It’s being widely reported that Jay Leno may move to 11 p.m. or 11:30, depending on the source. Leno himself joked about it last night. But as for the late-night competition? Only Craig Ferguson spent the opening moments of his outlet, the Late Late Show, discussing the most important thing happening in his industry:
“I don’t know if it is true, but this is the rumor I’ve heard this is what is going around the late night circles,” said Ferguson. “Jay moves to 11:30 and does a half-hour show between 11:30 and 12. Then Conan does 12 to 1 and then Fallon does 1 till 2. I think that is what the rumor is tonight. When I look at… NBC making this terrible mess of the schedule, guys that they are moving are real nice guys… Anyway, I just want to assure you of this: I do like to think that we still make the crappiest late night TV show. When all is said and done we will be remembered that… we sucked at the same damn time ever night. Every night join me right here and you will get your regular dose of suck.”
Leno joked about the situation himself. But once again, Ferguson proves he’ll go where no other late-night host will go… for now. Keep up the flow of info, and the flow of anti-suckage, Craig!
