Message Boards Explode in Wake of Leno Debacle

The stunning Leno reshuffle sent the AST message board into a tizzy, with users almost unanimously banding together to create virtual puffy paint Team Conan signs.  A few unique insights from the boarders stood out:

They are actually taking another very big and unprecedented gamble with a 30 minute show that starts off after 11:30. You would think they learned their lesson after Jay's current show. Unfortunately, when they look at what they perceive as a lack of success with Jay and Conan's shows, they probably see it as Conan being the one fucking things up. Things were great before when Jay started at 11:30 and Conan started at 12:30. Why did Conan have to go and ruin everything? I guess they may even be right, if all you care about is numbers. --Berliner

And this one:

If you look at it from Conan's side, he's the boss. His decision affects an entire staff of people who are relying on him for their jobs. (Of course they can find other work, but still). If he walks, he's essentially laid off a staff of talented and devoted people who uprooted themselves from New York to ride this train to hell.
I think Conan will take the new time slot just to keep the show going. The media is stating that Fox is not interested in taking him on anymore, nor is ABC. --Trikywu

Noticeably absent so far from the fiery online discussion are the usually chatty Tonight Show staffers who can be seen lurking on the board but not commenting.  All eyes will be on the monologues tonight.
