"Unfortunately, it got a little nasty," Gaspin said. "But I also think it was short lived. It was of the moment and it ratcheted up and it also ratcheted down pretty quickly as well."
NBC is hoping that it all goes away, too. The network won't know until March 1 whether he's been permanently damaged or not by the disastrous decision to try him in prime time and the clumsy way he recovered his old job. March 1 is when Leno returns to late night, opposite David Letterman on CBS.
Leno said he always felt he was doing the right thing, but wondered "how can you do the right thing and have it go so wrong?"
"We're going to do it with a little humour and we're going to do it with a little wink to the audience," he said. show, cancelled because affiliates complained about its low ratings, instantly transformed Leno's public image into that of a failure after a 15 year run as the king of late night television. EST to accommodate Leno's shortened comedy program. Leno has been vilified for taking back a job he plainly didn't want to leave in the first place, despite promising more than five years ago that he would.
Bianculli said he hears predictions from many in the industry that Leno's late night audience, after an initial burst due to curiosity, will settle in at between 10 per cent to 20 per cent below what he had been averaging before leaving last spring.
While Leno was in prime time, longtime rival Letterman took over as the most popular late night comic.
That way, he'd be preparing another "Tonight" show monologue, not going on the national shrink's sofa across from Oprah Winfrey, as he was Thursday. He wouldn't have seen a photo of himself doctored to look battered on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, symbolizing television's biggest Nike Air Max 110 White flop ever. And he wouldn't have heard the rough jokes with the serious subtext that he had sandbagged Conan O'Brien.
Jimmy Kimmel, in a brutal appearance on Leno's own show, was asked about the best prank he had ever pulled and said: "I told a guy that five years from now, I'm going to give you my show. And then when the five years came, I gave it to him. And then I took it back almost instantly. Leno, he wrote, "much like Adolf Hitler, is a master at making secret demands for foreign territory and then acting like the wronged party."
in and shot everybody, I mean, it would have been 'Oh, people were murdered,' but at least it would have been a two day story. NBC could not have handled it worse. EST show ends Feb. 9, making way for coverage of the Winter Olympics. NBC will promote his return to late night but in a low key fashion since it's been only a few months that it hyped his prime time show, Gaspin said.
While Leno, who turns 60 in April, draws a larger audience than O'Brien, his audience is older and that's not considered a good thing in television. Barnhart wonders whether, in five more years, NBC might regret essentially choosing Leno over O'Brien.

but is reputation permanently diminished
During his Winfrey appearance, Leno said he was devastated when NBC executives asked him to leave the "Tonight" show because they wanted to give the show to O'Brien. He said he told "a white lie on the air" when he said he was going to retire because he assumed he would find another job in show business.
He said it was agonizing. "I would spend a lot of time just thinking about it, going, 'I think I'm a good guy. Am I not a good guy?"'
He said he felt "really bad" for O'Brien, whom he hasn't talked with. "I think it's unfair, but TV is not fair," Leno said.
"I had a show," he said. "My show got cancelled. They weren't happy with the other guy's show. They said we want you to go back. I said OK. And this seemed to make a lot of people upset. And I go, 'Well, who wouldn't take that job?"'
"Anything (NBC) did would have been better than this," Leno said. "Anything. Anything they did. If they had come Air Max Pink And Black
Even though he believes Leno's actions were "despicable," Barnhart said Leno's reputation would not suffer.
It's satire, yes. But Adolf Hitler?
"Most people, at the end of the day, they want to laugh," said Barnhart, founder of the TV Barn Web site and a late night expert, "and nobody delivers (laughs) at a higher volume than Jay Leno does. He's not Michelangelo out there. He's more like Jerry Bruckheimer, shooting off the hits and following a close formula. He's very good at what he does."

For Leno, the unknown is whether he has a consistent, loyal audience, or if he gained new fans in prime time who might not be willing to follow him to "Tonight."
