First off, many of you may wonder what it means when we say will Jay Leno “pull a Conan” on Jimmy Fallon. What we are referring to is when Jay Leno gave Conan O’ Brien The Tonight Show and then pulled it away from him so he could have it back. Why is no one remembering that this has happened once before with Leno, and he handled it with no class last time. What leads Jimmy Fallon to believe he will do it with class this time? Seriously, it is the question on everyone’s mind. Will Jay Leno “pull a Conan” on Jimmy Fallon?
The reality is, if he did, that would be career suicide for Jay Leno. But wait, Remy. He’s retiring. He no longer has to worry about his career. No, but he does have to worry about his reputation. When Leno did that to Conan, a great deal of respect was lost for him. Many saw it as a slimy move, and we are sure it is a move Leno is not too proud of. But regardless, it is a move he did. Knowing that, we all cannot help but wonder if that is something he would be willing to do, and what has Jimmy Fallon done to ensure that it WON’T happen again?
The sad truth is, if Jay Leno “pulled a Conan” on Jimmy Fallon, the masses would be outside his offices with torches and tridents, and I don’t think that is something he wants to deal with again.
