Oh, No. . . . No.



An open letter to NBC:

Maybe you shouldn't have decided what your 2009 late-night lineup would look like sometime during 1967. Maybe that wasn't the brightest idea. Maybe you shouldn't have given us the false hope of Jay Leno's career being left to wither and die in the 10:00 time slot. Or maybe you should have just kicked him off the network entirely, so that affiliates couldn't tempt you to reinstate him.

We've been through so many good times, NBC: Cosby. Cheers. Alex P. Keaton. Bull.

But that was a lifetime ago -- back when Jay Leno's comedy might have seemed remotely fresh. If you double-cross Conan and put The Chin back at 11:30 to placate whatever humorless, geriatric hordes are gathering at your gate, I will burn our memory book! You will be dead to me, NBC!! Do you hear me, NBC??!!

I am with you, sir. NBC will reap it's just rewards if it hoses Conan.

Holy stupidity. I'm speechless. And furious.
