Just call me Dick: Ebersol on Tonight Show follies

Because being in charge means never taking the fall

Too much has been written about NBC's ridiculous move pushing Conan out of the Tonight Show chair to bring back Leno.

Jay Leno over Conan O'Brien. Really? That's even worse than Johnny Carson favoring Leno over David Letterman.

Jack Paar's coming back, and boy is he pissed.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).
