83 Percent Want Conan

Earlier this week, NBC made the announcement: Jay Leno is not ready for primetime. Instead of parting ways, the network has decided to give the former Tonight Show host his old 11:35 p.m. timeslot. Good idea? Not according to a recent TVGuide.com poll.

The website is reporting that 83 percent of viewers want Conan O'Brien to keep his Tonight Show gig. However, it doesn't look good.

After NBC confirmed plans to return Leno to his former timeslot, O'Brien made his own statement:

"I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn't the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy."
