Behold The Tonight Show’s Rotting Corpse


Man, why did NBC even let cameras in there? Now we have a visual representation of the figurative decay that is eating away at the once great network. Can you imagine being one of those people that spent half a year designing and building that thing, only to watch it be torn to pieces a half a year later? Bummer.

Surely, Fox could have just bought the whole package for cheap once Conan moves over there. That would have saved them a bundle, and we could have gotten to keep looking at that excellent Mario Bros. stained glass that was always behind Conan.  That’s probably in Jay Leno’s house right about now.

The biggest bummer about his whole Conan thing? I think NBC might actually renew Heroes due to the fact they now have five empty hours of time to fill a week, and it would then be six if they axed that show. I vote for just doubling the orders for Parks and Rec and 30 Rock instead.

    I think the time has come for a “gritty reboot” of Seinfeld.

    I think Tim Kring should host a talk show. So there.

  • Did you read his AV Club interview?

  • Madison

    I did…I think the writing process they employed sounded terrible. I also thought the interviewer asked a lot of good, relevant questions – and it seemed like Kring had a lot of excuses.

    This really depresses me. I completely agree about doubling Parks and Rec and 30 Rock. How awesome has Parks and Rec been this season? It was a slowwww starting show when it premiered last year, but this season has been pure gold. DJ ROOMBA!!

    I found myself nodding along last week’s episode when Ann was saying how obese kids are in Indiana…because I witness it on a daily basis. “Husky” children, I mean.

    I’m all for more Parks & Rec, but, in all honesty, I really hope they decide to keep Chuck going. It’s always been on the cutting board with NBC, so I hope this additional five hours of free space a week helps keep it around.
