Weekly Time Waste: Picket Line Edition

Won't Take It Sitting Down

Carson Daly, Like Usual, Came Unprepared

This Week’s Time Waste is in response to the news that Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien, after being screwed around by NBC, are considering calling it quits with the network. In a statement addressed to ‘The People of Earth,” Conan O’Brien said, “After only seven months, with my ‘Tonight Show’ in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.”  O’Brien has indicated that if the Tonight Show gets bumped back to the 12:05AM slot, making room for a half-hour Jay Leno show,  he won’t be coming with it. And according to The New York Post, Jay Leno is furious about NBC’s callousness toward Leno’s successor, which may lead to him breaking ties with the company too. All this spells great news for Jimmy Fallon and Carson Daly, who may well fill the void created by these comedy-powerhouses’ resignations, in what has been described (by me) as “the greatest suck since the vaccuum of space.” I hope you’re happy with yourself, NBC.

  1. Some funny bits about this photo, if you hadn’t noticed: Conan’s face is on a black man’s body, and there’s an ABC truck in the background. Also, Carson Daly.
