I just think what they did to Conan is dirty pool. I hope he comes back on FOX and kills Leno in the ratings.

That said, if I could get $45 million as a 'sorry' - I would tend to take it, especially since his career isn't exactly going to be over because of any of it.

That's the real reason they axed Conan. Leno's buy out was closer to 100 million. Which is utterly ridiculous.

What this is is typical corporate control over programming...
TV execs have never been more out of touch with their audiences.

Because Leno didn't want to retire. He was told by NBC that he was going to be retired and that O'Brien was taking over. It wasn't his decision, but rather than create a huge stink about it (which would have been pointless anyway), he said okay, fine. The last thing Leno wanted was drama.

The new show NBC offered him gave Leno an opportunity to keep working, which is what he wanted to do anyway. Why would he turn it down in that regard?

I keep saying, both Leno and O'Brien got screwed by NBC. O'Brien loses his show and Leno becomes the de facto scapegoat for it and gets called a bad guy (and even worse names) by the pro-O'Brien camp.

Although last time I checked, Leno didn't own or run NBC, nor was in charge of its programming, but it seems as though that's beside the point...

Yeah, that's it, they both got screwed. The real jerks here are the NBC execs. But still this
pretty much sums up my take on the whole issue...

He had such a great gig at the Late Show and I very much enjoyed him on the Tonight Show as well. Definitely will be interesting to see what he does next.

I still think somebody made him tone it down when he was on Tonight Show. He had so much great stuff on Late Night and that style finally came back on his last week on Tonight.
