Conan's Sidekick Andy Richter Enjoying The "Vindication" Of Jay Leno's Poor Ratings

| Filed under: TV NewsJay LenoConan O'Brien


If NBC thought that Team Coco had let all the bad blood float under the bridge, they were wrong!

Seems that Jay Leno isn't pulling the same kind of numbers as he once was on The Tonight Show. Sources report that his numbers ahve dipped well below Conan O'Brien's old take, losing 21 percent in his overall audience since Coco was booted.

Someone who is parituclry happy about that is Andy Richter, Conan's trusted right-hand man. In an new interview about his new gig with Conan on TBS, Andy admitted he was pleased to hear the news. He explained:

"I don't want to wish ill will on anybody, but I would be lying to you if I said it didn't feel a little bit fun to hear that — that there wasn't some kind of feeling of reward in that. I don't want to wish ill will on anybody, but I would be lying to you if I said it didn't feel a little bit fun to hear that — that there wasn't some kind of feeling of reward in that…It is kind of vindicating in a way. I think that one of the reasons we ended up leaving was because of their impatience with us. And I think that was a mistake on their part. So I had a hunch about that, and it is nice to have that hunch seemingly proven true."

Revenge can be sweet! Now, imagine the double-whammy it will be if Conan's new show gets high ratings than Leno's…and on cable no less!

    Ugh, I am so tired of hearing about Conan O'Brien. Such a whiner. Leno continues to beat that pervert Dave Letterman, and that's really all that matters.

  2. 2

    Ok Letterman, Leno and Conan all suck. Chelsea Lately and Craig Ferguson own late night.

  3. 3

    I for one, hate Jay Leno

    And David Letterman

    They both are old crotchety men that aren't funny, unless you're 65 years old.

    Perez, I love your site but isn't it time you hired an editor? Lately I have seen more and more surprising grammatical and spelling errors in your posts that didn't seem to be there when you ran the entire blog. I'm not sure if you're posting from a mobile station, or if you have someone else posting for you, but I think it'd be a great investment to hire an editor to proofread & correct any issues found. Just a recommendation, love.

    "parituclry" ——WTF MARIO?!?!??! FUCKEN PROOFREAD

    Someone didn't wake up yet… the spelling errors!

    ahve? …. have
    parituclry? …..PARTICULARLY

    I stopped reading this story after that one.

    I watched Leno for years but lately his interviewing style has turned me off so much, I no longer watch him. He touches the guests to get their attention, turns their comments into stories about himself, his childhood, etc. I'm there to listen to the guest, not Leno prattle on about himself.

    Don't worry, Conan's lover Andy is going to bring down his new show just like he brought down all of his other shows.
    I have no idea why he is so obsessed with that dude, he is a total loser and he is not funny.
    They have got to be involved romantically.

    I'm sorry but Jay Leno is The Tonight Show. I do not find Conan O'brian funny at all. Yes The Tonight Shows ratings may be low right now but the Tonight Show is always going to be The Tonight Show not just another late night show and no one can take that away from Jay.

    I think the Jimmy's (kimmel and Fallon) kick all their butts but I also love Conan.

    Now about the errors on this site. Perez, please listen to us as fans of your site. The spelling and grammatical errors are really out of control lately. I agree with mtam0707 - hire an editor.

    He's wrong there. Conan never brought in more then 2.5 million while Jay still brings in 3.9 million a week.

  12. 12

    Sorry Andy. Jay's show is funnier than Conan's, and that is the bottom line.

  13. 13

    You copied and pasted the quote too many times…These proof reading issues need to be resolved. Oh and the length of time it takes for comments to show up is ridiculous. Very third rate performance.

    First of all, Conan isn't funny…at all. Never has been, never will be. Jay will always be a lot funnier than Conan could ever hope to be. Second, Conan and everyone who's whining along with him should just get over it. Third, I have to wonder if anyone else noticed what's happening for Conan's new show? He's pushing Lopez Tonight back by an hour. I know that's not the only complaint that Conan had with Leno, but isn't that a big part of why Conan left that network?!?! When the Jay Leno Show didn't work out and the NETWORK put Jay back on the Tonight Show (Note: Jay didn't come in and kick Conan out from behind the desk himself) Conan was given the slot right behind Jay, and he threw a fit and left. Now he's kicking another show out of its spot, pushing it an hour back and no one is supposed to complain about that. How does that make any sense?
