CONAN OFFERS UP NEW OLYMPIC SPORTS

You may have noticed sandwiched in between natural disasters and ACC basketball that the late-night boys over at NBC are having a bit of spat.

The network execs decided to try Leno at 10:00 pm, and gave the reins of the beloved Tonight Show to Conan. Jimmy Fallon took over Conan’s old spot.

Then the network decided to pull Leno (something about local news ratings falling after his show) and move him back to 11:35, bumping Conan to midnight, and sending Fallon to the hinterland of late-night drunks and insomniacs.

Conan thought this bastardized a prized franchise, and apparently he’s not going down without a fight.

To read his letter addressed to the People of Earth, click here. While he is clearly upset with NBC, he did sign off on a lighter note: Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way.

Last night, he had some more fun with the NBC execs, taking another shot with some new Olympic sports.
