Conan O’Brien Says No to NBC’s ‘Leno Show’ Plans

UPDATE: Okay, make that two things you should read: O’Brien has just released a statement saying he will not go along with NBC’s plans to move his Tonight Show to 12:05AM to accommodate The Jay Leno Show’s move to 11:30. Nice guy or not, and O’Brien is a nice, professional guy, no one should be treated so badly, so publicly.

If you read nothing else about the ongoing Jay Leno Show/NBC/Conan O’Brien mess – make that hot mess – check out Gawker.TV‘s round-up of Conan’s brutally clever (and completely deserved) reactions to NBC’s shabby treatment of him and handling of the debacle on last night’s Tonight Show.

It’s hard to pick a favorite quote – he really lets everyone involved have it – but the quip about his possible future plans including “Move to FOX and follow their hit 24 with a new show called 24:05” might be it.

Meanwhile, also in the Gawker round-up: David Letterman and Craig Ferguson‘s comments on the fuss and NBC’s treatment of O’Brien. Letterman, of course, knows all too well what it’s like to be unfairly treated as leftovers to Leno (who, by the way, in years of hosting The Tonight Show and the Leno Show, has never been as funny as Conan was in that one segment last night).
