The Tonight Show to NYC?

Whatever you're playing at Bloomberg, stop it now. We don't even watch The Tonight Show with Jay Leno but there's no reason why when Conan takes over the show at the end of the decade that the show should leave its cushy Burbank studio. We think Conan will do just fine out here on the left coast. In fact, the pasty talk show host could use some sun. And what does New York's Mayor Bloomberg care for anyway? He won't be in office in 2009 so there's no political capital in stealing the show away from Los Angeles.

Maybe a move out west could even get Andy Richter back on the show.
