Like Charlie Brown trying to kick a football, NBC just whiffed again!
In the past year, the flailing network needlessly torpedoed Ann Curry's career, completely bumbled the coverage of the Olympics, and even announced the premature death of
astronaut rock legend Neil Young!
Replacing Jay Leno on The Tonight Show with the younger Jimmy Fallon is just about the only thing they did right!!
…Or did they?!
As it turns out, Jay's sweeps ratings are in and they're phenomenal. He is CRUSHING David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel right now!
Mr. Fallon is winning the 12:35 slot with Late Night, but his numbers aren't nearly as favorable!!
Uh oh!! Positive ratings might put NBC in quite the pickle!! Mmmm, PICKLES!!
Do U think they'll really yank their only hot tamale OR will NBC backtrack again and extend a contract to holographic Jay through 2085?
