Back to Jon and Kate...why did the media focus on Jon when Kate was such a tyrant?

Sorry for an additional question.... but ... with the issues with the Bachelor - was this an integrity issue or a program practices issue?

I was trying to think ... this is a competition right, but there is no material prize... then I realized there is a ring given at the end paid by the show and awarded to the couple... so in essence this has game show rules attached to it.

So - is the situation like the rules put into place after the 21 scanadl or is this solely a reputation issue for ABC?

Re Leno vs Conan
The real expectation was that Leno would retire leaving things ok for Conan and Jimmy. Leno wanted to stay on TV so they gave him 10pm and he could change it up a bit, possibly making it a success rather than a failure. Neither happened so Leno has more muscle than Conan. What do you think is Leno's real plans for the future?

Another factor is the HUGE effort, cost, committment and sacrifice Conan's staff and coworkers made moving from NY to LA. If Conan stays or goes to another network, would he have more flexibility to return to NY? How happy is the Conan, the band, etc with being in LA? Doesn't it work better with Jimmy in NY and Letterman, etc. and Tonight Show adding some LA into the mix?

Definitely changing the times or a short "pre tonight show" 1/2 hour just won't work and everyone will lose.

Jay is better than Conan but both could use some new bits and make a better show that more people want to watch. Both are stale and some skits, segments are too weak to hold viewers.

If Conan went to another network and competed directly with Letterman and Leno - all would lose don't you think - can network TV support that many comedy shows after the News?

Would you guys please agree not to post anything further about Michael Jackson ever? His fans are terrifying and scare me.

All this talk about Jay and Conan... what does Fallon and his people have to say about this? I've been really enjoying Jimmy lately, and he and the Roots are getting just as much of a shaft.
