NBC Executives Were Right About Leno

NBC executives are patting themselves on their backs for the recent decline in ratings on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

"We called that shit seven years ago when we approached Conan to take over the Tonight Show," said Senior Junior VP Tim Urckson while his assistant assisted him in patting himself on his back. "I knew Leno would soften once he crossed that 60 years old mark. All it took was yanking him off the spot publicly, letting his audience scatter and then putting him back."

Does NBC regret pulling Leno off in the first place? "Are you kidding?" Mr. Urckson asked with a stern look that his assistant quickly put on his face. "We went to Conan because we thought this was going to happen. I'm like Magellan."
