Late night wars.....

Since my bedtime has changed from 8:00pm to whenever the heck I please, I have been watching some of the late night television wars. It seems that Conan O'Brien and I will have one thing in common as of tomorrow night. We will both be unemployed. However, I think Conan will have an easier time paying the bills.

Between all the jabs from Leno, Letterman, and Conan, the comedy makes for some good drama. Of course all the tabloids have, or will be weighing in with their observations, since empty inquiring minds want to know. And since controversy attracts, NBC has been getting extra viewers. And the boy riding the bike into the Kia plant probably likes that.

When all is said and done, television is still a vast wasteland.

People are attracted to negative, must be the way we are wired. I'm thinking we could all use a bit of readjusting. If this late night issue, was being handled amicably...nobody would give these guys props for good behavior, they would be ignored.
We humanoids are certainly a strange bunch!

Haven't seen much, but I think I'll watch "Co Co" tonight for the last time. I predict it won't be the last time we see him on TV. I think I heard that NBC is legally forcing him off the air until September. Then he's a free agent.

yes it still is.the sad thing is that Conan blames leno for this mess.Leno said it best on his show when the Network execs canned to show and decided to play around with the schedule.

On one hand, people need a distration from reality now and then. On the other hand, it gets a bit too much when late night TV is talked about much more then all the wars of the U.S. put together.

It is a vast wasteland. I miss most of it. Ok, all of it. But I still love Conan. He is the funniest. :0

I watch mostly documentaries nowadays. I just can't seem to get into shows anymore. I used to like detective shows, but lately "fun" shows about murder and dead bodies just feels morbid and depressing.

Conan is absolutely not funny at all. Good riddance to him.

I just think they should have kept Leno at 11:35 till Leno was ready to retire..Conan is ok, but I dont find him all that funny..

Funny, I was just bloggin' about this myself. I thought Conan went out with a lot of class (which you don't get much of in late night TV) last night.

I don't watch any of them. Nor much TV at all. So I guess for me the Wasteland is wasted.
