The inside baseball on Conan vs. Leno

The Unsocial Network

Starting to put it together, Jay brought up the other obvious lingering issue. “What happens with Conan?” he said.

“He goes at 12,” Gaspin said. “Everything just moves back.”

“So I wouldn’t get The Tonight Show?” Jay asked.

“No, Conan would keep Tonight,” Gaspin said. Jay stared at him during an extended silence. “Look, we have a tough situation here,” Gaspin finally said. “NBC is in trouble. If you leave or Conan leaves, it gets worse. We really want both of you. We think both of you are big talents.”

I wonder how that all worked out.
