And we bet NBC thought they could sneak this by the masses… LOLz!
As excited as many people are that Jimmy Fallon is taking over for Jay Leno at The Tonight Show, we can't help but point out that NBC's press release announcing the move COMPLETELY ignores Conan O'Brien's short lived time as Tonight Show host, which briefly lasted from June 2009 to January 2010.
The release states:
"Leno has hosted The Tonight Show with Jay Leno since taking over the reins from television icon Johnny Carson in 1992"
So we guess NBC is treating The Tonight Show from 2009-2010 like the 13th floor in some hotels…
It straight up doesn't exist!
And many peeps are obviously upset by this omission — and seemingly blatant DIG — at Conan!
Ch-ch-check out some of the ANGRY tweets …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
