Looks like NBC is trying to back out of giving Conan the tonight show.....Check out this story from Broadcasting and Cable:
"After NBC Universal’s high-profile signing of Ben Silverman for the top programming job, Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart might be next on the Peacock’s wish list.NBC Universal President/Chief Executive Jeff Zucker and NBC Entertainment/Universal Media Studios Co-Chair Marc Graboff recently wined and dined the satirical news anchor and his agent, James Dixon.According to a network source, Zucker and Graboff didn’t focus on pitching any specific role at the dinner meeting. “They just made their interest known in finding a way to do business together if Jon was ever available,” says the source, who categorized the talks as “exploratory.”"
Personally, I don't see Stewart wanting to follow Leno at all. If Conan gets screwed over, he'll land on his feet at another network. Full story here:http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/CA6452696.html
