TMZ: Leno gets hour long “Tonight Show”

According to TMZ, Leno and NBC have struck a new deal. Guess this means I won’t be turning on NBC at 11:30. What a dumb move. Can’t believe NBC failed this miserably with the situation. Way to make a mockery of one of the greatest franchises in TV history. Way to pick the less funny guy for a 2nd time. What a disaster.
NBC will at best be the 4th option at 11:30 for me. Conan, Colbert and Letterman are all miles ahead. I’m not even counting the fact that if those guys are having off nights….I’ll put on ESPN instead. So….good riddance NBC.
P.S Can someone pass a memo to NBC saying that “Late Night” is supposed to be funny. Could they possibly pick two more more boring guys then Leno and Fallon?

John Madden Retires

Just woke up to the news that John Madden has decided to retire. It will really strange watching football next year without him. MSNBC looks back at the legendary career.

He’s had his share of critics over the years but to me he’s one of the first things that come to mind when you talk NFL. From his coaching days in Oakland, to his days teaming with Pat Summerall on CBS and Fox to Monday Night Football and then finally NBC’s Sunday Night Football. At 73 can’t really blame the man. After all he doesn’t fly anywhere as he’s afraid of flying and riding by RV sure has to get tiresome.

As for who takes his place in the NBC booth….Chris Collinsworth would be my guess. NBC has been grooming him for the gig for the past couple of years.

I miss the days of Madden/Summerall and Madden/Micheals. I hate the “radio” voice that they have now. They need a broadcasting team in the game. I will be getting ’09 for 360….as long as its not the ESPN crew (as I don’t know how they’d work the 3 man team into the game) I don’t care who they get.
