Conan assesses his options, 12:05, other networks, or something classier, such as porn?!?

Conan O'Brien addressed and assessed his various options in Monday's monologue, his first back on "The Tonight Show" since NBC told TV critics on Sunday that they were moving Jay Leno back to 11:35 p.m. in March, following the Winter Olympics. What about Conan? He said he could "star in a Lifetime original movie about a woman trapped in an abusive relationship with her network," host a BET show called "White All Night," follow 24 on FOX with "24:05," do "Project Funway" on Bravo. He also took a jab at Leno's chin, saying if he gained 10 pounds of chin he could fool NBC, or maybe get Gary Busey to head up programming, or leave show biz for something more respectable, such as hard core porn. So many options. And yet. What a mess for NBC, which is trying to make the "most" or "best" of it by televising it all?!

  1. Maybe we’re all being gooned and the NBC execs are crazy… like a fox!
    Because I’m SURE their ratings are up amidst all of this kerfuffle.
