Conan should've listened to Norm MacDonald when he appeared as a guest on Late Night with Conan O'Brien less than a year ago.
In the famous appearance, MacDonald tells Conan he's been "outfoxed again" by Jay Leno:
"Your agent's like...remember that discussion we had where you said "I'll never have to fucking follow Leno again?"Uh, yeah, Conan remembers:
The recent announcement by NBC - that Leno will move to O'Brien's starting time to do a 30-minute show and Conan will be moved back half an hour to 11 - is hugely humiliating to Conan.
I don't think there's any way in hell that he'll stick around NBC, for these reasons:
1. FOX has already said the network would give O'Brien a show. O'Brien has already worked at FOX on the Simpson's.
2. ABC has no late night entertainment show at that hour and, in the past, has proved willing to move Nightline.
3. Conan idolizes David Letterman. When NBC screwed Letterman over, he went to CBS, where he's been successful for years. Inspiration for Conan!
Dear Bill Carter: please write a sequel to the Late Shift.
Update: I just noticed that Dave Shorr scooped me on this. Curse you, Dave Shorr!
