It was a tough weekend for NBC, which was caught by the ever-watching eye of the media on two fronts. First in the cross-hairs were the network’s many, many late night programs. The bottom line: Jay Leno’s on at 11:35 pm now, but only for a half hour. Conan O’Brien is on at 12:05 am, because his contract maybe says ‘The Tonight Show’ can’t start after that. Jimmy Fallon’s pushed back to 1:05 am and no one seems to care about Carson Daly. But he just signed a deal to get back to his radio roots, so no big whoop.
Also mentioned: Sasha Grey’s porny Peta ad, Ashley Greene’s semi-nude Sobe ad, the first-ever exclusive Kindle distribution deal, and you should probably read this even though we didn’t talk about it.
