Imagine: Late Nite Shuffle

After recent complaints from NBC affiliates about plummeting ratings for their local news around the country. NBC has decided to switch their evening linup following this years Olympic Winter Games. This shift however plans to move the Jay Leno Show from 10PM to 11:35PM...which will bump The Tonight Show hosted by Conan O'Brien past midnight to 12:05AM. Conan released a statement today that included the following...

But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.

So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn’t matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.

There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.

Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way.


Conan expressed his regret and said the move would also be unfair to Jimmy Fallon who inherited "Late Nite" and to Carson Daly who would both be pushed back. Both he and Leno had their own little jabs at the situation during their respective shows...

"NBC said the show performed exactly as they expected it would and then canceled us. Don't confuse this [with] when we were on at late night and performed better than expected and they canceled us. That was totally different," Leno quipped.

O'Brien had the following to say on his show Monday:

-- "Good evening, I'm Conan O'Brien, the new host of 'Last Call with Carson Daly.' "

-- "This weekend no one was seriously hurt, but a 6.5 earthquake hit California. The earthquake was so powerful that it knocked Jay Leno's show from 10:00 to 11:35."

-- "On the positive side, I have learned a valuable lesson from all this: Never sign a contract that ends with the word 'NOT.' "

The dispute must play itself out and it no doubt will get more interesting in the coming weeks. So stay tuned and

Imagine: RIP Chris Henry

Chris Henry

Despite having a tarnished image from his first couple years in the NFL, and some slight trouble with the law; everyone who knew Chris personally contests that he was a soft spoken kind hearted person. They also say that they had noticed a change in his demeanor and acknowledged his efforts to better his image and his life in general.

"It is with great sadness to learn Chris has passed away,'' Henry's agent, Andy Simms said in a statement. "For those who knew Chris, he was nothing like his public perception. A loving and caring individual, he was thankful for what he had in life, and proud of what he had overcome.''

Imagine: Misunderstandings do Happen

Always check your childs homework..

"Dear Mrs. Jones,
I wish to clarify that I am not now nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out of every single shovel we had and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture doesn’t show me dancing around a pole. It’s supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in."

Enjoy. Use Your IMAGination.

Imagine: Even More Bad News for Tiger??

     At least it's not an affair. The latest news involving Tiger Woods, only that of a bad acquaintance. His name is being tied to a doctor accused of providing athletes with performance-enhancing drugs. Tiger at least I tried to find a picture with a smile in case you remember what those are.

    Tiger_Woods Dr. Anthony Galea was found with human growth hormone and Actovegin, a drug extracted from calf's blood, according to the New York Times. Dr. Galea has treated Tiger Woods and Olympic swimmer Dara Torres.

     Galea visited Woods' home in Florida at least four times in February and March, the newspaper reported, to provide that platelet therapy after his agents were concerned by his slow recovery from June 2008 knee surgery.

Even Tiger Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg posted "I would really ask that you guys don't write this? If Tiger is NOT implicated, and won't be, let's please give the kid a break."

     Woods announced Friday he is taking an indefinite leave from golf to work on his marriage after allegations of infidelity surfaced in recent weeks.

I personally believe he should be left alone and that this whole situation should blow over. The problem is we treat these celebrities like they’re  running for President and expect them to be perfect then its the biggest news ever when we find out there human.”  -Imag

     Nothing has been proven yet, but it has gotten to the point where this entire thing seems like a master diabolical plot to destroy Tiger’s life. Whoever is behind it is doing a damn good job cause the hits just keep coming. I'm pulling for Tiger to get back on top..will he?..idk but Use Your IMAGination.

Imagine: The Soul Train Awards 09'

Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard co-hosted the 2009 Soul Train Awards this past Sunday; in case you missed it. It's been a minute since the Soul Train Music Awards were last held. The show was taped in Atlantla and aired on Centric — the new channel run jointly by BET and MTV, both of which are owned by Viacom. Among those honored this year were L.A. Reid, Babyface Edmonds, and Charlie Wilson. Also in attendance were the Real Housewives of Atlanta who even presented an award. Still there were no exciting "Kanye-esc" moments...not even any world class celebs in attendance. One highlight though was when Terrance Howard gave co-host Taraji P. Henson an open lip kiss...TWICE. This after he recently announced ending his engagement to Columbian actress Zulay Henao...only fueling rumors that the two have become more than just friends. But Im not one to bother with finding out about other peoples' love interests...so you can just Use Your IMAGination...
