Shocker: NBC Exec on Team Leno


Not everyone is on team Conan – just creative and funny people. An NBC suit, Dick Ebersol, sure isn’t:

The executive, Dick Ebersol, chairman of NBC Universal Sports, said the reason for Mr. Leno’s return to NBC’s late-night roster after a short stint in prime time this season was a simple one: disappointing ratings for Conan O’Brien’s “Tonight Show.”

Referring to the pointed jokes made this week by Mr. O’Brien and David Letterman of CBS, Mr. Ebersol said it was “chicken-hearted and gutless to blame a guy you couldn’t beat in the ratings.”

He added that “what this is really all about is an astounding failure by Conan.”

People, please! Can’t we just split the difference and blame Andy Richter? The man is television poison. Those are four separate hyperlinks, mind you.
