It's sad and funny, that Leno thinks the NBC executives are now snakes. What did he expect? ....Leno is an ass and should have told NBC to shove it, but selfishly he wanted his show back. Now I just follow Conan on Facebook and watch the funny clips he posts on his website.
Listen, I think Conan is much funnier than Jay. But the fact of the matter was that Jay was basically fired from a job he was successful at (commercially anyway) and loved. He was replaced by a guy who didn't get as high ratings so they asked him back. I don't see how that's his fault or why he should have refused to take back the gig, especially when it would have probably just led to Fallon or someone else replacing Conan.
If anything, it's the suits who orchestrated the change and then panicked when Conan wasn't an overnight sensation who deserve the blame.
I don't disagree with you at all, I'm not saying Leno shouldn't have accepted. I'm just saying that he shouldn't now be shocked by NBC's behavior, it was clear they were snakes all along.
By the way, you've attributed a quote to me that I certainly did not say...at no point did I call Leno an ass or say that he should have told NBC to shove it, it looks like tighr
said that. I'm sure you didn't do it on purpose (at least I hope so), but I would appreciate it if you would edit your post to fix the error.
