haaaaaaaa    

How full of yourselves are you TMZ? How many times in one article can you possibly mention that you 'reported' things first? If I had spies all over the place and encouraged outrageous behavior by your employees, I too would find things out a couple days early. Give it a rest.

What exactly is Conan not able to do until Sept. 1st?

Obviously he can't do his own talk show...

But can he write comedy bits and make appearances? Can he guest host maybe the Jimmy Kimbel show or even Letterman?

Conan is a punk. I hope he goes down faster than a red-headed stepchild chasing a runaway cheese wheel with a $45 million dollar check taped to it.

Network TV programming sucks! Tonight Show style format is DEAD! Bombarding us with stupid commercials constantly like TMZ does actually works in reverse. Even if I like the product, I won't buy it if the commercials are constant and annoying. Papa Johns Pizza, El Pollo Loco, Sit & Sleep.......if your tune or motto tries to stick in my brain, I won't buy your product - EVER! Make the commercials louder than the shows. Go ahead and keep doing the same thing over and over and over..........

So, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so........

I'm just sayin! I'm just sayin! I'm just sayin! I'm just sayin! I'm just sayin!

say or do something new for a change!

repetition is boring!

Viva Argentina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
