Conan is the Next Host of the Tonight Show

A while back Ben posted on the difficult position Conan was in - Jay seemed locked-in forever, Conan wanted the 11:30 spot, but he wanted to stay loyal to NBC. Plus, there were questions about how well Conan's 18-25/12:30 AM focus would translate at 11:30 (though people said the same thing about Letterman). Well, NBC made the right choice. 11:30 will definitely be weird for Conan, but I think without some career advancement he was going to quit. We can't have that. Plus, the switch isn't happening until 2009, so by that time, Conan (and his audience) will all be old enough for primetime anyway.
