What You Missed Last Night: Jeff Zucker on Charlie Rose

Jeff Zucker
We've heard from Jay Leno, we've heard from Conan O'Brien, we've heard from Dick Ebersol, and we've even heard from Southland's Ben McKenzie. But what about the guy who started all this, Jeff Zucker? He gave an interview to Charlie Rose last night and it's up at Rose's site (I'd embed it here but...I can't).

I love how Rose starts the conversation by saying that things have gone "downhill" for NBC and that it's "in shambles." Zucker quickly corrects him.

I still don't understand why NBC is choosing to abandon Generation-Y. This graphic illustrates just how disconnected Jay Leno is from that audience.

Zucker needs to swallow his pride and keep Conan at the Tonight Show before it's too late.

Zucker pretty much admits in this interview that they just wanted to hang on to Conan so offered him the Tonight Show only as a carrot dangled to keep him around. They never really intended on fully fulfilling that promise. NBC execs have no integrity. What a joke of a company.
