Nov 4th 2010 11:52AM Perhaps the ASSociate principal has a phobia of horses. The horse was probably in more danger from the students than vice versa.
Jun 22nd 2010 9:49AM I agree. It does seem that the tween vote fuels the competition. However, I question why AI tries to expand that portion of their audience; it's not like the tween population is out buying Fords. I would rather see the age limit raised also.
Jan 27th 2010 10:07PM Hey Mike Ryan, where do you get your facts from? Its seems that you were a fly on the wall in so many places. How about letting us know the names of who can back you up about the people you trash in your article. It seems you have taken some public knowledge facts and embellished them to fit your own personal opinion (pro Letterman). Bottom line, The Tonight Show is like a car that NBC owns. Just like your car, you get to decide who drives it. First, NBC let Steve Allen their car, The Tonight Show. Then Jack Parr drove it. Then Johnny Carson drove it. There were a slew of guest drivers throughout its history (google The Tonight Show for a list.) They were all great for different reasons. However, no matter how long they drove it or how great they were (and Johnny was great), none of them owned the car. So, Johnny Carson did not get to choose who would drive the car that he never owned. NBC did and they chose Leno because they felt he would be a better driver than Letterman (and he is) and it showed in his ratings. Leno won the ratings war shortly after Letterman's show aired until the day he was replaced by Conan. Then Letterman began to win the ratings war. Of course Letterman is unhappy and bitter! Not only did Jay get The Tonight Show instead of him he won the ratings war too. Now, that Letterman is finally winning the ratings war, Jay will soon be back in the race. Poor Letterman. He should just shut up and stop acting like a child having a temper tantrum when he doesn't get something he wants. NBC was stupid to think that Conan would be better than Jay at 11:30, but at least they fixed their mistake. (That car analagy was for you Jay!)
Jan 15th 2010 10:42PM You got it right Andy!
Jan 15th 2010 7:19PM I hope Conan gets another show on another network at 11:30. Just so we can watch his ratings suck again and can stop the debate.
Jan 14th 2010 4:15PM Seems like Conan's celeb supporters are just like his guests... D-Listers!
Jan 13th 2010 7:06PM Mike Ryan, the author of this article, seems to make up and twist things to support his OPINIONs. Obviously, people pointed out his mistakes in his first team O'brien post. He wouldn't have written this one if they hadn't. I can't wait until Leno is back where he belongs and once again wins the ratings war. You can postulate any way you want why Conan is the best yet his ratings still suck. The proof is in the pudding. Hey Mike, who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? I bet you know who lives in a pineapple under the sea!
Dec 7th 2009 5:35PM The core characters of Wisteria Lane (Bree, Gabby, Susan and Lynette (I guess you could include Catherine) need better story lines that are in sync with their original character traits. The show should bring in Heather Locklear who is wasting her time on the new Melrose Place (her character is the only interesting one). Heather could turn Wisteria Lane into the bitch'n neighborhood it once was. Expand the gay characters storyline too.
Jan 2nd 2009 9:36PM Before Blago named Burris, Burris was saying that Blago should not name a senator and resign. Now that he was the one named, he does an about face and accepts the nomination. Any respectable person would have declined the nomination from Blago. The act of accepting has tarnished his reputation.
Sep 27th 2008 9:37PM How can Ed McMahan ask for some of the money back from Publisher Clearing House winners? He didn't work for Publishers Clearing House, he worked for American Family Publishers; different company different sweepstakes.
