Late Night Wars continue

So whose side are you on? Team Conan or Team Jay?

I, for one, am rooting for Team Conan.

The Webosphere has just now exploded with activity since Conan O'Brien's latest statement on the matter.

He plans on leaving NBC if the network pushes the "Tonight Show" to 12:05 a.m. to give Jay Leno his old 11:35 p.m. time slot.

If Jay can't pull in the numbers at 10 p.m. will a sleepier crowd take him back for a half-hour of laughs? I can't imagine that.

All I know is that Letterman is probably glad he didn't take that"Tonight Show" gig way back. On a brighter note, if Conan ends up leaving, then maybe "American Idol" can snag him to replace Simon Cowell.

Wouldn't that be entertaining?
