NBC throwdown

Posted By on Tue, Jan 12, 2010 at 3:32 PM

Conan O'Brien digs in his heels. He won't take a demotion to a later hour to allow Jay Leno into the late-night lineup. He wants out of his NBC contract instead and his statement on the matter is clear and forceful.

Scoff if you will. The Tonight Show is big news to a lot of people who live by the TV. The play in newspapers across the country has been interesting -- Page One and extensive some places, news brief roundups in others. It's a big money media story with familiar personalities speaking with rare candor about network relationships (See Late Show host David Letterman's advice to NBC here). I think it's pretty interesting. You?
