Medium found a new home. The Law and Order shows have found other time slots on NBC's line up. So they didn't really cancel much of anything (unless you count Medium). They simply did not seek out more replacements for a very weak lineup.
    They canceled Southland before the season even started and the first season had pretty good ratings and good reviews.

    I'm still annoyed about Southland being cancelled. I emailled NBC and complained about it when it happened. I know it got picked up by TNT, but I don't get that station, so I'm out of luck.

    Letterman is doing even more (this is Letterman's first show taping since this story broke).

    Not only is Letterman TOTALLY mocking NBC non-stop (for like... 20 minutes straight), he's also TOTALLY ripping on Jay Leno personally.

    And are we surprised? Leno made that viscous comment the other day about wishing he'd slept with his staffers. This is Dave sensing payback, and you know... a MEAN Letterman is a funny Letterman.

    I'm sure if you google something like "watch southland episodes online" you'll find a good site

    Re: Jay Leno's New Show

    tv.gawker.com has Conan, Letterman and Ferguson's total eviscerations of NBC and Jay up on their site now. They're all in one post there which should be pretty easy to find (its on the front page of tv.gawker.com).

    A bit further down, they also have Jay's REALLY lame attempt tonight to paint himself as some kind of victim in this. He just comes off like an idiot.

    Letterman's is especially viscous, but as I said before its certainly no surprise after Leno's cheap shot at Dave the other day.

    All better than Leno at 10.
    Heard there might be a Los Angeles version of L & O (nicknamed LOLA - no, not joking).

    Conan is done at NBC.

    Now what if Jay Leno quits too, rather than looking like a bad guy for taking back the Tonight Show?

    Geez, I don't blame Conan for being mad if they had promised him the Tonight Show slot for the last 6 years. That is a loooong time to wait for that spot. Who knows how many other offers he had during that time?

    It will be interesting to see if Leno wants it back.

    I can't stand Leno. Not only do I not find him remotely funny it seems as though virtually everything on his show is copied from somewhere else.
    I don't think there's a single original thought among him and the writing team.

    He should have just gone when he said he was going to go and left the way clear for Conan.
    He's coming off like Barbara Walters, doesn't know when to call it a day and can't bear the thought of not being on tv any longer.
