Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, September 27, 2021

Tonight is the 50th anniversary of NBC’s “Tonight Show”. The network is marking the occasion by formally announcing that Conan O’Brien will take the reins from Jay Leno in five years.

So much for hoping that O’Brien would improbably join David Letterman at CBS. I can’t believe CBS didn’t dangle the carrot, with speculation that Letterman isn’t going to stick around for too many more years. But I guess O’Brien figures he’s established at NBC, and the network obviously stepped up.
