I was reading this yesterday and thought it a bit interesting, but not necessarily suprising. I'm a huge Leno fan, and although Conan can be funny, he's just not Leno IMO. I've watched a lot of Leno's 9PM CST show and enjoyed it. I usually end up DVRing it and flipping through to watch the monologue, whatever "skit" might be going, headlines, and stuff like that. Rarely do I watch the interviews...I could care less most of the time.
What I don't want to see is Leno being a half hour show after the news at night. I'm not sure what to do with Conan, but from what I've read, the late night NBC ratings tanked when the switch was made.
Oh well, just my thoughts on it.
