Leno's Broken Promise: 'Here It Is, Conan, It's Yours.'
Five years ago, Jay Leno promised Conan O'Brien he'd step aside in 2009, vowing to hand over The Tonight Show without repeating the bitter fallout of the first late night war. This past week he broke that promise.

2. In the overall scheme of things, this is small potatoes.
That doesn't stop me from thinking Leno is a dick.

3. I concur that Leno is a dick
and I'm with CoCo. I'll follow him.

NBC's biggest mistake was putting Leno in front of Conan - if NBC hadn't done that, then Conan would have been close to a dead heat vs Letterman in ratings war.

Leno is good.....


...for me to POOP on!

5. They shouldn't have never put Leno in front of Letterman! The last
laugh is David Letterman's!

4. I kinda know Jay Leno
Back in high school, I worked the same dealership Jay worked in Boston. Back then, I was told, he was average guy...I worked the same guys that knew him back at the parts department. Though proud to have worked with him, they thought he was not funny and somewhat dunderhead.
