Conan O’Brien Being Given The Boot For Leno?
January 8, 2010
It was originally rumored that they might be canceling The Jay Leno Show completely, but NBC denied these rumors earlier this week, saying they were in talks with both Leno and O’Brien, which sent a pretty clear message.
Now TMZ has reported that O’Brien is being given two choice: he can either take the 10 PM time slot and the possible cut in his ratings, handing over the slot to Leno, or he can leave.
It isn’t clear what he is choosing.
The truth is, he could probably get better offers and more dedication from another network. He may even be able to take up a cable slot, which means more than it did in the past, now that everyone and their pet hamster has digital cable.
