Well fuck a freaking duck, I had this giant response to you and I hit a random key and it deleted it.

Anyhoo.

Once upon a time, Jay Leno decided to retire, and his slot at The Tonight Show was given to Conan O'Brien. (This was also the same Tonight Show that was hosted by Johnny Carson ages ago.) Since Conan's original time slot was now open, they decided to give it to Jimmy Fallon (for some ungodly reason), which is now Late Night with Jimmy Fallon instead of Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

I had heard a rumor that after it was all down in the books, Leno decided to NOT retire, but NBC wasn't going to give him The Tonight Show back. (I can't remember if it was a situation of not wanting to bump Conan, or if Conan threatened to move to another network or somesuch.) Thusly, they decided to keep Leno on the air, but give him the time slot that was held by shows like ER and Law & Order, Monday through Friday, since people seem to be not watching those shows as much anymore. (This will be 9 pm or 10 pm, depending upon where you live, before the nightly news.)

That may have been more of an explanation than you were wanting. I'm also certain that if I am mistaken on any of this information, someone will be very happy to correct me :)
