conan v nbc: dispute settled

In Uncategorized on January 21, 2010 by Burke Tagged: , , , ,

i’m sitting here watching the tonight show with conan o’brien and find myself legitimately upset that’ tomorrow night will be his last night.  it sucks but that’s business. i don’t think, however, that the tonight show franchise will fully recover.  to me, it feels like the end of an era.  jay leno is a good guy.  i just feel like his approach to the show and his comedy stylings are out of touch with my generation.  i feel like my generation relates far better to conan than to jay.  the only complaint i have with conan on his way out the door is the money he is wasting on these new characters.  while i do feel like it’s funny and it’s a way to stick it to nbc…why not figure out a way to funnel that money into a charity?  i hope he at least auctions off the “characters”  and donates that money to charity.  i really enjoyed ben stiller’s dig at nbc for their wastefulness (although i know it was meant to express how ludicrious it is to cancel conan for “poor ratings” after such a short time).  here’s hoping that conan makes his way to fox or abc soon.
