Conan O'Brien gets the boot by NBC

Conan O'Brien is one of the funnies comedians a network can ever have. He has done well with his Late Night with Conan O'Brien show. He finally gets his chance to shine with the Tonight Show replacing Jay Leno. Jay Leno moves into the evenings. Jimmy Fallon replaces Conan's time slot in the late night telecasts on NBC. Then came the really bad news.

Jay Leno's current evening show is getting low ratings in terms of TV viewership. NBC decides to give Jay Leno's evening show the big ax. What happens now, where will Jay Leno go?

As it stands Jay Leno will take over the Tonight Show, where Conan O'Brien is. Jimmy Fallon will be unaffected. Jay and Conan have taken this situation in a joking manner, but in the end Conan has to face the axe and move out of NBC with a $45 million dollar bailout!

I say NBC has been unfair to Conan O'Brien during this whole ordeal. Honestly, it should have been Jay Leno to get the axe and move on to the other networks, not Conan. This is a bad example of revamping your television lineup, I understand a show not doing well, but does someone else deserve their television hosting jobs to be taken away because another one is suffering. This is the most absurd thing I've ever heard of. Wow.

As for NBC, they are making a big mistake. If I were the executive producers of the Tonight Show, I'd keep Conan O'Brien in the show and have Jay Leno go somewhere else. No need to ruin another person's job because of someone else's misery.

That's all I'm going to say!
