    NBC is going to lose a large part of it's 18-29 demographic for that time slot. The smart thing to do would be to cut Leno (seriously, who watches his show?), but there's too much loyalty there. Alternately, moving Conan to his old 12:35 slot and cutting Jimmy Fallon and Carson Daly would be SUPER (who watches those shows?). Hopefully Conan and staff will get a good opportunity out of this.

    Who's going to be laughing the most at 11:35? Kevin Eubanks, of course.

    frick i thought it was just a rumor.
    i think conan was the only meat to their late light programming. or at least its only saving grace from it seeming trashy. there was a certain class to conan nbc will lose without him.

    A lot more people than watch Conan, or than watch Leno himself at 10pm. Hence the problem. All the arguments in favor of Conan are based on a preference for his humor or a respect for the sanctity of an agreement. There is no question that as soon as Leno comes back on at 11:35, the ratings will go back up.

    conan has a type of humor that doesn't appeal to the majority of the population. think everybody loves raymond and you've got jay leno. ;P

    out of all the late night dudes, i prefer conan and craig ferguson. letterman is fine but i can't stand paul shaffer so i tune out.

    It is unwise to back an INFJ into a corner.

    I don't really watch either show, but doesn't Leno enjoy more popularity?

    Best man for the job, and all that.

    He does, both because he's an ESFJ--and ESFJs are more palatable to the masses than INFJs--and also because, typically, when a new host takes over a talk show they lose part of the audience and need some time to rebuild the numbers. Conan didn't get that time...

    yes. as certain as a stranger can be. people assume you have to be non expressive to be introverted but that's just not true.

    In addition to Conan, you have Letterman, an INTJ, and The King, Johnny Carson, an ISTJ. While neither is/was particularly "expressive"--ITJs just aren't--it does make me think that there is something about introversion and judging which is compatible with this kind of talk show format...you need extreme reliability/endurance, you need to be a good host, but you also need to be somewhat...unobtrusive...and allow guests to hog the spotlight in interviews...
