Friday, after which the show was already scheduled to take a break.
For added fun, Deadline Hollywood says that Jeff Zucker, NBCU chief (the U is for Universal — keep up, folks!) and stick-figure star of Craig Ferguson’s opening monologue last night, is threatening to keep Conan off the air for the three-year duration of his contract.
Take it away,
keyboard cat Hitler Meme!
Instant update! NBC denies the TMZ report.
