Thank goodness for A&E.

The docu-soap channel has found a way to fill the hole David Hasselhoff left in our hearts when he made his exit from “America’s Got Talent.”

Instead of allowing Hoffians to wallow in despair, A&E has cooked up a new reality series for “the most watched TV star in the world” (according to the Guinness Book of World Records, so says the press release). Those 30-plus years on television add up, you know. FULL POST

NBC's Zucker: It's just business

NBC Universal President and CEO Jeff Zucker made an appearance on "Charlie Rose" Monday, and after lots of hammering from Rose, admitted that the network has clearly made some mistakes with their late night lineup.

Did NBC make the right decision in 2004, when they promised Conan O’Brien the “Tonight Show” seat in order to keep him from packing up for another network? Yes, Zucker said, and he has no regrets about that decision. Trying to keep Jay Leno by giving him his own prime-time show, on the other hand – definitely not the smartest move, said Zucker.

Think you know how to handle a late-night show better than NBC? Conan O'Brien's accepting offers.

O'Brien, still installed for the time being as the host of NBC's "The Tonight Show," at 11:35, put his show up for grabs on the Interwebs' favorite site for inexpensive used goods.

"While I still can," O'Brien informed his audience last night. "I've decided to sell 'The  Tonight Show' on Craigslist. I'm not sure exactly how this works, but while I'm here, I feel like this is the thing to do." FULL POST

At this point, it doesn’t look like the NBC jokes will ever cease. Conan O’Brien served up another helping in his opening monologue for “The Tonight Show.”

"Hi, I’m Conan O’Brien, NBC’s 'Employee of the Month.'

There’s a rumor that NBC is so upset with me, they want to keep me off the air for 3 years. My response to that is, if NBC doesn’t want people to see me, just leave me on NBC.

Time sure does fly. Do you realize that a baby born on the day we did our first “Tonight Show” is now a slightly larger baby? FULL POST

Jay Leno didn’t harp on NBC’s troubles for long in his opening monologue for “The Jay Leno Show,” but he did manage to sneak in a punch aimed directly at Conan O’Brien before dropping the subject.

Here’s the transcript:

“Welcome to the new show, ‘I’m a celebrity, get me off NBC!’ FULL POST

Jay Leno wasn’t the only one still stuck on the NBC debacle during his monologue. Conan O’Brien got a few jokes in as well:

Hi, I'm Conan O'Brien, and I've been practicing the phrase, "Who ordered the mochaccino grande?"

Hosting "The Tonight Show" has been the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for me – and I just want to say to the kids out there watching: You can do anything you want in life.  Unless Jay Leno wants to do it too. FULL POST
